Putbus is often referred to as a “town of roses” or “white town”. Beside its devotion to its culture and architecture, Putbus also strives to preserve nature – in the Protected Biosphere Area South-East Rügen – and offers to its visitors deciduous woodland, beautiful alleys, a big historic landscape park and quiet strands at shallow bays.
As a spiritual and cultural centre of Rügen, Putbus has much to offer to its guests. In addition to the unique island’s theatre, visitors can enjoy a yearly festival (music, cabaret and drama), exhibitions in the Orangery, a Clock museum and a Puppet museum, various performances in the historic stables, as well as lectures and concerts.
In the first half of the 19th century, Putbus became the youngest European capital with classicist architecture. It presents a unique combination of nature and cultural romance in the stylish neoclassical surrounding enclosed in a beautiful water- and forest landscapes with carefully preserved nature.
Putbus is an unforgettable architectural experience in the middle of regular landscape parks with glorious views and a charming harbour area.
With its cultural assets, Putbus is a high-standard cultural centre of Rügen. It is the first and the last station of a nostalgic light railway. Putbus is an oasis of health, nature and tranquillity away, yet not very far, from many popular sea resorts on the island.
The starting point for many ways to enjoy a Mediterranean holiday is Lauterbach, a district of Putbus, with its municipal harbour and a private marina.

The historical theatres of Europe are a special part of the European cultural heritage. Whether one considers them as a museum or enjoys a theatre performance; whether they are open to the general public or privately owned – the European history is here alive in all its beauty.
To preserve this treasure for future generations, PERSPECTIV – SOCIETY OF EUROPEAN HISTORICAL THEATRES was founded in 2003. This charitable organisation wishes to:
- support the preservation and restoration of historical theatres
- establish a continuous exchange between theatres and theatre enthusiasts
- initiate and promote research projects
- make the general public aware of this very special European cultural heritage
Members of this society are historical theatres which were built between 1500 and approx. 1900. Anyone, who supports the goals of the society, can also become its member.
The Association strives to consistently promote the Vorpommern Theatre Ballett, contribute to its further development, and make the general public aware of its work for the society and culture.
The cultural purposes of the Association are charitable matters.
