Dornum - The seclusion this resort offers will provide the ideal escape from city life.
Location: A tranquil idyll with lots to offer.
The village affords a wonderful position on the North Sea coast in East Frisia in Lower Saxony. It is situated on the Wadden Sea, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and forms part of the North Sea. There are miles and miles of coastland to enjoy. The Wadden Sea is a habitat for seals and migrating birds. There are long stretches of soft, sandy beaches and cliffs, which harbor a unique variety of plant and animal life.
Culture: Discover the interesting, rich maritime heritage
Visit the Lutheran St Bartholomaeus Church situated in the heart of the old village. The Baroque Norder Castle can also be found in the historic center. Now a school, it is possible to stroll along the castle bailey and discover its portals and pediments from the outside. There are a variety of interesting museums. The Fram Workers' museum showcases how the rural population used to live. The Two-Sluices museum displays the history of shipbuilding and shipping in the town. And finally, the Granny Freese Huus, the local history museum, is a fine example of a small village dwelling in the 1850s. Now, fully restored, you can even hold your wedding or other event here if you wish.
Activities: Peace and quiet, fun, and frolics. It has it all.
This peaceful haven still provides plenty of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors with many activities on offer. Try canoeing or paddle boating or for real adrenaline junkies, kitesurfing. Enjoy miles of coastal paths on foot or by bike. Climb the 297 steps of the 65-meter high turbine on the Holt Riemer path, which affords spectacular panoramic views of the whole of East Frisia. When the tide is out, indulge in some bare foot walking along the mud flats on the seabed. There are miles of easily accessible routes and 2 1/2 hour tours for mud flat hikers to enjoy.
