Wattwagenfahrt nach Neuwerk

Back to the roots

With two HP over the mudflats to Neuwerk island. On to the remotest part of Hamburg.

Travelling by Wattwagen (horse-drawn carriage) is a unique experience. The smell of sea salt, the powerful horses setting the pace and the passengers getting a face full of the sea spray. This used to be norm, but today it is a great adventure for the whole family. Neuwerk in the Helgoland Bight lies in the centre of the national park established in 1990 and it offers rugged, unspoilt nature.
