The North Sea islands – holiday destinations for all

Germany's North Sea islands are blessed with gloriously long beaches and unique natural surroundings. Located in the UNESCO World Heritage Wadden Sea, the islands have a bracing climate that makes them perfect for recreational and active breaks. Fantastic accommodation, top-class cuisine and major sporting events are the icing on the cake.

The Hallig islands – peace and solitude in the coastal wetlands

Germany's Hallig islands are picturesquely dotted amongst the North Frisian islands off the North Sea coast. They offer walks on the mudflats in the heart of a World Heritage nature reserve and are havens of seclusion in harmony with the tides.

The island of Föhr is located in the north-western part of Schleswig-Holstein. The 45-minute mini-cruise from Dagebüll-Mole to Föhr, past the Hallig islands on the glistening Wadden Sea, is the ideal way to slip into holiday mode.
