In May 2013, the German Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel inaugurated the natural heritage center of Rügen in the Prora beach resort.
The highlight of the center with an area of 1,900 hectares on the Baltic Sea island is the "nest tower" which is 40 m high and the third tree tower that has been constructed by the WIEHAG company. The tower was built on a hill lying more than 40 m above sea level, offering visitors a breathtaking panorama over the landscape at a height of about 80 m.
