    The cycle route from Norddeich to Greetsiel runs along the coast.
    Is car and barrier-free, the doors along the tour, for the sharp-firing
    the dike are no problem.

    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.

    Greetsiel beautiful little dreamy crab fishing village, with the special flair.
      Many small cafes and restaurants invite you to eat, to relax, or just to flambé.
      For me, the fresh crab bread from the hand is the biggest pleasure and the seagull screaming in the background trying to make their prey.

    Greetsiel looks back over more than 650 years of history. In letters from the year 1388 (Ocko I. tom Brok) Greetsiel is mentioned for the first time in a document. Hamburg ships were then at anchor in the port of Greetsiel and had to pay customs (Wikipedia).

Via dike roads and dirt roads, you can leisurely cycle through the villages of Krummhörn Most villages in the Krummhörn are built on Rundwarften (mounds for protection against the flood), on whose highest point the church stands.

    A very nice to hike or wheeled section. Both on the sea side (especially recommended) and on the land side of the dike.

    The originally flat beam ceiling was later replaced by a wooden barrel vault and in 1852 by a slightly arched mirror ceiling. As a Protestant-Reformed preaching church dispenses the present church on the cross and altar. The center of the church is the pulpit from 1669. It shows flower garlands in baroque carving. Inside, above the east entrance, is the organ gallery. Above the west entrance of the church is the family crest of the Cirksenas from Greetsiel as well as the coat of arms of the Swedish royal house Wasa, to which the Cirksenas were connected through marriage. On the west side of the church is another gallery built, which is decorated with Bible verses.
    Next to the pulpit is an epitaph made of bluestone, reminiscent of the deceased in 1684 preacher Johann Michael Knottner. Above the coat of arms with helmet and visor, which shows two birds with branches in their beak, a Latin inscription is appropriate, according to which Knottner fled from the Palatinate and six years preacher in Pilsum was, before he served 39 years in Greetsiel and died at 69 years ,

    Greetsiel, always worth a visit. The two windmills in place (not visited here), are a tourist magnet and offer in addition to the sightseeing, all around dining and shopping for dit and dat. The harbor and the buildings around the harbor with original buildings are well maintained and look just pretty out. Again, many restaurants different Coleur and price, in which for every hungry something is. The restaurant "Zum alten Siel" stands out with a rich offer of fish dishes.
