Pellworm – a North Sea haven in the middle of the mudflats

The North Frisian island of Pellworm is situated in the heart of the Schleswig-Holstein Wadden Sea National Park. Pristine beauty, peaceful tranquillity and plenty of sunshine make this island a hidden gem for anyone in need of a little rest and relaxation.

This vast island in the North Sea spans 37 square kilometres and life here is very much ruled by the tides. If the ebb and flow of the sea allows it, visitors can set off on a tour to explore the mudflats, walking past mussels, lugworms and crabs on their way to the neighbouring Halligen islands. Holidaymakers can feel truly at home here, with the down-to-earth attitude and warm welcome from the locals, the rural charm of Pellworm itself and the overriding sense of peace and quiet leaving visitors to breathe easy. It's hard not to fall in love with the island, which just so happens to be a romantic location itself. Couples can get married at the lighthouse in Pellworm, with a traditional captain's ceremony to round off proceedings.
