  • Raubach

    The lumbles are sea birds, which are widespread in the northern hemisphere. Only at hatching time do they stay on the coasts.

    Since the local gannets have already lost their fear of humans, you can observe them here from close range. Should it be too crowded at this point, you will also have the opportunity to attend the partly noisy spectacle in one of the following bays.

    Since 1991 Helgoland is the only breeding colony of the impressive seabirds in the North Sea. The Gannet is definitely worth a walk on Heligoland's shores. In 2016 he was the bird of the year.
