The Wadden Sea and the North Sea coast

North Sea waves foam against green dykes. The sea comes and goes with the tides. And the Wadden Sea gives way to the water. A mudflat walk is one of the special highlights that one can experience in Büsum. But besides that, there's a lot of life in the popular northern seaside resort: in the harbour you can enjoy freshly caught shrimp, the "Blanker Hans" experience centre tells visitors about storm surges, the large "Piraten Meer" swimming pool and the pedestrian area are just around the corner.

Büsum on the North Sea coast

Sunbathing, swimming, boat trips. Büsum offers plenty of recreational opportunities. The grassy beaches and shallow waters make Büsum a very special North Sea resort. When the sea retreats, the Wadden Sea displays its glittering surface. Its secrets are best explored on a guided mudflat excursion. The little Büsum harbour with fishing boats and pleasure boats is idyllic. From here, you can sail to the offshore island of Heligoland. There's barely any other place that can offer so many recreational opportunities as Büsum. Many leisure tickets are available at the front desk.
