    Life boat

    by himalia11 Written Mar 26, 2010

    There's a life boat next to the "Haus der Insel" and the indoor swimming pool, and you can visit it at specific times. This life boat was used between 1945 and 1980 and did rescue over 800 people. That looks like a high amount to me!
    It's only open from 10:30 to 11:30 on some days, better check the current schedule on their webpage. We fortunately managed to be there during the opening times and had a short look. You can climb up the boat and go inside and visit the small rooms below. Really interesting!
    There's no admission, but donations are welcome for restoring and maintain the boat.

    The water tower (Wasserturm)

    by himalia11 Written Mar 26, 2010

    The water tower was build 1908 on a 10m high dune and is the island's landmark. It's not used anymore since 1996 and now serves as viewing point and also hosts an exhibition. As it's usually only open from March to October we didn't have the chance to visit its inside, but already from in front of the tower you had a nice view on the dunes and the sea.

    The beach & dunes

    by himalia11 Updated Mar 26, 2010

    Langeoog has a 14 km long beach. Walking along that large beach on a sunny November had been great and we hardly could stop walking! Behind the beach are dunes which are protected, and there were only a few paths from the beach back to the inland. So we ended up walking pretty long along the beach, but enjoyed it much! When we finally found a path inland, we discovered a lake called Schloppsee. The walk back through the dunes was nice, too, and fortunately the wind there was not so strong like on the sea, otherwise walking would have been very difficult as the wind came from the front!

    The train

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The train carries the passengers and their packages from/to the southern harbour to/from the north where the village and the beach are.

    The price of the ticket to the island contains a return fare by the train.

    Water tower

    A quite nice water tower.

    There is a one time free entry possibility with the passage ticket. It is worth to take this opportunity, because there are excellent view to the island and the North Sea.

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's a lovely village with a little bit expensive shops.

    There are only a few car with electric engine and a lot of bycicle.

    It's so nice walking in the village.
