The car-free environment on the island of Heligoland ('Helgoland' in German) makes it the ideal destination for health and wellness holidays. Helgoland is well connected with Germany, with regular ferries arriving from Büsum, Hamburg, Cuxhaven, Bremerhaven and Wilhelmshaven. Wherever you depart from, visitors can't help but be amazed on arrival at the red cliffs that make up the island.
The fresh, virtually pollen-free air in Heligoland and mild sea climate make it a truly relaxing experience. The many trails across the island can guide visitors through the island's array of flora and fauna, to Lummenfelsen ─ the world's smallest conservation area.
The island’s museum can also give visitors a taste of its history and culture ─ or, get closer to the culture with a trip to the fishermen's houses in the harbour. A heritage listed site, visitors can try a world-famous, locally caught delicacy ─ Heligoland lobster.
