Wangerooge is a health resort and spa in the North Sea. Situated at the heart of Lower Saxony Wadden Sea National Park, the island's landscape features beaches, dunes and salt marshes. Tourists can rest assured that relaxation is par for the course here.

Wangerooge is the second smallest of the seven East Frisian islands and the most easterly of them all. There are no cars on the island, which can be explored on a boat at the harbour or on a train at the village train station, with the railway dating back more than 100 years. The long beach is dotted with brightly coloured beach chairs for relaxing during the summer months and there are plenty of shops, hotels and restaurants to check out, too. The island is ideal for families, active tourists and anyone looking to relax. Take your pick from beach volleyball, windsurfing, sandcastle building or health and wellness treatments at the spa facilities, where visitors can recharge their batteries and restore their inner peace.
