The East Frisian islands are wonderfully strung together off the coast of Lower Saxony in the North Sea.
East Frisian vastness, a fresh, iodine- and salt-containing breeze and gorgeously long beaches characterize Borkum, Juist, Norderney, Baltrum, Langeoog, Spiekeroog and Wangerooge.
Miles of sand beaches, dunes and woods: Borkum is the biggest East Frisian island and invites to catch a breath with its nature and healthy open sea climate.
Natives call their car-free East Frisian island Juist also "Töwerland" – meaning wonderland. Those who go on expedition between dunes and sea will soon fall for the enchantment.
Besides a nature rich in variety and the beach, Norderney has historical buildings worth seeing like the conversation house, the wind mill „Selden Rüst“, the Maries height – a dune with café and a gorgeous view – and the old lighthouse.
Baltrum is the smallest of the East Frisian islands. The "Sleeping Beauty of the North Sea" consists of a west village and an east village, dune landscapes and extensive beaches; since, this island is rather something else than a sandbank.
14 kilometers of sand beach, a fabulous dune landscape and over 1,500 sunshine hours a year - this is Langeoog, the "long island".
Old chestnut trees in the city center, pines, oaks, birches and alders in the woods, dark green crowberry heath on the dunes, this is rather not expected on a North Sea island, but will be found on Spiekeroog. The neat island village is eminently pastoral due to its old houses, narrow roads and high trees.
Extensive beaches and pristine nature: vacationists find this on the island Wangerooge, which is classified as "beach resort" since 1804. The name Wangerooge derives from the Old Germanic word "Wanga" for meadow and from the Frisian word "oog" for island.
