The endless kilometres of beaches in this holiday destination between the North Sea and Elbe and Weser rivers invites holidaymakers to unwind. Lying in the sun here is just as pleasant as surfing the North Sea waves. The scenic charms of the region are not confined to the beaches. Heathland and tranquil peat bogs, lush marshland meadows and the parched alluvial fields of the “Geest” invite excursions, cycling trips, horse riding or exploring its waterways.
