North Sea

Cycle rides along the beautiful coastline, long walks along the dike, hikes along the vast tidal mudflats – on the North Sea coast of Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony), your body will practically crave intensive exercise in the fresh salty air. But don’t worry, you don’t have to exert yourself to feel instantly revitalised!

A walk along the tidal mudflats of the Wadden Sea UNESCO World Heritage Site comes highly recommended, as it is the perfect opportunity to unwind that you would expect from a holiday on Niedersachsen’s coast.
An unbelievable tranquillity prevails here, where the North Sea gives way to the tidal mudflats, making it a wonderful place to sharpen the senses.

Tourists can also hear the soft squelching noise of what experts claim to be the tiny feet of washed-up mussels digging their way back underground.

The bike tours past historic manors, impressive lighthouses and old mills lining the route like a string of pearls – which all seasoned mountain bikers are sure to appreciate - are varied and popular with all age groups. White- and- green signposts guide the way to the next picturesque village or little harbour, where you can gather your strength with some bread rolls and generous portions of fish or shrimp. And with the wind on your back to push you along, you inevitably get the feeling of having not only travelled but also truly experienced Niedersachsen’s North Sea coast.
