Frisian Islands

© noheadimg

The Frisian Islands lie off Germany's northwester coast. The area is divided into two national parks, the Schleswig-Holsteinisches Wattenmeer-Nationalpark and the Niedersächsisches Wattenmeer-Nationalpark, to protect the sensitive eco-system and its sand dunes. It is strictly prohibited to enter areas that are fenced off. Most people come to the islands' beaches to enjoy the sun, the sea and the fresh air.

The busiest of the Frisian Islands is Sylt, that can only be entered by train. A railway line on a causeway connects the island with the mainland. If you prefer quite beaches, don't go to Sylt, as it is absolutely packed with tourists. The islands of Föhr or Amrum are much better alternatives. They are quieter and can be explored on horseback or by bicycle. Heligoland is much further out to sea. It was a submarine base during WWII and the bunkers and underground tunnels can still be visited. Excursions to the island are available and usually last two days.
