Beaches

Mussels, the call of seagulls and water as far as the eye can see

For most people, just thinking about this is enough to trigger a deep longing to escape from the daily grind. Relax in a beach chair, immerse yourself in your favourite book while the little ones get busy building sandcastles. Unspoiled natural beaches, dune paradises, dramatic cliffs and the endless expanse of the Wadden Sea. What's it to be: the gentle Baltic Sea or the windswept North Sea?

With its beaches and the romantic lake landscape of Holstein Switzerland, the Baltic coast has the perfect beach to suit every taste. Along the coastline of the North Sea and the islands you’re bound to find your perfect beach. Want fine sandy beaches that extend for kilometres? You’ll find these on the islands of Amrum, Föhr and Sylt, or in St. Peter-Ording.
