The North Sea, the Wadden Sea and a feeling of exhilaration!


Welcome to Borkum. Letting the wind really blow the cobwebs away: That's what Borkum, the westernmost and also the largest of the East Frisian Islands, is perfect for. Thanks to the North Sea climate, the fresh sea air is particularly low in pollen and high in iodine. Mud flats and waves promise an exhilarating experience. Fall in love with the beautiful island and coastline. There's also a wide range of sports on offer and plenty of good entertainment.
But see for yourself. We look forward to welcoming you!
