Helgoland – a hidden gem in the truest sense
Staying in a Helgoland holiday home transcends being simply unique and is an exceptional experience. This north sea island is an achipelago which seems to just rise up majestically right within the middle of a blue sea which seems like an endless expance. The island is technically a part of Schleswig Holstein but there is nowhere in the world quite like it. The island has a genuinely extraordinary as well as rich history, culture, and tradition that spans centuries.
A fit tourist could explore this entire North Sea island within just a day, but a longer stay in Helgoland holiday accommodation is a novel and once-in-a-lifetime experience. For visitors staying in Hamburg, Helgoland is the perfect day-trip as there is a very regular boat going to and from this northern town and the island in peak season.

Composing of two islands, the smaller is essentially a beach. This is a great destination for a beach holiday with a twist. The locals here have underwent an extraordinary history that saw them ruled by the Danish and Brits at different times. A holiday rental in Helgoland would be an authentic way of seeing this former part of Britain – literally living history. Now an official part of Germany, the islanders have still managed to maintain true to their frisian roots, which is also manifested in the language spoken, Halunder.

If not for any other reason, it's worth extending your stay in a holiday home in Helgoland just to stock up! Naturally, Helgoland is full of nice shops, cafes and restaurants so it is great for obambulating and strolling around at a leisurely pace.
