The harbour town of Husum lies on the North Sea and is thus right at the entry to the unique UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Wadden Sea. Here you can experience the spectacle of ebb and flood tides up close. But this is not all that makes Husum so special. A great experience awaits guests in spring as this is when the famous Husum crocus blooms radiate in their new attire in front of Husum Castle.
There is scarcely a town of this size that offers a richer programme of culture and events besides attractive shopping and leisure opportunities.
The pleasant North Sea harbour town of Husum lies directly on the Wadden Sea, a unique UNESCO World Heritage Site with its fascinating islands and the Hallig tidal islands. A fresh sea breeze even wafts through the town centre.
You will love the maritime atmosphere at Husum harbour. Here, you can watch the ebb and flood tides at close quarters. Events such as the harbour and crab days and the largest Christmas market on the Schleswig-Holstein North Sea coast call Husum their home. Just like Theodor Storm back in the day. Traces of this literary ambassador can be found in several places and not just on a guided or themed tour.
Stroll through Husum’s castle park in the spring and be greeted by a sea of lilac crocuses, it creates a truly stunning view of this unique castle. Shop till you drop in this historic city setting and get to know the ’West Coast metropolis’ with its many museums and impressive cultural programme.
Picture-framing workshop in Husum
Galerie Tobien – the gilding workshop. Since being set up in 1980 by Joachim Tobien, the gallery has become a complex, stimulating centre for art, culture and handicraft.
The parkland around Husum Castle boasts paths, a playground, the Storm monument and impressive crocus blooms in March and April.
This picturesque inland harbour is a wonderful spot for strolling and observing where you can experience the interplay of ebb and flood tides right before your eyes.
Walking on the seabed or along the coastal defence route, swimming in the North Sea, lounging in a wicker beach chair – the unique UNESCO World Heritage site of the Wadden Sea is a marvellous experience just outside Husum.
Whether fresh from the fishing vessels, whether you shell it yourself or in a tasty crab sandwich from the small shop around the corner – crabs and Husum go together like the North Sea and fresh air. Incidentally: The fleet of crab fishing vessels is a popular photographic motif among holidaymakers.
