    • Car parking Puttgarden

      Puttgarden Aug 4, 2015 at 6:49 AM

      We will be taking the ferry to Rodby on Saturday for a cycling holiday in Denmark. We need a parking place for our car in or close to Puttgarden for about 2 weeks. Any advice or recommendation for a suitable and not too expensive car park would be much appreciated. Thanks!

      Postcards and Stamps

      by JHR Online Now Aug 26, 2013 at 4:05 PM

      If all goes to plan, I will be on Helgoland next Wednesday. I would like to send my 'holiday postcards' to friends and family from Helgoland. I suspect there will be quite a few shops selling postcards, but...Questions: Given its special status, does Helgoland issue its own stamps, or 'special issue' decorative stamps? And will I have to locate the post-office on the island in order to buy stamps?

      Day-trip to Helgoland, by catamaran from Hamburg

      by JHR Online Now Jul 1, 2013 at 3:46 PM

      I will be flying into Hamburg first week in September: my plan is to spend two days in Hamburg before heading off on a bummel, either North (Luebeck, Kiel, Schleswig) or East (Ratzeburg, Schwerin, Wismar). Anyway, while in Hamburg I would like to take an excursion to Helgoland. I can find the website for services available and prices (helgoline.frs.eu/booking/ind...), but I can't see the 'small print', i.e. terms and conditions. Questions: Is the catamaran service ever cancelled due to bad weather? If it is cancelled, can you get a refund? (because I could not change my day of travel). If I don't pre-book my tickets on-line, what are the chances that the catamaran service (on Tues 3rd Sept) could sell out? Assuming I get to Helgoland...I have read about its duty-free status. Can you buy alcohol, specifically decent aquavit, there? Any problems taking duty-free products from Helgoland into Germany and then back to the UK? Thanks for any advice.

    • Swimming in Helgoland

      When is the best time for swimming at Helgoland's beaches? Did you find the water pleasant and warm enough for swimming?

      Best regards,
