Sights of northern Germany on the Schleswig Holstein map. Most of the attractions of this region are related to the beaches and nature. The North Sea and the Baltic Sea have their own different characters. But there are also old towns, open-air museums, interesting technical buildings here – everything for a relaxing and interesting vacation.
Cuxhaven. 1. Center
If someone wants to properly swim in the sea, perhaps you are not right in Cuxhaven. When the tide comes, the dragons guarding the beach entrance (you must pay) even leave their posts. Because the main attraction in the German North Sea is the Watt.
Cuxhaven Döse and Duhnen
In the previous topic, it was said about what is to the right of Kugelbake, now let’s go left – to Döse and Duhnen. The Elbe already ends here, this is the coast of the North Sea.
And the further we move from the center and the Elbe, the watt is more pleasant, the water is cleaner, the coast is not so littered with algae, bird feathers and small jellyfish. Apparently, the proximity of the fairway near Kugelbake allows all these pieces to get to the coast.
Sahlenburg is a tourist village, a bit away from Cuxhaven in the direction of Bremerhaven. It did not extend along the sea, but perpendicular to it. Even in the high season it is easier to find accommodation here, there is also a large camping. This area is “pure nature”: clean beach, pine forest, moorland. As well as its outdoor pool, several riding stables and a rope park.
From here it is only about 10 km to the island of Neuwerk (on foot or by carriage).
North sea Germany vacation. Things to do
The North Sea in this part is called Wattenmeer. This is such a sea-swamp – the ebb tide goes far, leaving a minimum amount of water and the ability to walk on the sand for kilometers. With its soothing blue landscape, the Wadden Sea will provide you with the ultimate escape from reality. I have never seen a more relaxing place. However, there is also something to see here.
Bremerhaven attractions are purely boyish fun. Port, ships, ships, port, gateway, another gateway, drawbridge…
Travemünde – what to do
Travemünde has been began its history since the end of the 12th century and almost immediately fell under the control of Lübeck. It is still a district of the city, although it is located 14 kilometers from it. It is a ferry port, but not only. It has also been a seaside resort since the early 19th century. True, I would not call this resort pleasant and cozy.
