In about 45 minutes you reach the Wadden island of your choice. On the ferry dam of Schiermonnikoog, the bicycle that you may have reserved in advance is already available. A beautiful old train with wooden wagons departs from the ferry port on Borkum to the north of the island. On Schier a small village with fishermen's houses and quite a bit of entertainment, on Borkum a small town with stately Kurhausen on the North Sea.
