Heligoland, island on the high seas
60 km off Germany's North Sea coast lies Heligoland. For decades now, guests from all directions have been coming to this unique island to enjoy the unusual landscape and the peace and quiet. Pristine red rocks, a white sandy beach on the dune, blue-green sea and unspoiled nature with rare seabirds make up the special charm of Heligoland. Holidaymakers and day visitors can also stroll along the maritime mile, visit the colourful lobster stands, enjoy Heligoland specialities in the numerous restaurants or marvel at pictures and handcrafts by the island artists.
