Helgoland is a small German island in the North Sea. It's a somewhat popular destination for one-day ship cruises. A feature of the island is the almost total absence of car traffic, which makes it a safe and quiet location.

Get in[edit]

You can reach Helgoland by boat (during winter from Cuxhaven only, in summer from numerous places) or by airplane (from Cuxhaven, Hamburg and other places). Tours are available from Cuxhaven and Hamburg.

Get around[edit]

Helgoland consists of a rather large sand stone island and a smaller island build from sand nearby. Both are worth strolling around.

One of the largest gannet breeding areas in Europe. Bring a telephoto lens! The island offers multiple photo scenes for taking pictures of Helgoland [1], especially at the crumbling rocks and shore on the north side.

Do[edit][add listing]

Visit the satellite island of Helgoland, Düne. Its beaches are very beautiful and often you can find seals lying on the sand.

Buy[edit][add listing]

Helgoland is a duty-free zone. Tobacco and alcohol may be purchased as well as electronics and other high-duty items. Keep in mind that customs officers may search through your merchandises and either stay below the limits or declare your imports.
