Holiday apartment on the North Sea islands

Holidays off the coast of Germany

If you don't want to spend your bathing holiday in Germany on the mainland, you will certainly find a spacious vacation rental or a cosy holiday apartment on the offshore East Frisian and North Frisian islands. Thanks not least to the mild maritime climate, the endless sandy beaches and the numerous hours of sunshine, islands such as Sylt, Föhr, Amrum, Borkum, Juist, Langeoog and Baltrum offer a wide range of accommodation in all price ranges. In addition to these hot spots of island tourism, holidays on the less frequented North Sea islands of Spiekeroog, Wangerooge, Pellworm and Nordstrand are also highly recommended for those seeking peace and quiet and nature lovers.

Holidays on the North Sea Islands

Location and orientation

Journey to the North Sea Islands

If you want to get to your vacation rental on one of the North Sea islands, you can usually not do this directly via a land connection by car or train. Only the journey to Sylt can be made by train. All other islands of the North Frisian and East Frisian archipelago are best reached by ferry from the mainland's major ferry ports. The crossing to the islands usually takes between 30 and 90 minutes. If you arrive with your own vehicle, it is advisable to park it in a guarded car park on the mainland, especially as motor traffic on the North Sea islands is either severely restricted or even completely prohibited for private individuals, especially in the high season. However, if you would like to travel by car, it is important to book the transfer in advance to avoid unnecessary waiting times at the ferry port.

Locomotion on site

On the larger North Sea islands, it is also common for tourists to drive their own vehicles. However, the public transport network on all islands without exception is so well developed that at least one motor vehicle does not have to be brought along. Alternatively, it is of course possible to book a rental car for longer tours. The main means of transport on most North Sea islands, however, is the bicycle, as the distances to be covered are usually very manageable. On Spiekeroog even the bicycle traffic is strongly restricted among other things for environmental protection reasons. Cycling is not forbidden there, but the mainland does not necessarily like to see the crossing by bicycle. Spiekeroog thus takes on a special role and attracts above all holidaymakers who are looking for absolute deceleration.

Things to know

Best travel time

For nature lovers who would like to get to know the wild and romantic side of the German North Sea islands, the travel season begins in the spring months of March and April and extends far into October. On the other hand, those who travel with their children or book their apartment for a beach holiday should consider the high summer months between the end of June and the beginning of September. At this time, up to 8 hours of sunshine and average maximum temperatures above the 20 degree mark ensure that the water around the islands reaches a temperature suitable for bathing of around 18 degrees Celsius.

The East Frisian North Sea Islands lie southwest of the North Frisian North Sea Islands.

Top 5 travel tips

Hikes in the Wadden Sea

A holiday at the North Sea should of course not be without one thing - the mudflat hike. You have the choice whether you want to go on your own to the Wadden Sea UNESCO World Heritage Site with your trouser legs rolled up or whether you want to take part in a guided tour where you will learn all kinds of interesting facts about the inhabitants of the Wadden Sea.

By ship to the seal banks

Seals are almost like the mascots of the North Sea islands. Why don't you pay these cute little animals a visit to the sandbanks, where they like to let the sun burn on their fur, especially at low tide? As a rule, the corresponding excursion ships depart daily for the trips lasting several hours.

Fresh fish on the table

No matter whether a portion of shrimps directly fresh from the cutter or the obligatory fish roll at the harbour festival, fish and seafood are part of a holiday on the North Sea islands like the "Moin" to welcome you. Apart from these delicacies, it is also worth visiting one of the many excellent fish restaurants, where specialities such as plaice, cod and herring are served in a variety of ways.

Trip to Germany's only offshore island

A boat trip to the German deep-sea island of Helgoland is not only highly recommended because of the attractive duty-free shopping, but also because of sights such as the world-famous Buntsandstein rock "Lange Anna".

Germany's last drifting dune

You can admire a true unicum on Sylt, because on Germany's largest North Sea island there is the last shifting dune of the country near the place Listland. In an "international comparison" it moves comparatively slowly with only five to seven metres per year and is now protected by elaborate measures.
