Nationalpark Jasmund

Because one of my hobbies is stamp collecting, I think it is interesting to "see" Germany also by its stamps. So I am starting today to write a few things about the stamps issued this year. Maybe some of you will like them. I will write in English, because details in German you can find following the link stated below (Source). 

Today´s stamp illustrates a scenery of the Kieler beach in the Jasmund National park (official website http://www.nationalpark-jasmund.de/).
The Jasmund National Park is a nature reserve in the Jasmund peninsula, in the northeast of Rügen island in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany. It is famous for the largest chalk cliffs of Germany, the so called Königsstuhl (German = "king's chair"). These cliffs are up to 161 m high above the Baltic Sea. The undisturbed beech forests behind the cliffs are also part of the national park. Let the video speak for itself.

Consisting of only 30 km², this is the smallest national park of Germany, founded in 1990. I think it would definitely worth a visit.
