From the North Sea
Sit back and relax in this enchanting landscape: white beaches of fine sand on the North Sea
The modern spa centres offer a diverse service portfolio as a complement to the natural health gems of the outdoors. On a bike tour straight across the region, you'll discover the most enchanting side of Frisia's natural world, its culture and leisure activities. A total of 640 km of uniformly marked cycling paths predominantly far removed from the main roads offer a pleasant invitation to experience the Frisian landscape by bike. The pleasurable tour is complemented by a well-developed cycling infrastructure featuring biker refuges, rest and picnic areas as well as overview and information panels.
Pay a visit to the churches, witnesses to exceptional architectural design and where you'll find their splendid organs and precious altars. It's also worth taking a look inside one of the mills, which today are used in a wide range of ways e.g. as a museum of agricultural history in Jever, an old baker's shop in Accum, a Café in Stumpens or even to mill grains like in Ruttel.
At their festivals and markets, the long passed-down tradition once again comes to life. For those wanting to know more, just ask an authentic Frisian. Over a cup of tea or a locally brewed Frisian-tart Jever Pilsener, the Frisians will say a lot in only a few words.
City of Jever
Brewery, palace and the merry hustle and bustle - that's Jever. "Jever - friesisch herb" (Frisian-tart) sports the beer's label that is brewed right here in Jever. An exquisite sampling is a given of course! The dapper sleep town also presents itself as a tart, Frisian beauty. The centre being the palace with the massive keep. Today, it houses the Museum for Regional Culture boasting 60 exhibition rooms.
Catharine the Great once ruled over Jever, in the audience chamber, you'll also find a portrait of the Russian Tsaritsa. The pedestrian zone tempts with its quaint, petit shops and street cafés and in the so-called "Kattrepel", the blue-printer can be found hard at work in its museum workshop.
