The tugboat honks at breakfast, the container-laden ocean liner passes by while you're sunbathing, and the Veermaster greets you in the evening.
Welcome to Grimmershörn! The maritime magic is omnipresent here: a walk to the Alte Liebe, the ever-popular viewing platform, is always worthwhile. The ship reporting service informs you about passing ships. From the ferry harbour you can take the "MS Helgoland" to Helgoland. The do-micile of the local sailors and their guests is the yacht harbour, starting point of the largest German high sea regatta, the North Sea Week. By the way: The completely renovated Bürgerbahnhof is expected to shine in new splendour as early as 2019 and will be a central information point for guests and citizens.
Those who spend their holidays here are very close to the ships. The ensemble of red-roofed pavilions directly on the sea with the maritime playground for children invites you to linger. The sailing and yacht harbours, the maritime school, the ferry port, the Alte Liebe, the lightship "Elbe 1", the fishing port, the pilot quarter, the city centre, the Rin-gelnatz Museum and Ritzebüttel Castle are also within easy reach from here.
Grimmershörnbucht is a popular meeting place and the "living room" of the people of Cuxhaven in summer. This is where they celebrate with their guests and enjoy the romantic sunset together over a glass of wine with a magnificent view of the world shipping route.
But the bay is also a popular meeting place for "bay sharks", because here you can have an excellent swim in the North Sea. Directly behind the dyke, small hotels, town villas, guesthouses, guesthouses and pubs are lined up, from where you can easily walk across the dyke in your bathrobe for an early morning swim.
Once a year, you can experience "great cinema" in the bay. Enjoy the atmosphere at the "Summer Evening by the Sea" when music plays under the open sky, the big ships pass by in the background on the world shipping route and holidaymakers and locals settle down for a picnic on the dyke to marvel at the brilliant high-altitude fireworks at nightfall.
