Hallig Hooge - the hallig
This hallig has the most residents and the largest number of visitors in the North Sea: up to 1,000 guests a day visit the islet in the summer. The natives have a well-developed system for hosting them. The name Hooge means high, and because it is also surrounded by a small summer dike, “land under” happens here only two to three times a year. About 120 people live on nine warfts, or mounds of earth. There are twice that number of guest accommodations. Hallig Hooge, 570 hectares large, is “only” the second largest hallig after Langeness, but it is No. 1 in tourism. Families, hikers, nature enthusiasts, cyclists, and creative people find everything on Hooge for a great vacation. The calm rhythm of the island automatically provides relaxation for your body and soul. In addition, you can book the “Five Tibetans” vacation package. Not only human guests are welcome on Hooge. Guest animals are invited regularly to graze the meadows. Since there is only one commercial farmer left, he doesn’t have enough animals for this.
