The environment

The Wadden Sea National Park - a World Heritage Site since 2009 - offers its visitors a fascinating insight into the mudflat ecosystem. The species-rich animal and plant world is unique and a guided mudflat hike is therefore a "must do". It is offered by local mudflat guides directly behind the dike.

An ornithological excursion with the Nabu or a visit to the nature conservation center in Katinger Watt is also highly recommended. There is a "Garden of the Senses", lectures about the Wadden Sea, exciting events for children and - while you're there - around the corner the best eggnog on the coast.

You can enjoy the fresh sea air directly behind the sea dyke, a good one kilometer away. The way there leads by bike or on foot through the diked foreland, the so-called Koog. From here you continue on the North Sea hiking trail: south towards Büsum (10 km) and north to the miles of sandy beaches in St. Peter-Ording (22 km), past sheep and countless wading birds resting on the salt marshes do. Small, green bathing beaches near by bikes invite you to go hiking on the mudflats at low tide and to swim at high tide.

There are also excursions to the sights in the area: a boat trip to the Halligen and islands, the west coast animal park in St. Peter-Ording, the Multimar Wattforum in Tönning, the Dutch town of Friedrichstadt, the Noldemuseum in Niebüll, the Stormhaus in Husum, the Hebbel Museum in Wesselburen and the Brahmshaus in Heide.

Wellness offers:
A rustic barrel sauna is available to our guests for relaxation. Ayurvedic massages can be booked in advance directly with Dagmar Dührsen, subject to availability, other treatments such as hot stones at Vitamaris in Büsum. There are public saunas in Wesselburen, Heide and Büsum. The Dünentherme in St. Peter-Ording is highly recommended because, as the name suggests, it is located between the dunes with a fantastic view over the Wadden Sea. The nearest outdoor pool is in Wesselburen, indoor pools are in Heide, Büsum and St. Peter-Ording.
