Wattwanderung auf Borkum

The island of Borkum is the westernmost and largest of the seven East Frisian Islands with its 36 km². Because of the Gulf Stream and its location on the North Sea coast, on the island ocean there exists a climate with a particularly low pollen count and sea air containing iodine. In 2013, the North Sea Island was named Europe's first allergy-friendly island with the ECARF Seal of Quality.

In addition to the healthy Borkum air, this island offers its guests a rich culture and wellness spa. Relaxation can also be found in the famous Borkum beach tents on the 26km-long sandy beach or from strolling along the promenade.

The bandstand, with a daily Kurmusik exists as a point of attraction for the young and old. You should take a ride with Germany's oldest island railway, the "Dune Express" as this must not be missed. The colourful train will take you there from Borkum port where you will travel by stunning views of the UNESCO World Heritage-awarded Wadden Sea.
