1 Heligoland tours

All aboard for Heligoland! Experience a genuine sea voyage to Germany's only remote offshore island, Heligoland, with its unique unspoilt nature, pure air and duty free shopping. From Cuxhaven, you can travel in comfort to the island of Heligoland on the Halunder Jet catamaran operated by FRS Helgoline. Between late April and early November, the catamaran runs daily at 11.30am from the Alte Liebe in Cuxhaven directly to the harbour at Heligoland in only 75 minutes – and no additional boats are required for disembarkation. Cuxhaven-Heligoland is the shortest and most reliable connection to this remote offshore island.

2 Sailing ships Mercedes and Eldorado

Let the winds dictate your course! On day trips aboard the luxury Mercedes brig or the sailing ship Eldorado, you will be well looked after by a professional crew. The sailing ship Mercedes, one of the most recent additions to the international fleet of tall ships, is luxuriously finished with fine wood, leather sofas and brass handrails. The crew is ready to take care of your every need, the barman serves refreshing drinks and the chef cooks and bakes on board. You can lend a hand with setting the sails and even take the wheel on the bridge. The trips are suitable for children and families, and the ship meets the strictest safety requirements for commercial passenger transport.
