Dornum Things to Do

  • …Inside the Synagogue

    As there is no Jewish community left in Dornum since the WWII, it is used as a museum now, interesting enough, it was not a general museum about the holocaust but it was telling about the Jewish history in Dornum, how did they get here when they escape pogroms somewhere elsewhere in Europe hundreds years back, the Jewish heroes of the WWI and the...

  • The biggest surprise : A Synagogue

    I arrive to this place by cycling in the area, and the biggest surprise I had was finding out that in this small town, not far from the North Sea there is a small synagogue. It was even open, so curious enough I stepped in…

  • Cafe Schneckenhaus

    This is the coffeehouse just in the town square, I am not sure about the menu here, it was just used for a stop over, getting relax with one beer and using the toilets before continuing on with the adventures of this area.

  • At the Cafe Schneckenhaus terrace

    After cycling all the way here from Norden (with few stopovers on the way) this was the perfect place to take a break and have a beer. The sun was shining and in this peaceful town, we could even hear the singing of the birds.

  • Lunch

    This is just the photo of the great quick lunch we had here. It was white fish with mayonnaise and potato salad. It was all prepared by the order, fresh and tasty. The weather was so good already in this early spring that we could sit outside and enjoy it.

    You probably never going to go specially to Dornum, but if you are in the area, during the spring or summer, best will be to cycling around and you will get to here as well. Coming by car is the easy way and there are also many small private airports for light planes.
    The nearest train station, I think is in Norden.

    There is excellent fish store here in town, so, if you are planning to cook something, stop over this store and get some fresh fish. Some are coming from the nearby fishing towns and it depends on the season of what you can get.

    What to buy: Fish

Dornum Off The Beaten Path

  • Tombstone

    That is one of the tombstones at the cemetery, they are about 150 - 200 years old, after finding out that there is this cemetery here, we assume that a Jewish community used to live here, and so we found out in the centre of town an old small synagogue which I wrote about in my must see activity tip.

  • The old cemetery.

    Being cycling around here, in some street corner we noticed a small sign about old Jewish cemetery, so we check it out, obviously it was a big surprise to think that even in a small place like that used to be once upon a time a small Jewish community.

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

    Favorite thing: I got to Dornum without many expectations, after all. It is a small town almost in the middle of nowhere. But in the end I found out it is actually lovely town with interesting history.
