Seaport on the North Sea coast

  • Fresh wind and wide mudflats. The seaport of Husum lies directly on the North Sea coast. The Wadden Sea National Park, with its unique island and islets, starts at the harbour. Here you can not just enjoy gorgeous stroll, you can also buy fresh fish and shrimps strait from the fishing boats. When the sea retreats, the wide mudflats form a glittering surface. This special natural spectacle can best be experience with an excursion to the mudflats. A real highlight in Husum are the boat trips to the seal banks and the neighbouring islands. Discover the charming town on the North Sea.

Enjoy the North Sea atmosphere in Husum

Husum has a charming old part of town with historical buildings and streets. Above all, the old and the new town hall as well as the elegant facades at the market place and St Mary's Church are worth seeing. One special attraction is Husum Castle, where millions of purple crocuses bloom in the park every April. Just 30 minutes away from the hostel there's a swimming area for a refreshing treat. The sea is a magnet for active people. Husum Bay is really popular with surfers, sailors, rowers and cyclists.
