Your North Sea camping weekend can look like this
“Moin, moin”, they say in the north and not only in the early hours. But this doesn’t mean that the North Sea coast is home to sleeping caps. Between some strange-looking traditions such as broom throwing and “boßeln”, Borkum, Norderney, Sylt and co. offer a wide range of activities, including cycling, surfing and sailing. Those who first want to get an overview of the UNESCO World Heritage Wadden Sea before putting their toes into the grey mud, can take a scenic flight over it. For this, there are different providers at various places. If you want to get started right away, explore the North Sea coast in four days with our tips.
Day 1: Action in St. Peter Ording
St. Peter Ording is a perfect place for families as well as for young globetrotters. Here everything revolves around water sports – from SUP to windsurfing and kiting. In addition, a special highlight for the little camping friends is the seal enclosure in the West Coast Park. Next to a small seal show, the cute button eyes are also fed in public twice a day.
Day 2: Live like a star
Anyone who wants to join the ranks of stars and starlets should not miss a trip to Sylt – Here, the Who-is-Who of the celebrity world meets between champagne corks and sea breezes. With 850,000 guests a year, you can also party hard: During the day, you can relax with algae wellness treatments and have a professional chat with golf, tennis or horseback riding. At night you can go to the hottest beach parties or exclusive sport events. Indeed, on Sylt you can live and sip one or two oysters. By the way, an absolute must is a walk over the Whiskey mile and a visit of the cult restaurant in the dunes – The Sansibar.
Day 3: The “most beautiful heap of sand in the world”
Pardon? Well, the “most beautiful heap of sand” – That’s how the inhabitants call Borkum, the largest East Frisian island in the middle of the Lower Saxony Wadden Sea National Park. Here, everything revolves around fun in the sand – Whether sailing on the beach, driving a beach buggy or playing beach volleyball. In summer, you’ll see over 800 teams playing ball games on the beach. Seals can also be seen on Borkum, for example on the High Reef seal bank. Last but not least, romantic sea lovers can enjoy the best sunsets next to the music pavilion on the north beach.
Day 4: Digging and climbing
The second largest East Frisian Island is sandy as well: With its white sandy beaches, Norderney is a paradise for water birds and migratory birds on their travels. Patient observers definitely get their money’s worth here. All the others will appreciate almost Caribbean beaches – And not only the little ones like bathing and digging at the beach. The most famous landmarks of the “city by the sea” are Norderneys windmills and the brick-red lighthouse. Whoever looks for an alternation to the beach, you can let off steam on the free indoor and outdoor play park Cape Horn – It’s fun for kids and relaxation for adults.
