Camping by the sea

The campsite on the North Sea beach in Dornumersiel

North Sea camping between the dyke and the Wadden Sea

Welcome to one of the most beautiful campsites on the North Sea, right in the middle between dykes, beach and the UNESCO World Heritage Wadden Sea. With us you will spend quiet and natural holidays. We've even envented a word for ist - FREILENZEN. Derived from the German words for leisure time and lazing about, it's a way of live. Nevertheless, you are not far off the beaten path - the fishing port and the town center with shops and restaurants are very close. In addition to 100 permanent parking spaces, there are 200 more for caravans and mobile homes, as well as 60 tent spaces. The sanitary facilities are modern, barrier-free and family-friendly. In the morning there is fresh bread on request. If the North Sea is still too cold - the entry to the heated open sea water pool next door is included.

  • Cozy campsite in front of a fascinating natural backdrop

  • A wide range of overnight accommodations: from caravans, mobile homes and tents to pipo wagons and North Sea carts

  • Modern equipment of the sanitary buildings Barke and Boje. The Boje is equipped with a children's bath

  • The largest kite spot on the East Frisian North Sea coast

  • Just a short hop to the North Sea islands of Baltrum and Langeoog


    As a certified North Sea bath, Dornumersiel offers many applications with the power of the sea, whether in the therapy & wellness center, in the outdoor pool or in the inhalation house
