    Greetsiel simply has a beautiful town center. Historic houses, small shops and a cozy, East Frisian gastronomy.

    The picture-book village Greetsiel in East Frisia is a wonderful travel destination for a vacation on the North Sea in Germany. Stroll through cobblestone streets past idyllic brick houses to the harbor. East Friesland's largest fleet of shrimp cutters is located here. With a little luck you can watch the fishermen unloading.

    At the harbor below right on the water at the fishing boats the little fish stall has the best fish sandwiches I have ever eaten.

    Alone the Sielstraße directly at the harbor is an architectural feast for the eyes. Especially houses No. 11, dated 1741, and No. 15, built in 1792.

    Greetsiel is a really nice old place on the Leybucht. Historic buildings shape the townscape. Nice shops and restaurants invite you. You can also rent boats on the canal and see the area from the water. From Greetsiel there is a nice hike through the nature reserve, in which many bird species can be observed.

    The Leysiel lock, which separates the fishing port from the open North Sea, has existed since 1991. Up to eight cutters can be passed through here at the same time. This means that the Greetsieler Hafen is independent of the tide, the ebb and flow of the tide "stay outside". The old Sieltor is over 200 years old and a popular meeting place for Greetsiel guests. This is where the Greetsieler Sieltief flows out.

    With 25 shrimp cutters that regularly head for the picturesque harbor in the fishing village of Greetsiel, Greetsiel is home to the largest fleet of cutters in East Frisia. In addition to the main catch, the North Sea crabs, which are also known as "garnets", the cutters also catch small quantities of flatfish such as plaice, shags and sole. The historic port is now over 600 years old.

    Whoever comes to Greetsiel is captivated by the magical sight of a doll's house with historic gabled houses from the 17th century, the 600-year-old fishing port with its impressive fleet of shrimp cutters, the famous Greetsiel twin mills and picturesque alleys.

    Nowhere is East Frisia more rustic and typical than here: Gulf yards, windmills, chieftain's castles, the tallest and one of the smallest and most famous lighthouses in Germany - the Pilsum lighthouse - and the vastness of the landscape.
    Here you can relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. There is a varied offer for active vacationers. Whether on horseback, by bike, in a boat or canoe, on signposted Nordic walking routes - the Krummhörn can be explored in a variety of ways.
    Feeling good is the motto of the "oasis" in Greetsiel with a swimming pool, various sauna areas and other health offers.

    Pretty little harbor with fishing boats like from another time. The harbor is surrounded by small houses of the old town center. From the harbor you can walk nicely into the nature reserve.

    With 25 crab-cutters, who regularly drive to the romantic harbor of Greetsiel, here is the largest cutter fleet in Ostfriesland. In addition to the main catch, the crabs, which are actually called garnet, are also landed in small quantities and flatfish such as plaice, coarse and sole. The historic harbor is over 600 years old.
    Here you breathe history and seafaring romance in a unique environment of charming historic gabled houses and idyllic lanes. And: you enjoy pure sea air!
    Since 1991, there is the lock Leysiel, which separates the fishing port and the marina from the open North Sea. Up to eight cutters can be passed through here at the same time. Thus Greetsieler Hafen is tide independent, high and low tide "stay outside". The old Sieltor is over 200 years old and a popular meeting place for Greetsiel guests. Here the Greetsieler Sieltief flows.

    The cutter fleet at Greetsieler Hafen is one of the largest in East Frisia. Excursion boat brings guests up to the lock on the Leyhörn.
    At the harbor are the oldest houses of the place.

    In winter, it is a little more tranquil and quiet in the small fishing village Greetsiel.
    But not less interesting. Not all shops are open, but the Grand Cafe, for example, is open all year. and some other restaurants.
    Even in winter it has its charm.

    The largest fleet of cutters in East Frisia is based in the port of Greetsiel. Around 30 cutters have moored here at times. Shell catchers, excursion steamers, Dutch tjalks and a sailing boat harbor complete the picture. The port itself is independent of the tide.
