Helgoland

Recommended
Located in a stretch of the North Sea renowned for the strength of its currents and its unpredictable climate, the Helgoland archipelago was under Danish control for a long period, before falling into the hands of the British in 1814. It was finally won by the Germans in exchange for Zanzibar. Each year thousands of tourists visit out the island's red sandstone cliffs, 70km from the mouth of the Elbe, attracted by the prospect of a cruise on the high seas.
