Help with respiratory ailments

The high salinity is a balm for people with asthma and other respiratory ailments. A stay on Heligoland also promises relief from colds. The bracing climate deepens respiratory activity and strengthens the immune system. As a recognised North Sea spa, Heligoland offers numerous spa treatments.

Bland climate

Fig trees and palm trees in Schleswig-Holstein? Yes, but only on Heligoland! The North Sea, warmed by the Gulf Stream, gives the island extremely bland temperatures and an almost Mediterranean climate. Ideal conditions for a day on the bathing dune.

Rest on prescription

Heligoland is a recognised North Sea spa. The rich offer of therapy and wellness services such as massages, treatments with sea silt, swimming in the seawater pool or sauna sessions as well as the island's medical infrastructure are ideal for outpatient cures.

Clean fresh air and starry sky

It's also a breath of fresh air for the eyes. Where there are no skyscrapers, smog and highways, you can look out into nature, far and undisturbed. Especially in the dark, the absence of disturbing light sources from headlights and street lamps is noticeable - when looking up at the breathtaking starry sky.
