Holidays in animal company!

Dogs are welcome

Cuxhaven is happy about every four-legged friend. But because many allergy sufferers spend their holidays in Cuxhaven, especially among the children, it is important to be considerate of each other.

Dogs have their own territory on the dog beaches and are also welcome in many restaurants (see list below).

Dogs must be kept ona leash on the dikes, in the dike foreland and on the mudflats.
Inprinciple, dogs must be kept and handled in such a way that they do not pose a threat to public safety and order.

Act responsibly and follow the rules and instructions!

Dog beaches

There are signposted beach sections for holidaymakers with leashed dogs:

  • Altenbruch, lido
  • Grimmershörn, at the buoy bath
  • Grimmershörn Bay, beach access Spa park
  • Kugelbake, dog beach section (only during high season)
  • Sahlenburg, sandy beach, access Wernerwaldstraße

Dogs are prohibited at all other beach sections during the main season (see current guest fee regulations of the city of Cuxhaven, there season A)!

Dog Free Zones

A dog exercise area is located on the meadow below the dike crest between the Steinmarne open-air seawater swimming pool and the Düne1 restaurant(Döse district).
Further free-walking areas will be set up near the castle park and south of the Ritzebüttel market square.

Beach promenades & dike crest

From Alte Liebe to Duhnen you are allowed to walk your leashed dog on the dike crest.

Outside the main season (see current guest fee statutes of the city of Cuxhaven, there season A), all promenades, sandy and green beaches, as well as Grimmershörnbucht, may be walked with dogs.

The ordinance on safety and cleanliness of the city of Cuxhaven must be observed, leashes are compulsory!

Dogs on the mudflats

The mudflat Sea off the coast of the North Sea spa Cuxhaven is protected as the "mudflat Sea National Park".
The following access points to the tidal flats can be used free of charge by guests with leashed dogs during the tidal flats' running times (from three hours before low tide in each case):

  • Duhnen, mudflat car ramp beach access Panoramahaus
  • Döse, height kitesurfing beach
  • Sahlenburg, beach access rescue station

Dog walking trails

Note on the surroundings and the city area: Suitable hiking trails for dog-walkers are located in the area of the Cuxhavener Küstenheide and in the Wernerwald. Dogs must be kept on a leash!

Dog toilet

It goes without saying that the dog's waste must be removed and disposed of by the dog handler!
The Nordseeheilbad Cuxhaven GmbH provides 38 dog toilet stations with bags and waste containers from Altenbruch to Sahlenburg for this purpose. These bags are exclusively intended for removing the dog's waste.

Accommodation for dog owners

Pet-friendly accommodation for holidays with your dog can be found in the current host directory marked with a corresponding pictogram. Please contact the landlord before booking or arriving!
You can enquire online or book your pet-friendly accommodation immediately using the theme search on this link.
