North Sea island on the Wadden Sea World Heritage Site

On Pellworm, the clocks tick differently – this is what both locals and holidaymakers say who are looking for peace and relaxation on the North Sea island. Located on the UNESCO World Heritage North Frisian Wadden Sea, the picturesque island has something to offer in all seasons. From bathing to mudflat hiking to visiting the many sights. These include the 380-metre-high lighthouse dating from 1906, which also houses a registry office. The ruined tower of the Old Church – the so-called “Friesendom” – is considered the island’s landmark. Legend has it that the tower served as a hideout for the pirate Cord Widderich, from where he went on a raid.
