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.
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.
