Norden & Norddeich - Heart of East Frisia

Gode Tied - Meaning 'a Good Time' - in East Frisia

Norddeich-Mole especially known as ferry dock is the last destination for all island travellers who have already driven lots of kilometers, while looking for the sea. However, Norddeich is besides the ferry docks known as unhurried holiday resort for all vacationists. Families will have recreational fun; as well as, couples looking for relaxation of their everyday working life will find time as pair.

Written hyphenated but they are still two different places: Norden and Norddeich. While, brick buildings are characterizing for both places, Norden is said to be the oldest town in East Frisia and Norddeich is one of the youngest. In 1255 Norden was initially mentioned and Norddeich not until 1803.

Walks through both villages are showing the differences in character: One is Frisian-medieval and the other fresh and modern. Both of them are unhurried and natural. Do not forget to plan a visit at the fascinating museums and mills; as well as, the enchanting castles and parks of the surrounding area to complete your vacation. For instance, the tea museum – as expected – is worth visiting. Here, you will discover the linking between being Frisian and drinking a deliciously brewed tea and how to enjoy it. This traditional topic contrasts with other tourist attractions as the golf facility or some musical events, which is more exciting than it is expected.

A trip to the islands Norderney and Juist should be also one of your to do’s. Every single island has its own charm and is worth discovering.

For those, who prefer to stay at the mainland, are advised that day trips to each island are sufficient. All things worth seeing can be done within a day; afterwards, you can turn back to the comfortable Hotel Fährhaus and enjoy the freedom of the continent.

Of course, we, in the Hotel Fährhaus, are your counterpart to all questions about touristic attractions in the surrounding and other things to know. We gladly assist you organizing your trips, lend bikes or sticks for Nordic Walking and much more.
