    A nice, small town with an old port that makes the place something special. Cafés, beer gardens, restaurants - everything loads
    to linger. With the view of the old harbor of Carolinensiel, tea, coffee and a piece of cake taste particularly good. And so, with a little imagination, you can imagine the hustle and bustle in the old harbor.

    The port of Carolinensiel
     Origin of the Sielhafen
    Place namesake: Princess Sophie Caroline, wife of Georg Albrecht von Ostfriesland
    Sculpture in the old port of Carolinensiel. It symbolizes the "Cliner Wind"

    A few centuries ago there was a foothill of the North Sea where Carolinensiel is today. The Harlebucht stretched between today's Neuharlingersiel and Minsen until just before Funnix and Werdum. Around 1500, systematic land reclamation by dike began. Bit by bit, the North Sea was wrested from new, fertile marshland.

    Pretty little harbor, in which also older ships lie. Here you can also go by paddle steamer. You can have a nice stop around the harbor.

    The museum harbor is worth a walk, especially in winter with the large illuminated Christmas tree.

    Carolinensiel museum harbor
    Carolinensiel used to be right by the sea. The museum harbor in the town center still testifies to this today. In its heyday in the 18th and 19th centuries, it was the second largest East Frisian port and trading port. Today, with the traditional flat-bottom sailors anchored here and the historic building ensemble of the German Sielhafenmuseum, it is a place with a special charm and maritime flair.

    The captain's house from 1803 is part of the Sielhafenmuseum in Carolinensiel and shows "life on land". Good parlor and kitchen give an impression of the everyday life of the captain's family. Port pharmacy and seaman's pub extend the view of the port.

    Other houses and the museum harbor also belong to the Sielhafenmuseum: deutsches-sielhafenmuseum.de

    In 1666, Princess Christine Charlotte of Ostfriesland and Lord of Jever, Count Anton Günther of Oldenburg, agreed on the future border to avoid conflicts over the new country. From the meeting point of the East Frisian and Yever dykes at the dike south-east of Carolinensiel, a line was drawn on the nautical chart with gold ink to a point exactly between the islands of Spiekeroog and Wangerooge. The "Golden Line" is still the border between the East Frisian district of Wittmund and the district of Friesland. The old railway line (Jever Bf - Harle Bf) of the former Grand Ducal Oldenburg State Railways (GOE) to Harlesiel and the ferry pier to Wangerooge are already in Frisian territory because they were used to connect the Frisian / Oldenburg island of Wangerooge. The border runs through the middle of the harbor basin.

    The harbor is structurally beautiful. There are old ships in the harbor that take you back in time to another century. Also a paddle steamer invites.

    Unlike many other places here is the harbor still framed by old houses and has, with the many historic ships, a great atmosphere!
