  Harbour - Greetsiel
by MichaelFalk1969

Greetsiel is a picture-perfect small harbour town in Frisia (the utmost northwestern part of Germany, near the Dutch border). Up to 30 crab-fishing boats are moored in the harbour. The Old Town is very small and contains lots of tiny frisian-style houses. Two historic windmills (built 1706 and 1856) complete the idyllic, laid-back athmosphere of Greetsiel. Only 2 km from the city centre the famous Pilsum lighthouse, painted with yellow-red stripes, is one of the iconic sights of the region. Bycicle Rental is recommended, as the area around Greetsiel is very flat and one can spend hours cycling along the sea or through the small idyllic hamlets of the Krummhörn region.
