The famous poem “The Town” by Theodor Storm gave Husum the nickname “Grey Town by the Sea”. But Storm’s hometown certainly doesn’t look grey and dreary on a walk through Husum’s old town. Besides the numerous museums such as the North Frisian Museum, the Nissenhaus and the Theodor Storm House, the 16th-century castle with its gatehouse and idyllic castle park are also worth seeing. On the market square, the Marienkirche (St. Mary’s Church) and the Asmussen-Woldsen Monument, designed as a fountain, are impressive. The monument, also called the “Tine Fountain”, is considered Husum’s landmark and shows the bronze sculpture of a young fisherwoman with a headscarf, wearing wooden shoes and holding an oar in her right hand.
