Cuxhaven Area Holiday Guide

Cuxhaven, in Lower Saxony, is where the river Elbe flows into the North Sea, affecting the landscape with white sand dunes and beaches, mudflats and rich heath areas, woodland and moorland, and with tides that twice a day transform these surroundings completely, making it a unique location for renting a holiday home and for wonderfully peaceful walks, bicycle, and horse rides. Although it is one of the largest seaside resorts in Germany, it also has a small and quiet town ambiance, making it a special place for renting a summer cottage or for a winter holiday on the coast of the Wadden Sea, one of the Natural World Heritages named by UNESCO.

Things to do in Cuxhaven

Cuxhaven is wonderful in the summer months, but also spectacular in the winter. Enjoy walks and hikes, and brilliant sea activities in the summer, and feel the ice crunch under your horse’s feet, while you experience the stillness of low tides and the North Sea during winter. Whilst renting an apartment in Cuxhaven, enjoy a day out in Bremerhaven. Take the children to see the polar bears, penguins, and other sea life from underwater at the Zoo at the Sea. Visit the National German Maritime Museum, and hop aboard the highly innovative U-boat Wilhelm Bauer, built in 1943. Visit the Museum of Art, and the Historical Museum Bremerhaven. Be intrigued at the Phänomenta Science Center, or take an astonishing trip around the world to experience its climate at the Climate House® Bremerhaven 8° East. Otherwise enjoy the city from a different point of view and operate its bridges and roads yourself, at Model Town Bremerhaven. During your holiday in Cuxhaven, Dorum and Wremen are two nearby towns worth visiting, and the peaceful island of Heligoland makes for a perfect day out.

Places to see in Cuxhaven

Cuxhaven’s Wreck Museum offers a fascinating display of wreckage from the sea floor of one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes. To follow this, the children might enjoy a stop at Aeronauticum, the German Airship and Naval Aviation Museum. Have a stroll in the palace gardens of Ritzebüttel Castle, and make sure you see the beautiful half-timbered houses of the Old Town Otter Village. The Kugelbake beacon, which marks the northernmost point of Lower Saxony is a landmark of Cuxhaven, somewhat sharing the role of New York’s Statue of Liberty, as it was often the last memory of home seen by those leaving to migrate to the United States (for whom there is a museum in Bremerhaven). Worth a visit is Fort Kugelbake, a Prussian fortress built in 1869, at the mouth of the river Elbe, built to defend the shipping lane, and Bederkesa Castle, which is unique to the area.
