Bensersiel, the North Sea spa.

Green dykes, small stores, restaurants and the marina characterize the idyllic townscape. The ferry port offers daily tide-independent crossings to the island of Langeoog. The Nordseetherme spa and outdoor seawater pool are wellness centers and offer fun and relaxation for young and old alike. Leisure activities include the beach adventure playground, beach volleyball courts, soccer pitches and tennis courts, and the "Watten-Eye " Ferris wheel - almost everything is located directly between the harbor and the beach. Cyclists can look forward to a network of over 200 km of cycle paths, which are part of the international North Sea cycle path system. Numerous excursion destinations in the surrounding area guarantee a wonderfully varied vacation in East Frisia directly on the North Sea.

Esens, the old chieftain town

An idyllic small town with a picturesque city center.

Esens is located in the middle of the vast East Frisian countryside with lots of nature, old churches, mills and healthy air. The town belongs to the East Frisian district of Wittmund. It is only a short drive of around 5 kilometers to the North Sea and Bensersiel . Esens has just under 7,000 inhabitants today.

The former chieftain's town has developed into a pretty, colorful and lively shopping town that invites you to store, stroll and linger. A visit to Esens from the Hotel " MeerZeiten" is perfect as a day trip (even in bad weather) for the whole family. There is also a picturesque cycle path between Bensersiel and Esens.
