    Go to the oceanis. It is next the harbour. There is a nice simulation. You get the impression of being in a research station 100 m deep on the ground of the sea.

    During a visit at headoffice in Wilhelmshaven I took the chance to fly with this Beechcraft Sundowner from the airport of Mariensiel to the nearby islands along the North German coastal line.

    There are commercial flights available at very reasonable prices.
