With its handful of inhabitants, the Hallig island of Gröde is the smallest municipality in Germany. But there's still plenty of space on the island for long, rambling walks in the bracing North Sea air. If you want to do more than simply relax, you can spend time fishing, walking on the mudflats or swimming in the sea – water is, after all, everywhere around you. Pleasure boats and therefore holidaymakers as well are only able to reach the island during the brief period of high tide. This unparalleled isolation is what distinguishes Gröde from the surrounding Hallig islands.
