Langeoog – a natural paradise sandwiched between mudflats and the sea

The water tower makes for a stunning landmark on the East Frisian island of Langeoog. With the sandy beach stretching out for 14 kilometres, the dunes towering up to 20 metres tall and the meadows full of flowers, it's easy to see why this island is a popular holiday destination.

Sandwiched between mudflats and the sea and spanning some 20 square kilometres, Langeoog has always felt the full force of nature. Visitors can head to the water tower, which dates back to 1909, to enjoy stunning views of the island with its protective dunes and natural embankments. A guided tour through the mudflats of the Lower Saxony Wadden Sea National Park will allow you to get close to nature – you may even be lucky enough to spot some herring gulls. Alongside hikes, bike rides and horseback tours, a holiday on Langeoog means surfing, swimming and strolling. And the kids can happily build sandcastles on the beach. You're in for sun, sand and wind on Langeoog, no matter the season.
