80th North Sea Week on Heligoland

From 6 to 9 June 2014 countless sails will be hoisted in the waters around Heligoland for North Sea Week (Nordseewoche), now in its 80th year. Around 1,500 sailing enthusiasts travel to Germany's only remote offshore island to seek victory in the regatta and entertain the crowds. North Sea Week is one of the biggest regatta events in Germany and the only one to take place out on the high seas.

Heligoland is an ideal destination for health and wellness, thanks not only to the mild maritime climate and the virtually pollen-free North Sea air, but also because the island is car-free so there are no emissions.
