Blick auf die Grachten in Friedrichstadt


Discover the town of Friedrichstadt founded by Dutch settlers on the North Sea coast and be enchanted by the typical gabled houses and romantic canals. It’s not far by boat, bike or on foot to the river landscape of the Eider-Treene-Sorge and the Eiderstedt peninsula.

Grachtenweihnacht Brücke in Friedrichstadt

01. until 03.12.23 (annually 1st Advent weekend)

The small, adorable Christmas market nestled between gables and canals.

The spirit of its Dutch founders can still be felt in ‘Little Amsterdam’ today.

Experience for yourself their 400-year-old joie de vivre, culture and architecture. How about touring the town on water? The boat takes you along narrow canals, under small bridges and past the stepped, gabled houses of the Old Town. The town guides in Dutch costume will take you to the small shops in Prinzenstrasse, to the ‘Alte Münze’ museum or the historical carpentry museum. Artists in the galleries, studios and workshops also exude creativity and independence. Feel inspired by the diverse, fascinating history of the town’s religious development. Get to know places of worship for five denominations and visit the Remonstrant Church – the only one outside the Netherlands.

Fancy a little trip into the countryside? Explore the romantic river landscape of the Eider-Treene-Sorge or the North Sea peninsula of Eiderstedt on foot, by bike or on the water.
