Schillig is located on the north-eastern tip of the Wangerland - at the point where the North Sea heads off inland towards the Jade Bight. Our Youth Hostel is situated behind the dyke, just a ten-minute walk from the centre of town. The sandy beach, which is unusually long for our region, is just five minutes away - and is just perfect for little castle lords and ladies. Beyond that, something truly special awaits: the Lower Saxon Wadden Sea. There is absolutely loads to discover. Prepare to be amazed!
