Allotment gardens are no Helgoland speciality, they are common and popular all over Germany, but I found these especially cute and worth a look. They are perched on the edge of the cliff on the Northeastern side outside Oberland settlement. The round walk takes you right past them. They are all walled in with high fences and hedges to protect them from the everlasting wind. Inside, people have created their little paradises: a garden hut, a place to sit, flower beds, some vegetables. A place to forget the rough surroundings in the middle of the sea.
If you take the traditional boat (means: not the katamaran) then you will take part in the boating procedure. Everybody has to exit the ship and take a small boat to land. Especially when the waves are higher, it is something funny.
