Welcome to Norderney
Founded in 1797 by Friedrich Wilhelm II of Prussia, Norderney became one of the most famous bathing destinations in Europe, after Crown Prince George V of Hanover made it his summer residence, and personalities such as Chancellor Otto von Bismarck and composer Robert Schumann visited in the 19th century. Islanders call it ‘Lüttje Welt’ (‘Little World’) for the way fog makes it seem like it’s the only place on earth.
Norddeich is the mainland town servicing both Nordeney and Juist islands. It's worth considering spending a night here before heading over.
