Vacation rentals at the North Sea

A vacation rental on the North Sea coast

If you are looking for a vacation rental on the North Sea, you are spoilt for choice on the mainland, because in the large holiday areas around Cuxhaven, Bremerhaven, Norden and St. Peter-Ording you can enjoy the unique nature in spacious Frisian houses on the coast, move into a cosy vacation rental for two or live in a modern apartment in the centre of the larger cities. The thatched house directly behind the dike is particularly cozy and offers a fantastic view of the grazing sheep and the North Sea from the balcony.

Living in unique natural landscapes

The wildly romantic Frisian Islands a few kilometres off the coast exude a very special charm. In hardly any other place can you enjoy the rough beauty of the sea and nature as unspoilt as in a vacation rental on Borkum, Norderney, Föhr or Sylt. You will also live very idyllically in the many small villages in the hinterland in the midst of unique moorland landscapes, which invite you to extensive walks. Even more peace and quiet away from civilization is promised by a holiday apartment on Germany's only deep-sea island Helgoland, which attracts visitors with its abundance of birds and its red rock towers.

Vacation at the North Sea

Travelers and Activities

With dog at the North Sea

The North Sea offers an ideal destination for your holiday with your dog, because many of the places and islands have wide dog beaches, where your four-legged friends can romp around to their heart's content in the sand and the surf. Sylt alone already offers 17 dog beaches and is therefore known as a dog island in the North Sea. The picturesque coastal villages also present themselves as a dog paradise thanks to numerous dog-friendly accommodations with large enclosed properties as well as the pubs in which four-legged friends are also welcome guests.

The North Sea for families

For families, the North Sea coast offers an attractive range of activities to meet the needs of young and old. Relaxing in a beach chair, building sandcastles or just splashing around in the sea, all this is possible on the miles long beaches of the North Sea. A variety of cycling tours along the dikes as well as riding excursions through the green hinterland provide variety. The highlight of every trip to the North Sea is the trip on one of the numerous excursion ships, in the course of which you can take a look at the impressive harbour facilities of Bremerhaven, translate to the deep-sea island of Helgoland surrounded by waves or visit seals on their sandbanks.

Things to know

Best travel time

The climatic conditions at the North Sea are not only regarded as health-promoting, but also make the region an ideal holiday destination for most of the year. Thanks to average maximum temperatures of 18 to 20 degrees Celsius, up to eight hours of sunshine a day and 17 degrees water temperature, beach holidaymakers can book their vacation rental on the North Sea, especially for the months of July and August. If you want to explore the picturesque coastal sections on foot or the wide landscapes by bike, you can also take advantage of the months of May and June as well as September and October.

Regular events

The programme of events on the North Sea begins in March with the Crocus Flower Festival, which immerses the Husum Castle in a colourful sea of flowers. Sports are also very popular on the coast, because in addition to the Kitesurf Cup Sylt in June, the annual beach volleyball tournaments of the Smart-Beach-Tour take place on changing beaches in July. The programme of events will be complemented by culinary highlights such as the Husum Crab Days in October and the numerous maritime Christmas markets in the coastal towns, which mark the end of the event year.

The North Sea has existed in its present form for just over 11,000 years.

Top 5 travel tips for the North Sea

A hike on the seabed

If you are looking for a very special experience, a hike through the Wadden Sea World Heritage Site is just the thing for you. At low tide, walk on the seabed of the North Sea and watch out for mussels and other sea creatures from the silt that has proven itself over centuries as a skin care product. Alternatively, take part in a guided mudflat hike and reach islands such as Norderney or Baltrum dry-footed from your holiday home.

Boat trip to the seal banks

If you would like to see the elegant robbers of the North Sea up close, you can do so on a trip to the seal banks, where the animals rest in the sun from their raids. The trips, during which you will get all kinds of interesting information about the majestic animals, start in Cuxhaven and Norddeich as well as from Borkum, Baltrum and Wangerooge. Young guests are also welcome to visit one of the seal stations, where orphaned young animals are nursed.

Emigration centre in Bremerhaven

From the historical emigrant quay in Bremerhaven in 1890, around 1.2 million people set sail for North America by ship in search of a new world. Follow in the footsteps of the German emigrants in the museum complex built in 2005, where you can visit the cabins of the North American sailors as well as countless personal exhibits. During the tour you will also walk through the original wooden corridor that led the emigrants to the pier. You can also search for your ancestors in the local name databases.

German Naval Museum Wilhelmshaven

For lovers of seafaring and the navy, a visit to the German Naval Museum is part of a holiday on the North Sea, as is the obligatory fish sandwich at the harbour. In addition to the exhibition rooms, the museum also has a large museum harbour, where you can visit a speedboat of the Volksmarine, the submarine U10 of the Bundesmarine and the guided missile destroyer Mölders from inside and outside.

Culinary delicacies from the sea

The culinary offer at the North Sea is characterized by the treasures of the sea. From simple but tasty culinary delights such as a fresh matjes roll, the numerous fish restaurants offer regional specialities such as plaice, herring or fresh sea bass with a fine herb sauce. An adventure for the young holidaymakers is also the personal pickle of fresh North Sea crabs in their own apartment. Whisky connoisseurs can also enjoy the whisky produced on Sylt with the name Sylter Tide, which was matured in oak barrels in the water of the North Sea.
