For water and land rats
The kilometres of developed paths directly on the dyke are wide enough and offer ideal conditions for walkers, cyclists, Nordic walkers and inline skaters. Right next to the tourist information in Greetsiel is our 18-hole miniature golf course, which definitely guarantees great fun for the whole family. In the Krummhörn-Greetsiel holiday region, there are numerous opportunities for horse riding on farms. The equestrian sports club Krummhörn offers riding, lunging and individual lessons for young and old. There is also accommodation for your own horse here. The signposted nature trail “Freepsumer Meer” at the “lowest point” in the Warf village Freepsum with paved hiking trails leads around and through the drained inland sea. In this idyll, animals can be observed that have found a protected habitat here.
The East Frisian canal network is one of the most extensive in Germany. Almost every village in the Krummhörn can be reached on the canals and lowlands. Excursion boats set off from Greetsiel for tours on the waterways and to the Leysiel sea lock. On these trips you will experience nature and culture from new perspectives. In addition, there are also excursions to the East Frisian Islands during the holiday periods. Come aboard.
Hiking high up on our dykes as “border crossers between land and sea” -be it conventionally, or as Nordic walkers: Here you have the overview of land and sea! Enjoy the unique view of the endless expanse of the Wadden Sea National Park, which extends seawards. Far out on the horizon you can see the big ships pulling. The country side offers the contrasting programme with the countless shades of green of the lush marshes. On the way, you always come across charming motifs that make a holiday with us so endearing. Nordic Walking: There are 6 well-signposted routes of varying lengths with a total length of 50 kilometres (from easy to diffi cult). The starting and finishing points are in Greetsiel at the Greetsiel Oasis.
Whether by canoe or kayak, in a rubber dinghy or in a motor boat -with us even the “inland skipper” can explore a very varied and widely ramified district. All ditches, canals and creeks are still important components of a sophisticated drainage system and are regularly maintained. For information on water depths and bridge clearance heights, we recommend a detailed waterway map.
In many villages there are landing stages or even small boat harbours. Water tourists are always welcome!
