East Frisian Islands


Endless expanses, fascinating, untouched landscapes with unique flora and fauna, healthy air and sandy beaches inviting you to relax and unwind. Welcome to the East Frisian Islands, where you can feel tension melt away from the moment you arrive.  The chain of German islands belonging to the Lower Saxon Wadden Sea National Park extends over an area of ninety kilometres off the Lower Saxon North Sea coast and attracts visitors year-round to the holiday destination Lower Saxony. Planning a family holiday, some time away with friends or a romantic break? Looking for relaxation, sports activities or simply interested in nature? The North Sea islands offer something to suit every taste.

The islands of Norderney, Langeoog, Borkum, Juist, Wangerooge, Spiekeroog and Baltrum have many similarities but also many differences. Each holiday island has its own individual charm. Read on to find out more about their distinctive features and the kind of experience you can expect on each one, as well as information on accommodation, events and ferry services. And if you can't narrow your choice down to one East Frisian island, an island-hopping break is the ideal solution. We wish you a relaxing North Sea holiday!
