Ruegen is a homestead region designed by Andre Nalin (ReizWolf), who mentions it's an attempt to depict the landscape of the beautiful Baltic Sea island Ruegen in Second Life. Well, in my opinion he succeeded very well. 

From RL friends who visited the RL Ruegen last year I learned it's a very nice place with great beaches and the famous Ruegen Rapsol. My friends brought me some of the Ruegen Rapsol, which I used in a cool vegetarian cauliflower recipe from Ottolenghi. 

Furthermore the RL Ruegen houses the 'colossus of Prora', which is the largest hotel in the world, built just before the Second WW started by Hitler and never finished. Prora consists of 4.5 kilometer long ugly concrete appartments which were designated for 'smiling aryan people to relax and have fun, after hard work'. The buildings never housed any guests and Germany isn't happy with this heritage at all.

In Andre's profile I found this cool poem 'Heimweh nach Ruegen' by Ernst Moritz Arndt (1842):
