Spiekeroog – a lush island that dreams are made of

Spiekeroog is a lush green island in the heart of the North Sea, where visitors are treated to pristine nature, vast beaches and a view of the seemingly never-ending sea. This is the perfect place to slow down the pace and recharge those internal batteries.

Sandwiched between the neighbouring islands of Langeoog and Wangerooge, Spiekeroog in the Lower Saxony Wadden Sea National Park is surprisingly green thanks to its abundance of oaks and black pines. During the summer months, the purple of lavender is added to the colour palette, whilst the sea buckthorn brings a splash of orange in the autumn. And all of this plays out in front of an ever-changing dune backdrop. The wellness treatments and clean air make the island a popular choice for health fanatics too. And why not enjoy an authentic North Sea experience? Take a boat trip to see the seal colonies, enjoy a delicious meal at a seafood restaurant or sip on a cup of East Frisian tea (complete with "Kluntje" rock sugar) in a cosy tea room.
