Find the Friendship for Life on Juist

Island Love

Longing for Töwerland

The most beautiful place on earth

Long sandy beaches on one side, wide and flat, flanked by dunes and the wonderful North Sea, on the other side the multi-faceted Wadden Sea, seemingly an eternity away from the stress of everyday life on the mainland, above you the blue sky, sometimes sprinkled with a few fluffy clouds, the point where the sea and the horizon kiss in the distance, a little wind blowing around your nose. Yes, Juist really is the most beautiful place on earth - at least in our absolutely non-objective opinion.

Feel the connection to nature, reminisce, feel your emotions. In short: Make Juist your favorite island!

Tidal Juist

Where high and low tide determine life

The daily newspaper is only available after the first plane has landed, letters are only delivered after the arrival of the ferry, the excuse "Sorry, I can't come: I missed the ferry" really applies: Juist is located in the middle of the Wadden Sea and (apart from a flight or traveling with one of the express ferry) can only be reached by island ferry once or twice a day at the most.

Have you ever been to the harbor at low tide? Then you know why the big island ferry is so limited in its sailing times. The narrow channel between Norddeich pier and Juist harbor zigzags through the Wadden Sea, seemingly as thin as a thread. It takes some skill on the part of the captains to steer their craft safely from the mainland to the island.

Juist lives with this tidal dependence. Sure, it can be constricting at times, but above all, it's incredibly relaxing. You don't believe us? But you should! We are reminded that despite all the technical progress we humans have made, we are still only ... "guests" on earth. We have to submit to the natural force of the tides. Knowing that you won't get off the island anyway (medical emergencies excluded - we're keeping our fingers crossed that you never get into the situation of experiencing firsthand what it's like to have to be transported to the mainland by rescue helicopter) is incredibly relaxing. You can let go of the reins and just focus on being here, slowing down and relaxing.

Event Island.

Juist and its many, many events.

The whole day to see, to experience, to do things. In the high season you could spend the whole day going from one event to the next, from one experience to the next, but you certainly won't be bored in the low season either!
