The colours of the cliffs and the Lange Anna are spectacular. I think the best time to go is in the period from late June to early August when you can see hundreds of nesting birds (gannets) on the Lummelfelsen, and just a few steps away from you. We totally enjoyed it and took great photos!

From the town of Büsum one can sail with the ferry "Lady of Büsum" for the (2) islands of Helgoland. It's a fine ride of abt. 3 hours each way. There's the possibility to buy a nice and even cheap breakfast while setting out in the morning. The ferry will arrive abt. noon - and there are 3 hours to... More

We went to Helgoland not expecting the beauty that took over our senses! The air there is so pure that on a clear sunny day nature's colours can literally blind you with its beautiful contrasts of shades of blue, green,reds to browns & the white of the sea gulls!

When visiting the island of Helgoland, the visit of the "Lange Anna" is a must. Since there are no cars allowed on the island (and also no bikes!), you have to walk. But this walk is short and very pleasant. If you are a wheelchair user, special facilities are provided for you.Choose a sunny day for your visit in order... More

Walking around the island on a sunny day is a beautiful experience. Follow the trail all around. Along the way you will find small signs which explains the history of the island, the wildlife, and other interesting facts. You will also have fantastic views of the Düne, the rest of Helgoland, the sea surrounding the island and not least of... More

Amazing view of young birds and feeding parents on these rocks high over the Northsee in blistering winds and blue sky in late May.

The area around the upper part of Helgoland and Lange Anna, makes for great walking and sea and cliff views. Helgoland is very small, so it takes very little time to walk around it. In May and June there are a lot of sea birds to see. The highest point on the Island, Pinneberg is only 61.3 meters, so you... More
