On land, on water, in the fresh air – there's so much to experience.

Old sailing ships rock lazily in the harbour, as little waves applaud them. Fancy a stroll through the old town, or perhaps a canoe trip? What about an excursion to Groningen in the Netherlands? Or maybe to the North Sea? Take your time as you decide, perhaps over a typical East Frisian tea with rock sugar - and then off you go!
