The writer Theodor Storm once described Husum as a grey town by the sea. Not a trace of that can be seen now: Husum is colourful and lively! Get in the mood for our cycling tour in North Friesland as you go for a stroll through the harbour, where you can watch the tide go out. Husum is the ideal place to go on exciting day trips from. You visit St. Peter-Ording. The seemingly endless sandy beach and the pile dwellings are also among the highlights on our cycle tour in North Frisia, as is the red-and-white striped Westerhever lighthouse. On Hallig Hooge you will experience the unique atmosphere of life on a dwelling mound and the danger of flooding from the North Sea. Friedrichstadt will make you feel like you are in  Holland. Thanks to Dutch immigrants, the town gained its present appearance in the 17th century - canals included. The idyllic harbour town of Tönning impresses with its picturesque harbour and the Multimar Wattforum, which offers you insights into life on and in the Wadden Sea. Last but not least, you will be visiting Sylt, the queen of the North Sea, on our bike tour in North Friesland. Beautiful beaches and dune landscapes are as much a part of Germany's largest North Sea island as the thatched Frisian houses and a colourful cultural scene. Well-maintained cycle paths, sheep grazing on dikes, the fresh North Sea air, and the laid-back North Frisians as well as the hearty North German cuisine round out our cycle tour in North Frisia perfectly.

Bike Tour along the North Sea Coast

Day 1: Individual arrival in Husum

There is hardly a better place to stay for a cycling tour in North Friesland than Husum. The first thing you will want to see is the tide moving in and out of the town's inland harbour. Over time, the town has grown into a small metropolis on the North Sea and leaves nothing to be desired. Be it culinary or cultural, if you want to get to know North Frisia, Husum is the perfect starting place to do so.

Day 2: Day trip to St. Peter Ording, approx. 60 km + train ride

The first day of your cycling tour in North Friesland begins with a train ride to St. Peter-Ording. The 12-kilometre-long sandy beach is ideal for sunbathing and watching the kite surfers being pulled across the waves by the stiff breeze. The distinctive pile dwellings on the beach have existed for over 100 years, and they still serve the beach goers to this day! Back on the bike, you cycle along the coast to Westerhever. There, the famous red-and-white striped lighthouse awaits you. You will be able to see the landmark of the Eiderstedt peninsula from afar.

Day 3: Day trip to Hallig Hooge, approx. 25 km + ferry rides and transfer

Take your time exploring the Nordstrand peninsula before taking the ferry to Hallig Hooge at noon. Hallig islands are small marshland islands in the Wadden Sea that are flooded several times a year. Thanks to the terps - artificial embankments - the islands can be inhabited all year round. Hooge is the second largest Hallig in the Schleswig-Holstein Wadden Sea. Visit the storm surge cinema, where you can watch the flooding of an island on the big screen. Also worth seeing: the Königspesel, an originally preserved captain's house. In the evening you return to Nordstrand. A transfer will take you back to Husum.

Day 4: Day trip to Friedrichstadt and Tönning, approx. 40 km + train ride

Today your cycle tour in North Friesland will take you to Friedrichstadt through the Südermarsch region. Leave your bike somewhere safe and stroll along the numerous canals of the Dutch town. On your way to Tönning, you will pass typical North German villages and the Hoyerswort manor house, Schleswig-Holstein's only noble estate on the west coast. Tönning is an idyllic harbour town. The Multimar Wattforum lets you explore the world of the Wadden Sea and the North Sea. Treat yourself to a hearty fish sandwich at the harbour before returning to Husum by train.

Day 5: Excursion to the island of Sylt

A train will take you from Husum to the island of Sylt via Niebüll. The largest North Frisian island is extremely scenic and impresses with its kilometre-long sandy beaches, cliffs, dune areas and thatched houses. The island boasts a network of over 200 kilometres of cycle paths. Ideal for a short or long cycling tour. Cycle along the former Sylt island railway line, to the Hörnum lighthouse, to the Red Cliff near Kampen, or have a fish sandwich in List, the options you can choose from are nearly endless. In the evening you return to Husum by train.

Day 6: Individual departure or extended stay

After breakfast, your cycling tour in North Friesland will be coming to an end. If you want, you can extend your stay in Husum.
