Wattenmeer auf Spiekeroog

The North Sea island of Spiekeroog has been a certified North Sea thalassotherapy Spa since June 2015. It is called the "Green Island" in the North Sea because of its many trees. Small forests with rich flora and fauna, vast salt marshes, and the 14 km long sandy beach awaits your discovery. The highest elevation of East Frisia, the White Dune "Wittdün", is also on Spiekeroog.

The Horse Rail (Pferdebahn) Museum is something very special on this North Sea Island. The only railway that is still pulled by horses in Germany today. On a historical route, you drive by the former railway station to the West End and back if you want. The journey with the horse tram is approximately 12 minutes.

In any tour of the Spiekeroog island, you should have a look at the ancient Island church which was built as early as the late 17th century, and enjoy the view on the dune with the bronze statue "de Utkieker".
