From Hamburg or Cuxhaven: Catamaran Day Trip to Heligoland

1. From Hamburg or Cuxhaven: Catamaran Day Trip to Heligoland

Take an exciting day trip from to Heligoland, Germany's only island not in the vicinity of the mainland. Over 40 miles off the coast, the island is known for its spectacular red cliffs, upon which sit the white sands of sprawling dunes, surrounded by unspoiled nature. The boat departs from Hamburg early, with the ride lasting approximately 3.5 hours. Zip down the Elbe river to Cuxhaven and out onto the North Sea on a sleek, ultra-modern catamaran, passing the port of Cuxhaven. Enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi, gazing out across the vast waters from the open-air deck, or from the comfortable cabin. Modern flat screens all over the ship will teach you fun facts about the Elbe, Northern Germany, and the North Sea during the cruise. Arriving on Heligoland, wander the stunning island for approximately 4 hours. Gaze out over the dunes and onto the north sea, before doing some shopping — all tax free because of the island’s duty-free laws. Soak in the idyllic charm of the area, before hopping back on to the comfortable boat for your trip back to Hamburg.

It was extremely good and friendly organization and support in the museum. The exhibition is impressive in conveying the experiences, the individual fates of the emigrants through the centuries. As visitors, we were taken very closely into the experience. Important and good, however, is also the discussion, the look at immigrants and the questions about how we judge things politically. Strengthening the awareness that migration and migratory movements are something very normal in human history, for different reasons, and that the earth is there for all of us. The food in the restaurant was very tasty, but certainly not for every budget. Overall a very nice experience that we shared with our 15 year old grandson. For him, the search for our ancestors who emigrated and whose descendants he met at the big family reunions was very exciting

A great interactive museum with many touching insights. You walk in the footsteps of an emigrant assigned to you personally. Despite a 3-hour stay in the museum, there was far too little time for everything. The personal examination of the topic, as well as answering the questions in the extra area, must take place on the next visit! We will be back! For refreshment, there was delicious fish soup in the outdoor area of the restaurant... Although it is a popular and well-visited museum, it never felt overcrowded. Being there first thing in the morning at 10 a.m. is definitely a good tip. We can highly recommend it.

Die Tickets und das Zeitfenster für unseren Besuch haben wir drei Tage vorher gebucht. Das hat gut geklappt und gleich morgens mussten wir am Eingang kaum warten. Alles war sehr interessant nür leider hatte ich nicht genug Zeit um am Ende in den Datenbanken zu "forschen". Sehr schade fand ich, dass von den 8 Computern nur 2 auf Deutsch eingerichter waren....Ansonsten waren die Beschreibungen gut auf Deutsch und Englisch .

A very creative setup with audio, visual and informative displays to engage the mind and help place you in the historical moment.

Wir hatten eine schöne Zeit gemeinsam mit Themen, über die man sonst nicht redet.
