Eastern Friesland Island Hopping

Borkum – Norderney – Langeoog.

The Frisian Islands have their own charme, their own character. The wide sea, the waves and beaches coin the island Borkum, Norderney and Langeoog. High‐sea climate on Borkum, the calm on Norderney and the almost car free Langeoog. Extreme is the charme of North‐Germany, extreme but cordial.

Itinerary

Welcome briefing in the early evening; afterwards you receive your rental bikes. You will have enough time to discover Emden with its harbour, the arte hall and the “Otto” house.

By ferry in two hours to the island of Borkum, biggest Eastern Friesland Island with offshore climate. Explore the island on 130 km bike paths or cycle along the 28 km long sandy beach. Relaxation pure! In the late afternoon you go back to Emden where you stay overnight again.

You cycle to picturesque fisher village Greetsiel, the biggest crab-fisher port of Weser-Ems region. Don’t pass by without having a couple of fresh shrimps. Past the bay of Ley – where you might be lucky to spot seals – you cycle to Norden.

By ferry in one hour to the island of Norderney which is the oldest health‐bath on the North Sea and has been sought after for more than 200 years by persons looking for recuperation. This island is ideally suited to be explored by bicycle. Enjoy the island, the beach‐life and National Park Wattenmeer (mud‐flats).

Along old fortresses you cycle to Dornum with its beautiful water castle and on to Bensersiel. From there you go by ferry to the island of Langeoog. Enjoy your two overnights on this car‐free island!  

Traffic jams, exhaust gases, chorus of horns – all these things you won’t find on the car-free island Langeoog, where singer Lale Andersen (Lili Marleen) used to live. Whereas unique sand dunes which are sometimes over 20 metres high, healthy air and … of course lots of opportunities for cycling, sunbathing and hiking on the beach.

Back to the mainland by ferry. From Bensersiel you cycle to Aurich, former capital of Eastern Friesland. You keep going along the Ems jade canal which leads you nearly car-free to Emden.

Tour character

Easy - Eastern Friesland and the islands are perfect areas for cycling. All routes are completely flat! You cycle mainly on asphalted or plastered country lanes, sometimes on minor roads. This tour is adequate for beginners or bike groups. All ferries with bikes are included in the price.
