Langeoog

Reviewed By ChristophStempel - Reinbek, Germany

Langeoog is one of the seven East-Frisian Islands. It offers a car-free, relaxing and informal environment, 9 miles of unspoiled natural sandy beach, a nice little town and just enough activities to be not boring at all. You will have to take the ferry from the tiny Mainland port of Bensersiel. The passage is sheltered and the ferry is very sturdy, so don't be afraid of sea-sickness. The ferry ticket includes the train ride from the harbour to the little town, where you will claim your checked-in baggage (or hire a porter to take care of the baggage), if you are going to stay for a longer holiday. There are horse-drawn coaches waiting at the station to get you to your accomodation or you can just walk.
Everything is in easy walking distance.
The only cars in the island are small electric Delivery vans. Everybody moves around on bicycles, which can be hired locally.
There is an abundance of nature. Take long walks along the beach or in the dunes. Destinations include the "Meierei", a small and very basic inn at the eastern end of the island, the "Strandhalle" restaurant with panoramic views of the North Sea, the lifeboat-lookout the "Dünenfriedhof" (scenic cemetery with the grave of Lale Andersen, singer of "Lili Marleen" - fame) or the harbour with its small marina and café. There is also an indoor swimming-pool, sporting activities on the beach and, if you are not afraid of water temperatures around 20°C you can take a refreshing bath in the North Sea (always during the times, when the tide is rising as there is a strong outward current otherwise. Only use the supervised sections along the beach).
Accomodation is mostly in self-catering appartments or cottages. There are a couple of Hotels as well. Lots of restaurants and pubs, a small cinema but no really exciting night-life. It is mainly a place for families with children or older people.
Not to be missed are the Concerts of the Langeoog Shanty choir "De Flinthörners" which take place frequently during the summer.
The island is a charming place even outside the summer season, but might be a little austere in November, January and February, when the islanders themselves prefer to go warmer places on their holidays.
Despite catering for families with children, this is not a cheap place. be prepared to spend quite some money. There is no real competition between local shops and restaurants and prices are according.

Ходили с дочкой на экскурсию ходьба по илистому дну, очень не привычно, но довольно таки интересно. Много рассказывали, показывали, экскурсия доставила нам много удовольствия. Дочь брала лопатку, чтобы покопать подальше от берега. Рекомендую для посещения.

My family loves to go to the Erlebnisbad in Langeoog. They have a wave pool, water slide, young children's play area and lots more. For the adults there is a wonderful sauna area. For visitors to the island, there is an hour's visit every day included in your Langeoog Card.

This tiny little museum is €3 but good for a short stop. Lots of info about boats in the area and on the island in general. Everything is in German though.

Rad&Roll Fahrradverleih

Reviewed By Susanne Z - Hattingen, Germany

Unsere Tochter hatte sich gewünscht, auf Langeoog einmal eine Fahrradtour zu unternehmen. Da es aud Langeoog sehr viele Fahrradverleihe gibt, gingen wir zum coolsten Bikestore in Town.
Wir liehen uns nur für einen Tag Beachcruiser aus. Mein Hawaii Rad nannte sich Tanja, unsere Tochter bekam Meg und mein Mann den Hai Butch.
Sehr gemütlich cruisten wir zur Meierei und etwas beschwerlicher gegen den Wind dann wieder zurück. Obwohl wir seit 2 Jahren kein Rad mehr gefahren sind, hatten wir weder Muskelkater noch Satteldruck.
Ein sehr gelungener Ausritt auf den coolsten Bikes der Insel.
