Why do so many holidaymakers come to the North Sea year after year?

Allow us to answer this question with a counter-question:

Do you long for more balance of body, mind and soul?See, so do others.And you can find them on the North Sea …even all year round.

That is the reason why so many people like to spend their holidays at the North Sea again and again.They love the interplay of ebb and flow.They appreciate the far-reaching view of the horizon, the revitalization of the water …hiking through the mud flats.Parents enjoy watching their children build castles or compete with them on the beach.Isn’t it nice to simply let your soul dangle comfortably in a beach chair in the wind?Not to forget the exercise in the fresh air of the North Sea.

The stimulating climate of the North Sea is not only beneficial for asthmatics and allergy sufferers.The iodine-rich and pollen-poor North Sea air is good for everyone.This is especially true for ‘kids of the big city’, whose lungs and bronchi are not exposed to the usual fine dust pollution on the North Sea.The North Sea and North Sea air, combined with a wide range of design options, offer: freshness, nature, peace, experience, enjoyment, relaxation, exactly what the body needs at least once a year to regain its full vitality.And because your body also needs this break to recharge its batteries, we recommend a holiday on the North Sea.Maybe even in the beach chair pension.
