The East Frisian Coast Has Plenty to Offer

East Frisia: Extraordinary at all Times

We as East Frisians are characteristically warm-hearted, great holiday hosts and much more. The Frisian freedom describes these elusive characteristics as historical vehicle. It is reminiscent of the little Gallic village. After a spectacular victory for their warlord at that time - Charles the Great, the Frisians were granted never to be supervised by an emperor. Hence, they played a special role from then on in Germany – or what is called Germany nowadays.

The brave warriors kept proving their strength: In the battle of Norden (back then still recorded as Nordendi), the Frisians get the Vikings to beat retreat from East Frisia. The little Gallic village was alone again...

Certainly, there were headmen in East Frisia. Several centuries long, various tribes fought power struggles for supremacy. Details on ruling houses and much more will be found on Wikipedia in the category „East Frisia“.


All of East Frisia in one day: a model landscape on a scale of 1:87 of the East Frisian region is located in a large hall with an area of 1200 sq m in Leer. Villages with its sights and the East Frisian scenery with its islands and the coast are on view. In the third biggest miniature world in Germany, the whole East Frisian region can be sightseen and explored.
