Traditions and customs from A to Z

Orange-coloured superberries from the coast of Rügen island.

The orange-coloured berries on the thorny hippophae bushes are typical of the coastal vegetation here. They contain more vitamin C than citrus fruits and are one of the most important indigenous sources of energy. Visitors like to take them home in the form of oil, drinks (such as tea and juice), sweets and jams, liqueurs and wines, and cosmetics. You can even visit one of Rügen's sea buckthorn plantations at harvest time.
