Having friends somewhere else is great. I met some wintersportfriends in Austria that lived in Cuxhaven, way up North in Germany (the part of the country that resambles The Netherlands completely). Bremen is here a wonderful town with Hanze-history (the old trading-treaty that connected towns from Russian Novgorod until Doesburg (near my hometown Arnhem in The Netherlands). In the Altstadt (Oldtown) many buildings remind of these rich days of Bremen. Cuxhaven itself lies at the Elbe-mouth and along the Wadden-islands.

It is a very special adventure (best done in Northern Netherlands) to walk once from the mainland "through the sea" to one of the islands. Do it with a professional guide! as we do not want you to drown as the tide unexpectedly runs in. Onto the Northsea there is a very strange island: Helgoland.

It has belonged to the Danish, the English, pirates and now it is German (strategic it's a important place that holds the Deutsche Bugt and the entrance of the Elbe-river). The red cliffs are very high and withstand the forces of wind and water for already many millenia. Of course the inhabitants of the island gave them pretty names, like on the picture: Long Anna
