Originally established as a Viking settlement, Sankt Peter-Ording is a popular seaside town on Germany’s North Sea coast. It’s surrounded by beautiful beaches, dunes and meadows and is the only coastal resort in the country with a sulphur spring.
Spend your days relaxing on the wide sands of Badestelle Ording, which is home to a children’s playground and a water sports centre where you can rent kitesurfing equipment. At the West Coast Park & Robbarium, kids can let loose in the naturally-inspired playground before getting up close to the resident harbour seals.
If you love the natural qualities of amber, visit Boy Jöns, a museum that’s operated by a local amber craftsman. Alternatively, you can delve into the history of the Eiderstedt peninsula at the Haus Jensen Heimatmuseum. A highlight of visiting Sankt Peter-Ording is indulging in a therapeutic treatment at one of the local spas.
Hamburg Airport is just under two hours’ drive from Sankt Peter-Ording, with trains connecting to the Bad St Peter-Ording railway station. Buses travel to towns and villages throughout the region while bicycles are one of the most popular ways of getting around.
