However, more than ten people may not belong to the wedding party.
In general, there is a lot to discover and experience for children apart from the large sandpit on the coast. Events regularly provide a children’s program and family fun. The island also offers accommodation options for everyone, from luxury hotels with a wellness area to camping sites with shared showers. There is also variety on the beach sections: kite surfing, diving and jet skiing are among the most popular activities among holidaymakers on the Baltic Sea island.
Nature is also very important on Föhr. The Wadden Sea is at the forefront of guided hikes in the mudflats or walks on the seabed. While you stroll along the beach or on the promenade of the small harbor town Wyk, the wind provides a fresh breeze. That promises relaxation for the whole family. 16 hamlets and the "Island capital" Wyk alone are 17 excursion destinations, the sights include the 100-year-old spa park, five mills and of course the 15 kilometer long beach.
4. Hallig Hooge
At high tide is on the so-called Halligen "Land under" then these particular islands are flooded. Only artificial heaped hills rise above the water, on which the houses for residents and visitors stand. The Hallig Hooge is the second largest Hallig in the Schleswig-Holstein Wadden Sea National Park, despite its size of only 5.6 square kilometers. On the small island there are nine mounds of earth (called terps), on which the few residents and visitors can enjoy the sound of the sea and the screeching of seagulls, protected from the storm surges. Hooge is car-free, you can get around here on foot or by bike. Wadden hikes are part of it, as well as a boat trip or bird watching in the Hooge biosphere area.
Germany’s most unusual island, Helgoland, which is around 70 kilometers from the mainland and only one square kilometer in size, seems a bit lonely. But with the first rays of sun this changes suddenly. Regardless of whether the tourists head for Heligoland by ship, catamaran or plane, the first eye-catchers are always the colorful lobster booths on the promenade, which once served as fishing tool sheds. In the meantime, the colorful houses have blossomed into small galleries, shops and pubs. Driving is taboo. Only here and there does one of the 120 electric cars roll through the streets. At the outermost tip of the island is the narrow, red rock "Long Anna": The Heligoland landmark was cut off in 1860 during a storm surge.
It is the only real island in the German Baltic Sea: Hiddensee can only be reached by ship. 18 kilometers long and shaped like a seahorse "dat soete Länneken" off Ruegen’s coast. The small ferry is only used for the garbage truck, because Hiddensee is car-free. Two tire-wide concrete slab tracks in the heathland between Kloster and Vitte, that is the entire road network. Horse-drawn vehicles take over the transport of the luggage. In the 1920s, Gerhart Hauptmann and Albert Einstein let the sea breeze blow around their noses here. Today, well-paying nature lovers prefer to come. You cycle in the dune heather between wild orchids and thyme, the sea eagle circles above the 70 meter high thorn bush hill: the whole of Hiddensee is a national park.
Ten Halligen belong to the North Frisian Islands, Langeness is the largest of them. Its elongated shape gave the Hallig its name "Long nose". 18 terps rise up on the ten kilometer long and 1.4 kilometer wide island. The Hallig has only about 100 inhabitants and is only connected to the mainland by a wagon train through the mudflats. Getting there is already an experience. There is one thing to see above all on Langeneß: the wide horizon. The most outstanding point on the island is the 11.5 meter high lighthouse on Peterswarft.
8. North Beach
The seaside spa in the Schleswig-Holstein Wadden Sea is based on a stimulating climate and North Sea air. Far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, this is a lure "green heart of the wadden sea" with mud packs and a sea water bubble bath for cure and wellbeing. Nordstrand is connected to the mainland via its evergreen North Sea dike. The 50 square kilometer peninsula is manageable and easy to explore. You should still take your time to visit the churches, farms, mills and a museum. Day-trippers usually just sit down in the café for coffee and enjoy the fresh breeze, while others take a horse-drawn carriage ride across the mudflats to blow the rough North Sea wind around their noses and just relax.
Surrounded by an eight meter high and 25 kilometer long dike, the North Frisian island of Pellworm protects itself from the storm surges of the rough North Sea. The seventh largest island in the republic was created due to such a storm surge. This put the island of Strand under water in 1634 and left only fragments – some of today’s Halligen, Nordstrand and Pellworm. Pellworm is a North Sea spa. In addition to the pleasant maritime climate and the vastness of the mudflats, those looking for relaxation can get on their bikes or explore the island on foot. You are sure to come across the Pellworm lighthouse from 1906 in the south of the island, which can not only be visited, but is also available as a wedding chapel. More than ten people may not belong to the wedding party.
Peninsulas and inland lakes, beech forests and surging wheat: Rügen is much bigger than the landlubber imagines. To be more precise, it is the largest German island. The island of 926 square kilometers is located off the Pomeranian Baltic coast. The important seaside resorts are close together in the south. In Binz, wonderful villas with the typical carved wooden verandas shine like new, the great sandy beach is child-friendly, flat and 70 meters wide. There is a lot to see on Rügen: Putbus, the melancholy residence of Prince Malte, is of course best visited by small steam train "Raging Roland". On foot or in the Krems coach you can go to the Granitz hunting lodge with the famous wrought-iron staircase – only for those with a head for heights! And it’s a good half hour’s drive to Cape Arkona. Tip: The chalk cliffs shine most beautifully early in the morning.
Spiekeroog, around ten kilometers long and no more than 2.5 kilometers wide, with an area of 18 square kilometers, is significantly larger than the neighboring island of Wangerooge. But if Wangerooge is the ideal destination for a quiet family vacation, then Spiekeroog can easily surpass that: there are just 820 islanders, which is pretty little even for the East Frisian islands. There are 3,500 beds available for guests – most of them in holiday apartments. The most beautiful thing about the island is the landscape: there are many hiking trails in the uninhabited east of the island. The "Ostplate" is under nature protection. Many seabirds breed there – and the seals come to sunbathe. The relatively new Wittbülten environmental center provides information on ecology. A sperm whale skeleton can be seen there, and there are show aquariums with explanations of the Wadden Sea habitat, including a petting pool with starfish and oysters. With the White Dune and its 24 meters height, Spiekeroog also offers the largest natural elevation in East Friesland – or, as the residents like to say: the "highest mountain in East Frisia". Otherwise there is a lot of forest there. This is thanks to a chief forestry director from Hanover, who came as a guest and in 1862 laid out a small wood of pine, birch and oak. The islanders followed suit – today the island is extremely green, and even long-eared owls are native here.
A glass of champagne in front of the trendy pub "Garden garden" sip, park the Porsche in front of your own thatched roof house and dance pony in the in-disco in the evening: Sylt cannot and does not want to lose its reputation as a celebrity and high-price island. After all, visiting well-known personalities has a long tradition on the island. It all started with Queen Elisabeth of Romania, who moved into Westerland in 1888. Theodor Storm, Marlene Dietrich, Beate Uhse and Roland Kaiser followed later. Today Sylt is more popular than ever. A cycle path network of over 200 kilometers runs through the island. Due to the flat landscape, children can also have fun on a tour and can easily cycle longer distances. The island is known for its dunes and sandy beaches. But what would Sylt be without its small, fine villages? Each has its own character and a detour to shop, feast or go for a walk is worthwhile. Westerland, for example, can score with its old district in the east. The village church "St. Niels" is pretty to look at. Keitum is the Frisian village par excellence, the Königshafen awaits you in List and the famous Rote Kliff in Kampen is a must for every visitor.
A jump into that "Berlin’s bathtub": Right behind the longest beach in the Baltic Sea – it measures 38 kilometers – well-fed cows graze on lush meadows. Nowhere are the seaside resort and farming village so close together as on Usedom. The island, which is characterized by hills, forests and inland lakes, measures 445 square kilometers – the German portion is 373, while the remaining 72 square kilometers belong to Poland. A touch of the old splendor can be felt again in the imperial baths Heringsdorf and Ahlbeck; things have always been a bit finer here. The main attraction of the many day trippers is the Ahlbeck pier: a wooden castle on the water. Water rats share the beach, which is up to 80 meters wide, with colorful fishing boats. The most popular excursion is to Poland. The neighboring country begins less than two kilometers away – and that’s where the German coast comes to an end.
