The most beautiful way to Heligoland

is via Brunsbüttel

Horizons literally open up in Brunsbüttel: wide open spaces as far as the eye can see. In the triangle between the North Sea, the Elbe and the Kiel Canal, you can watch the big ships and simply relax. The "Halunder Jet" now also docks at the port and lock town of Brunsbüttel, which invites its guests to linger and take a deep breath. From here, the journey continues to the high seas island of Heligoland with its red rocks, white beaches and surrounded by the blue-green sea.

Heligoland, island on the high seas

Heligoland, Germany's only high seas island, lies in the middle of the North Sea. The unspoiled, unique red rocks, the white sand of the bathing dune, the blue-green sea all around and the unspoiled nature with its rare seabirds have been attracting visitors from all directions for decades. It is simply fun to stroll along the maritime mile, visit the colorful lobster stalls, marvel at the paintings and handicrafts of the island artists or enjoy Heligoland specialties in the numerous restaurants.
