East Frisian Islands June 2003
The Islands
The East Frisian Islands lie just off the coast of Germany in the North Sea.   They are a favourite destination for beach lovers in the summer, hikers in the winter and “twitchers” (bird watchers) all year round.   They can be reached by air, or ferry from small ports in East Frisia.

The Ferries
Some of the islands do not have vehicles, so a mixture of car and passenger ferries operate the routes.   The journeys all take about an hour.
