Lange Anna is for sure a "must" if you visit Helgoland. Nothing jaw-dropping, but the walk to get there is very nice

Although you can take a 'bus' up to the upper island most people walk and whilst not a big distance its quite arduous. The gannet colony, the spectacular cliffs all go to make this unforgettable - providing its a nice day which, fortunately the island...More
