Sun, wind and long walks on deserted beaches. Even in winter, the East Frisian Islands are a great destination for good living and relaxation.
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.
