A holiday in Büsum means a holiday for everyone: whether you want a family holiday, a holiday with the dog, a short break, comfortable hotels, a reasonably-priced holiday flat or a large holiday house – you will find what you’re looking for here. There’s lots of room to play and romp around, as well as flat, wide open spaces for cycling and a healthy climate that restores and invigorates. Green dykes and untouched landscapes, the hustle and bustle of the harbour and strolls up and down the shopping streets, going for walks and enjoying the sun on the dykes.
Walking along the top of the dykes from the jetty, past the lighthouse to the Watt’n Insel, you will hear the shrieking of the seagulls and the roar of the North Sea. The constant ebb and flow of the sea around your feet. In the evening, there’s the taste of the North Sea on your tongue – Büsum shrimp soup, fresh fish and – if this is what you fancy – a fresh samphire salad.
On holiday in Büsum
Enjoy a deliciously relaxed start to the day in one of the many cafés, restaurants or bistros with a breakfast buffet. Once you’ve eaten your fill, it’s time to head off in the direction of the harbour and the Museum Harbour for a good long stroll. This is where Büsum shows its vibrant maritime side, with its many shrimping boats and shrimp sellers. A real challenge – but one which typifies Büsum like nothing else – is to buy fresh shrimp straight off the boat and to peel and eat them while sitting on the steps overlooking the Museum Harbour.
Bagging a boat!
A real highlight is going fishing on a shrimping boat in the North Sea. Soon the nets will be full of all that the shallow reaches of the North Sea have to offer: fish, crabs, jellyfish and mussels. The fishermen not only bring in the catch, but also show you what they’ve caught and explain everything in detail. Feel free to touch!
