Sonne, Wind und lange Spaziergänge an menschenleeren Stränden. Auch in der kalten Jahreszeit lässt es sich auf den ostfriesischen Inseln gut leben und Urlaub machen.
Now is the perfect time for island stories. And Bucki Begemann, a native of the island of Borkum, has plenty of them to tell on his tours. On the nearby island of Juist, we take a walk through the tidal flats and go searching for cockles and lugworms. A traditional pastime in the region is the game of bosseln, which involves throwing rubber or wooden balls as far as possible. And shivering a bit isn't so bad when there are great ways to warm up. Like in Norderney, where the beach restaurant White Dunes, with its inviting fireplace, stays open through the winter.
