Make a self catering apartment or holiday rental in Greetsiel, German your home away from home

The delightful village of Greetsiel is a picturesque port in Lower Saxony. Although the village has only 1500 residents it attracts many visitors to enjoy its charming old fishermen’s cottages.

Things to Do in Greetsiel, Lower Saxony

The long dike protecting holiday rentals in Greetsiel is perfect for walking or long bicycle rides. It is called the Leybuchthorn and extends out into the Wadden Sea creating a protected waterway with splendid views of the North Sea and the boats from the top. Around the pleasant village there are small shops for browsing and cafés and restaurants for good food. The town has a swimming pool, spa and a children’s playground making it ideal for families. Historic buildings of note to visit include the Greetsiel Church which dates back to 1380. It has a small spire topped with a weather vane in the shape of a ship and it has a clock on one side. The Steinhaus is a renovated house on Hohe Strasse which was rebuilt in 1600 on foundations thought to date back to 1390. Other delightful sights are the cottages alongside the harbour with bell-shaped gables that are far more Dutch then German. In summer there are several festivals in the village including the Greetsiel art exhibition and the mid-summer boat parade.
