The municipality of Wangerland has existed in its present form since 1972, when 6 communities—Hohenkirchen, Hooksiel, Minsen Förrien, Horumersiel-Schillig, Tettens, and Waddewarden joined together. It is the northernmost point of the administrative district of Friesland, with approximately 10,200 inhabitants and it is predominantly rural. In recent years, it has become an increasingly important tourist destination, with kilometres-long stretches of white sandy beaches, a well-developed network of cycling paths, and easy-to-reach towns and villages in the region that draw in thousands of holidaymakers each year. From Wangerland, the ferry ports with passage to the East Frisian Islands as well as larger towns like Wilhelmshaven or Wittmund are just a stone’s throw away, making the area a preferred destination for those who want to combine lazing on the beach with sightseeing and city tours.

Location: A coastal spot with wide open spaces

Wangerland borders the North Sea to the north and east, the town of Wittmund, and to the west, south, and south-east, the towns of Jever, Schortens, and Wilhelmshaven (approximately 20 kilometres away). Its seat is in the village Hohenkirchen. It is on the A29 motorway, and there are several bus and train connections.

Business: Tourism is booming!

Wangerland is becoming increasingly popular with tourists wishing to escape the humdrum of everyday life, and experience the wild beauty of the North Sea coast. There are now over 1.8 million overnight stays annually. With uncountable hotels, pensions, and camp grounds catering to all needs.

Culture: Discover the history of the coast

Art-lovers should visit the Künstlerhaus in Hooksiel to view a range of exhibitions from photography to portraits. Find out more about the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Wadden Sea at the Nordseehaus Wangerland in Minsen, or visit the village of Ziallerns, one of the best-preserved terp villages on the North German coast. Terps are artificial dwelling mounds, which were created to provide safe ground during flooding

Activities: Fun for all the family

Visit the North Sea spa town of Horumersiel-Schillig, an award-winning family holiday destination. It was named Germany's first official bathing beach in 1860, and it is unsurprising that it is still one of Germany's most popular tourist destinations. Learn to surf, sail, or water-ski in Hooksiel. Explore the beaches of Minsen-Förrien, or hire a bike and make the most of the network of over 200 kilometres of cycle paths. A ride with the Watt’n Express tourist train gives a good overview of the region, leading along different routes.
