Greetsiel

N 5330.053', E 75.708'
2019-04-06
Our rating: 6.60
Overall rating:
A small fishing village in East Frisia on the shores of the Wadden Sea. Recently it has turned into a popular resort, mainly because of the historical center, which has been preserved in excellent condition. The village is a great base for cycling and hiking. We spent the night here to take a walk in the area and see the Pilsum lighthouse.

The old center is located near the port

The architecture here is traditional for this region, very similar to Netherlands.

Most of the port houses have historically been owned by shrimp cutters. These are original, preserved houses of the 17-18 centuries.

The church was built in 1380-1410.
