For island vacationers, relaxation usually begins with arrival by ship. Completely stress free – especially if you leave your car on the mainland. But car ferries to Amrum and Föhr, to Pellworm and Sylt (from Römö) can also bring the “favorite child” of Germans along. Frequently scheduled regular and cruise ships guarantee fast connections. The North Sea island Helgoland can be reached from several ports on the mainland in Niedersachsen and Schleswig-Holstein and from Hamburg. But cars and bicycles are not allowed here.
