12. Min­sen­er Oog

A natural beauty spot in the middle of the North Sea: the uninhabited island of Minsener Oog. Surrounded by deep blue water and numerous sandbanks, this unspoilt island is an important breeding site for seabirds. The only way to reach Minsener Oog is on foot across the mudflats from Schillig, although the emphasis here is on nature conservation, so access is prohibited except for a small area of the island.
