Strand auf Baltrum

Baltrum is just 5km long and 1.5km wide. The smallest of the East Frisian Islands is well known as "the Island of short distances".

Street names do not exist on the North Sea island of Baltrum. Only house numbers were assigned in chronological order according to their year of construction.

Despite the lovingly applied nickname of the "Sleeping Beauty", the island is quite beautifully awoken: Water sports enthusiasts will find a fantastic kite and surfing area on Baltrum. Even canoeists and stand-up paddlers get their money's worth in the choppy waves of the North Sea.

At the riding stables at "Ponte Rosa", visitors have the opportunity to explore this North Sea island with horse or carriage.
