When we finally found a path...

  • Travelling around Langeoog

    Langeoog is a car-free island, and the only cars we saw were a few electric cars. That's very nice! There's also a so-called Inselbahn (island train) that travels between the harbour and the town which takes about 15 minutes. Instead of cars we saw many cyclists, and there are also horse-drawn carriages. Another option to discover the island is of...
