Data about East Friesland

Ostfriesland is located in Lower Saxony in the north-west of Germany.East Friesland has three districts: Aurich, Leer, and Wittmund and the independent city of Emden.About 470,000 people live in the regional association of East Friesland.The North Sea coast is the natural border of East Friesland.In front of the coast are the East Frisian Islands.While agriculture and fishing and maritime trade in the seaports used to be the main economic focus, today some industrial cores (wind power) and tourism are of outstanding importance.

Remarkable for Ostfriesland is the fact that this region is not dominated by any larger city, but by medium-sized cities like Aurich.Leer, Emden, Oldenburg, Jever and Wittmund determine the urban structure of East Friesland.

The landscape of East Friesland

The most notable feature of East Friesland is the Wadden Sea as a unique biotope, which is also a nature reserve.Ebb and flow determine the rhythm here and create a unique landscape criss-crossed by tidal creeks between the islands and the mainland.

With local guides you can walk from the mainland to the islands at low tide.In many places, when the water drops, salt marshes are formed, which are only fully flooded in the event of extreme floods.As a result, there is a unique habitat for plants and birds.

Behind the dikes, which people started to put in about 1000 years ago, lies the marshland.However, storm surges repeatedly overcame the dikes and caused large losses of land.Inland, the coastal area then transitions into low moors, geest and raised moors.The Eternal Sea in particular stands out as a popular destination.While there was hardly any forest in East Friesland in earlier times, there are now woods and forest areas in many places.Among the (fen) lakes in East Friesland, the Great Sea is the most well-known.

The Ems is the largest river in East Friesland.

A large number of smaller watercourses runs through Ostfriesland and these are connected to a large extent by man-made canals.This structure of the water veins ensures drainage via sluices and locks.The Ems-Jade Canal is the longest artificial watercourse in East Friesland.

The climate of East Friesland

Ostfriesland is the warm temperate zone as far as year-round precipitation is concerned.The relatively balanced temperatures are significant.Summer temperatures above 20° are normal, while the 30° mark is rarely exceeded.Winters are generally mild, rarely below -10°.Snow and frost days are statistically in the single digits.

With an average annual temperature of around 10°, East Friesland is above the average for Germany and is therefore one of the “warmer” areas.

Eating and drinking in East Friesland

Tea is the national drink of the East Frisians.People drink about 10 times as much tea here as in the rest of the country.Introduced by the Dutch and British in the 17th century, 100 years later tea was indispensable in all social classes, which significantly reduced the previously heavy consumption of beer.This is how a separate East Frisian tea culture developed, which can be experienced in the tea museum in the city of Norden.

There are set rituals and guests are traditionally served tea as a welcome drink.At least three cups of tea are drunk according to the old custom “Dree is Ostfreesenrecht” and the spoon is placed in the cup if no refills are desired.

Green cabbage and pinkel are the most well-known main dishes in East Friesland and are very well known and popular.In this dish, the meat must be cooked in the kale and never separately.Before harvesting, the kale must have had at least one day of frost, which gives it its unmistakable taste.
