Worth seeing corners on holiday in Wilhelmshaven: Harbour and Südstrand
If you decide to spend your holiday in Wilhelmshaven, you will be looking forward to one thing above all: the sea! You can enjoy this in a variety of ways in the city, which today is probably the most important location for the German Navy. Either you stroll along the harbour or you start a trip with the ferry.
Of course there is also the possibility for a classic beach holiday in summer. The famous south beach was created in 1929. It has a beach promenade, dikes and of course plenty of sand. Numerous refreshment facilities and an aquarium popular with children make the south beach in Wilhelmshaven complete.
Historical Wilhelmshaven: Sightseeing on holiday
Stroll along historical paths and discover sights in Wilhelmshaven such as the Kaiser Wilhelm Bridge. It is the city's landmark and a special feature: it is a swing bridge. If a ship wants to cross the passage under the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Bridge, it does not fold up but turns away to the side.
Another sight not to be missed during your holiday in Wilhelmshaven is the town hall, which was built in 1929. This is known as the "castle by the sea" by local connoisseurs, not least because of its striking town hall tower. The Church of Christ and Garrison Church is also one of the sights in Wilhelmshaven that should be on your list. Inside, for example, there is a memorial to former victims of the navy.
Experience museums around the sea on holiday in Wilhelmshaven
Close to the Kaiser Wilhelm Bridge, the Naval Museum is located in a listed building dating from 1888 in the connecting harbour and shows visitors the history of the navy in Germany. If you like, you can start a harbour tour directly from the Naval Museum.
On the southern beach of Wilhelmshaven you will get your money's worth when it comes to "marine education". Here you will find the Wilhelmshaven Aquarium, which presents itself as a special prehistoric sea museum with fossils. And in the Wadden Sea Visitor Centre you can experience the famous UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site and its animal inhabitants.
Lake Banter and City Park: Excursions in Wilhelmshaven
In addition to the North Sea, an alternative bathing option awaits you in Wilhelmshaven with the Banter Lake. On a gently sloping sandy beach, you can swim here safely if the North Sea waves should ever be too high. Surfers, divers and sailors also have fun there in an idyllic setting.
Close to nature it continues in the north as well: Störtebeker Park is a city park near Wilhelmshaven, which proves to be an exciting place to explore for young and old. Between the herb garden, wetland biotope and water mountain for the children, a relaxing balance to sightseeing on holiday in Wilhelmshaven can be created.
Marktstraße vs. North Sea Passage:
If you would like to shop in Wilhelmshaven, you have plenty of opportunity to do so. For example, you can stroll along the traffic-calmed Marktstraße, which should cover all shopping preferences with its privately run boutiques and art shops, branches of well-known chains and department stores. Alternatively, fill your pockets in the Nordsee-Passage. Shopping in Wilhelmshaven experienced a new upswing in 1997 thanks to the shopping facilities opened at that time.
Versatile gastronomy in Wilhelmshaven: More than just fish!
The gastronomy in Wilhelmshaven attracts visitors primarily with fish dishes. However, other North German specialities are not to be found in vain in the city of Lower Saxony: how about the potato dish Labskaus or fresh asparagus depending on the season?
Moreover, you usually dine in a paradise setting, as many restaurants have a sun terrace facing the harbour or the sea. You can also enjoy a view of the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Bridge in many refreshment stops.
On foot or by bike on holiday in Wilhelmshaven
Since Wilhelmshaven is one of the smaller cities, you can easily explore the sights on foot. Some parts of the city, such as Marktstraße and the beach promenade, are closed to motorised traffic anyway. Alternatively, we recommend renting a bicycle.
The public transport in Wilhelmshaven is not too broad with six bus lines. Tourists can, however, use all the buses of the Stadtwerke for five euros per person and day thanks to the TouristCard. The three-day card is a little cheaper with a total of twelve euros, and there are also special family rates.
Directions to Wilhelmshaven
For an overnight stay in Wilhelmshaven or a longer holiday, it is best to arrive by car or train. You can reach Wilhelmshaven by car via the A29. If you arrive by train, you will have to change trains at least once, as Wilhelmshaven is not connected to the long-distance network of the Deutsche Bahn. An alternative are long-distance buses, which start their journey in many a large German city.
