Norddeich Things to Do

  • The harbour

    Norddeich was actually build as the fishing harbour of the town of Norden, while walking here on the dike you will sooner or later get to the see harbour. I am not sure when and if it had a better days, but anyhow, was interesting seeing the boats and ferries here.

  • The beach

    Being is so many beaches, from the sandy dunes of the Mediterranean Sea to the sea and lake beaches in Finland I can say that the beaches here are unique. The main reason is the tide of course, when I was here, the sea was 'empty' in the mornings and full active in the afternoons.

    more
  • Nordsee

    If you go all the way here, it is for the North Sea, this place that it is also famous for the tide difference is very interesting when the sea withdraws and you can actually walk on the bottom of the sea a few kilometres into the sea.

  • Cafe Boat

    This is not a real boat, just a coffeehouse shape as a boat. It is just by the sea with a great view. When walking around it was a place I enjoy to take a break, having a cold beer and look at the view.

Norddeich Nightlife

  • Pub Fahr Keller inside

    This pub has an atmosphere as a sailor’s pub, on the bar, indeed few sailor type persons are sitting and having their glass refilled when empty. I did the same and received the same friendly service. I try to listen to what they say as I can get a bit of German language, but they spoke that Ostfriesland German which means, I could understand...

  • Pub Fahr Keller

    Well, as other member here refers to Norddeich as a place without nightlife, I discovered this very small pub located in the cellar just under this Hotel Fahrhaus. It is serving also local traditional food, fish & schnitzel.

Norddeich Transportation

  • Horseriding

    Well, that is not the most popular way of transportation here, but, if you already have a horse, a horse ride in this place can be very nice and funny way to get around.

    more
  • Ferry

    There are ferries that go to the small islands around here. The trip must be very short as you can see the islands in the skyline. When the tide is low, there is even the possibility to walk to those islands but you need to have a guide with you.

    more
  • Train

    There is a train station here, the train will take you all the way to the harbour in case you need to take the ferry to one of the islands. The train is not very frequent here, there are only few trains a day but they will connect you to all destinations in Germany, it just that you need to change trains on your way in a bigger cities as Bremen,...

    All over this resort there are many small or large souvenirs stores. Most of items are just crap normal for tourist, some item might be a bit more interesting. Anyhow, if you do plan to buy any in this region, better to buy it here in Norddeich then the more popular destinations where the prices will be even higher.

    What to buy: Wooden Windmill for 2 euro, I think it was good barging

    What to pay: Zwei euro

Norddeich Local Customs

  • Herring

    As fishing town the selection of fresh fish is wide here. I did try few different ones and here is an example of fresh herring. It was delicious and one of the best I ever had. Much better then anything you buy in your local supermarket.

  • Fishing town

    Norddeich was build first as a fishing town, only later they discover the potential on tourism and they invest in it. Today it is a tourist resort, but still you can feel the old tradition if you look for it.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Floods were more common here before they build the dike. Actually the dike had been upgraded and builds higher with the years. On the left side of pole you can see the different heights of the dike. On the right side here you can see how high was the water level in the worst years. 1906 was the worst with 6.70 m. and 1973 was record 5.90 m.

    Favorite thing: As it is a summer town, there are lots of attractions for kids here, like this playing ground not far from the sea and the beach. Netta and Amos spent some time here, to use more energy before going home for dinner.
