Tips

  • Seahunter

    The small fishing village Ditzum is liked by cyclists. Whether on the return trip from the Rheiderland or the Dollart Route from the Netherlands.

    Ditzum always invites you to take a break, whether fish sandwiches, coffee and cake, ice cream or a delicious fish dish - here you can recharge your batteries.

    The small but wonderful and tranquil harbor town of Ditzum, situated on a terp, has only had around 600 inhabitants, here in the Rheiderland at the "Endje van de Welt" since it was founded around 800 AD. brought. Nevertheless, it is THE goal of every bike tour left along the Ems towards Dollart and Emden.
    But God and the world are also drawn to this small village from east of the Ems with its diverse, especially tea and fish-based delicacies around the harbor, church and mill.
    And that is also possible thanks to the meanwhile only remaining ferry that connects the Rheiderland with the "rest of the world", that is to say the rest of the republic. The only thing that has not been correct for several years, of course, since the demolition of the bridge at Weener and the resulting ferry connection. But this is another story.
    In any case, it is worthwhile to bring a little more time and not just the 15 minutes to the next ferry, which runs every hour to Emden. Here are the ferry times:
    ditzum-touristik.de/faehre-ditzum-petkum
    If you are planning a bike tour with ferry transport across the Ems, plan your tour so that you have enough time to see the place. So then:
    Park your bike and stroll a little through the town. Visit the church; drift through the narrow streets; climb the mill and enjoy a unique all-round view of the village, Dollart and the surrounding area; troll along the harbor; all of this is a pleasure.
    So stranger: Off to Ditzum!

    Very nice fishing port that exercises a bit of fishing romance. Sit down and enjoy a fish sandwich, taking in the flair before the ride continues ... nice moments.

    A very nice well-kept place with a small harbor. In the harbor there is a fish stall, where the freshly caught fish from the own boat is immediately marketed.

    With about 650 inhabitants and an area of 20.4 km ², the village is the second largest of the eleven Jemgumer districts. Because of its remote location in the northwestern corner of the Rheiderland, it is also known as "Endje van de Welt". Its Sielhafen with centuries-old continuity and one of the last functioning Siele are unique in East Frisia (Wikipedia).

    Ditzum is an ideal starting point for rallies both to NL and with the ferry across to the mainland....Greetsiel (Grandcafe definitely eat waffles :) + Leer is almost around the corner...The people on the ferry are always up for a snack and they know the difference between an eBike and a pedelec (see fare list)

    The picturesque harbor of Ditzum has been known nationwide at the latest since the ZDF has been shooting scenes from the crime series «Friesland» here at irregular intervals (since 2014). In the first two episodes of the series, the actor Tayfun Bademsoy played the harbor master Güneş Özlügül here.

    Quiet fishing village on the Ems - ideal for a break - coffee and fish rolls - everything was delicious

    Ditzum is an East Frisian fishing and harbor village on the south bank of the Unterems about 2 km from where it flows into the Dollart. It is located in the Rheiderland and has belonged to the municipality of Jemgum in the district of Leer since a municipal reform in 1973. [1] With about 700 inhabitants [2] and an area of 20.4 km², the village is the second largest of the eleven Jemgum districts. Because of its remote location in the north-western corner of the Rheiderland, it is also known as "Endje van de Welt". Its port with centuries-old continuity and one of the last functioning gates are unique in East Frisia. The historical connection between the terp settlement with windmill, Romanesque church and church tower in the form of a lighthouse (1846) as well as the port and the internal drainage through the Sieltief with its "chicken bridge" is still understandable and important today. This sets it apart from similarly structured terp tarts in the Unterems, which have often lost their original sluice port function due to the dike being moved forward. The Ems ferry stationed in Ditzum in the Emden district of Petkum is the last remaining Ems ferry on East Frisian soil.

    In the small town of Dizum, the world is still OK. Beautiful houses and a great little harbor with a fish cart complete the picture. Of course you can also visit one of the many restaurants that are here. The ferry to Emden leaves every half hour.

    The Fischhaus is located directly at Ditzumer Hafen. There you can eat delicious, fresh fish at fair prices. Would you like a quick fish roll? (Attention: Mondays are closed)

    Absolutely make a stop in the old ferry house. The coffee tastes great. And a piece of cake completes the visit.

    Nice harbor with many fishing boats and a fish trade in the harbor area. There are many restaurants in the village, especially for fish dishes. In the main season, however, it is quite crowded there, so reservations are likely to be necessary.

    The village of Ditzum was founded in the 8th century on a natural drainage trough. After the dyke was built (from 1000) the construction of a sewer became necessary. The first traditional wooden sewer construction took place in 1546. In 1752 the first massive sewer construction with a width of 6.30 m was built. Today's sewer was built in 1890/91 with a width of over 7.00 m. As part of the new port construction in 1987/88, the sluice structure was renewed and technically brought up to date, so that the sluice port is still fully functional today.

    Ditzum, nice little dreamy crab fishing place, with the special flair.
    Many small cafes and restaurants invite you to eat, relax or just have a flambé.
    For me, the fresh crab roll out of hand is the greatest pleasure and the seagulls screaming in the background trying to make their prey.
