    The Lummenfelsen on Helgolands south side is the only rock face in the German Bight, and thus the only habitat for seabirds breeding in the rock.
    The bird colonies are an impressive spectacle accompanied by the screeching and confusion of seabirds. In a relatively small space more than 10,000 pairs of birds breed here. Kites (7000) and guillemots (2500) are the strongest species, and there are only a handful of razorbills and fulmars. Since the beginning of the 90s, the gannets have been added.

    Nowhere else do you get that close to the brooding birds. Very impressive.

    Beautiful place to get so close to the animals. Of course also very crowded with people, so you have only a short time to get ahead.

    Lumbles are available here from May to July. It is especially spectacular when the parents birds lure their boys to jump into the depths. By the way, kids can NOT fly at this point, so it's a real adventure.
