Day Trips to Helgoland Feb 14, 2017
The most popular and most attracive day trip destination from Cuxhaven is the island of Helgoland, some 60-70 kms out in the North Sea. Helgoland is famous for its red sandstone cliffs and its high sea climate, the sea birds nesting on the rocks, World War II history, and duty-free shopping.

There are two options to get there. The fastest is the katamaran “Halunder Jet” which takes you there in 1 h 15. The ferry “Atlantis” takes about twice as long but gives you the chance to enjoy the sea cruise on deck. With either you have about 3 hours to play with on the island. Both ships are operated by Helgoline. In high season both run daily, in shoulder season the katamaran runs only on certain days, and in winter even the ferry connections are notably thinned out – check the website.

The katamaran departs from Alte Liebe quay, the “Atlantis” from the ferry port. As on the katamaran everyone has an assigned seat, tickets can sell out. Prebooking a couple of days in advance is advisable. Tickets for the “Atlantis” are easier to obtain, the ship is bigger and has no assigned seating.

The katamaran lands in the Southern port so you disembark right on the island. The Atlantis, like all other Helgoland ferries from other destinations, has to anchor outside the port and passengers are transferred to small open boats which bring them to shore. In rough weather this can be exciting...
