Anyone on holiday in St. Peter Ording should definitely have seen it – the St. Peter-Ording Sea Bridge. After about 1,000 metres, you can cross the bridge to reach the beach section of the Bad district and the pile dwelling restaurant Arche Noah. Here you can admire the fantastic sea view while enjoying a good meal. The St. Peter Ording pier was built in 1926 on the initiative of the spa director v. Wechmar, as more and more visitors wanted to bathe on the offshore sandbank. Just one year later, the pier was destroyed by an ice tide. In the following decades, further restorations and a newly built widening including small seating bays and slanted lamps were carried out.

These numerous seating areas and beach chairs for hire are perfect for people who are not so good on foot. Here you can relax and enjoy the fresh sea air and unique surroundings of the Sankt Peter Ording pier. The barrier-free wooden bridge leads from the lively centre of St. Peter Ording through a picturesque dune landscape with salt marshes and tidal creeks to the beach.

Extra tip for dog owners

Dogs are expressly permitted both on the St. Peter Ording pier and at the Bad bathing area. However, the SPO pier is not easily accessible by bike – pedestrians clearly have priority here. Take a leisurely stroll and enjoy the sea breeze and study the interesting information boards along the way.

Don’t forget your spa card for the St. Peter-Ording bridge

Important for all those who want to go to the beach: Don’t forget your visitor’s card! Otherwise you will have to pay an admission fee of three euros. The pier and the restaurants there are very busy, especially in the high season. If you are unsure, you can check the number of visitors via the Sankt Peter-Ording pier live webcam. Depending on the time of year, you can also watch oystercatchers at work here.

Another highlight near St. Peter Ording Strand is the adventure promenade with numerous rest areas, sunbathing lawns, a fitness trail with equipment, viewing platforms and a biotope. You can also go on a Big Five safari along the promenade in small safari cars on the trail of the Wadden Sea’s Big Five: sea eagle, seal, harbour porpoise, grey seal and sturgeon. The nearby Erlebnis Hus has an indoor playground, a skate park, a working area and a viewing platform on four floors. You can also get a great view of the St. Peter Ording jetty and the surrounding area from the Magdalenenhöhe. The small wooden platform on the highest elevation in the area is also known as Maleens Knoll and offers a good view of the Eiderstedt peninsula and the North Sea coast.
