Vacation rentals in Nordfriesland
North Frisia is one of the most popular holiday regions in Germany, not least because of its scenic attractions, and has a correspondingly wide range of holiday accommodation in all price categories. The offer on the mainland is particularly large in contemplative coastal places like St. Peter-Ording, Tetenbüll, Nordstrand, Husum, Dagebüll as well as Emmelbüll-Horsbüll, where you have the choice between a modern furnished apartment with sea view, a cosy holiday apartment for two and a traditional holiday house in the Frisian reed roof style. Alternatively, you can spend quiet days in the hinterland in places such as Niebüll, Friedrichstadt or Stadum.Peace and relaxation on the North Frisian Islands
If you want to relax away from the mainland, you can move into a holiday apartment or vacation rental on one of the islands directly off the coast of North Frisia. The large islands of Sylt and Föhr as well as Amrum and Pellworn are scenic and offer with their long sandy beaches ideal conditions for a bathing holiday with the whole family.
Vacation in Nordfriesland
Travelers and Activities
North Frisia is a paradise for active holidaymakers due to its varied landscape, which includes coastal sections, dunes, inland waters, moors and picturesque forests. While water rats enjoy kiting, sailing or canoeing through the hinterland, landlubbers can look forward to extensive hikes on the well-developed network of trails. Alternatively, rent a bike and explore North Frisia with the whole family from the saddle. In addition to exploring the idyllic coastal cycle path, the theme cycle path on the cultural history of the German-Danish border is particularly recommendable. The offer is supplemented by 16 varied adventure routes with a length between 14 and 43 kilometres.Holiday paradise for families
Last but not least, the endless sandy beaches make North Frisia a family paradise, especially as they invite you to dig, swim and relax. In addition, the region shines with numerous family-friendly excursion destinations such as the Leck adventure pool with its 90-meter-long giant slide, Husum Castle, the 300-square-meter model railway hall "Modellbahn-Zauber" in Friedrichstadt and the barefoot park in Neukirchen. The family offer is rounded off by the shipping museum in Husum, the large sea aquarium on Sylt as well as boat trips to the islands and the seal banks.
Things to know
In principle, North Frisia has its charms all year round. While wellness holidaymakers are drawn to the rugged coast between November and February during the winter months, the active holiday season starts towards the end of April when hikers can enjoy up to six hours of sunshine a day in the blossoming countryside. If, on the other hand, you are considering a bathing holiday, you should plan your stay for midsummer between the end of June and mid-September, especially as temperatures above 20 degrees Celsius are tempting at this time of year and the North Sea, with 18 degrees Celsius, also assumes an at least refreshing bathing temperature. Especially in the high season you should book your vacation rental as early as possible due to the high demand.
Nordfriesland lies northeast of Ostfriesland.
Top 5 travel tips
The North Frisian Wadden Sea is not a UNESCO World Heritage Site for nothing, as it is a unique natural landscape. Roll up your trouser legs and take part in a guided walk across the seabed, where you will learn all sorts of interesting facts about the inhabitants of the Wadden Sea.Hearty food from the Frisian kitchen
The North Frisian cuisine is more varied than expected and consists of fish dishes such as matjes or the obligatory fish and crab rolls at the harbour as well as hearty dishes such as kale with roast pork or the tender salt marsh lamb. You should also try the strong hot drinks like the "Pharisäer" (coffee with cream and rum), the egg grog and the "Tote Tante" (cocoa with rum and cream).Excursion to Germany's last wandering dune
What few people know is that the island of Sylt has long been characterised by shifting dunes. Today, however, these have largely disappeared. If you want to visit the last wandering dune in Germany, you will find it at the northern tip of the island near the village of List.Frisian Museum on Föhr
If you want to get to the bottom of the history of the Frisian people, which is as long as it is rich in turns, you should visit the Frisian Museum in Wyk on Föhr. The museum, which welcomes you with an archway of blue whale bones, includes a large whaling and seafaring exhibition and a cultural-historical collection, as well as a family-friendly natural history room that makes the eyes of young and old discoverers shine.Trip to Denmark
The proximity to the Danish border should definitely be used by North Frisian holidaymakers for a detour to neighbouring Denmark, as the European neighbouring country also has a lot to offer in terms of sightseeing and excursion destinations. For families, a trip to Legoland near Billund is the best option.
