I do love the nord see coast of germany ... the islands here are beautiful and hold a wonder of their own.
Juist is the is one of the seven inhabited Frisian Islands at the edge of the southern north sea,
Is is located between Borkum Island (west), Memmert Island (southwest) and the much larger populated island of Norderney (east).
Juist is 17 km long and 500 m to 1 km wide (this depends on the level of the tide, which sinks and falls about 2.5 m in 6 hours).
There are two villages on the island: the main village Juist, and Loog.
Access to the island can be by Ferry using the small Reederei Norden-Frisia Frisia II, Frisia VI, Frisia IX, Frisia X ferries as they can only get in at high tide this limits the boat to 1 or max 2 times a day.
A non-tide-dependent way to reach the island is offered by the Airline FLN, though the weather conditions are sometimes - especially in winter - so bad that the airline has to cancel all flights for a day! It can be very bumpy!
The passage by ship takes about - depending on the wind and the waterlevel - 90 minutes, a flight takes just 7 minutes.
We used the ferry leaving the car on the main land
