    We all sea what we want to sea in Cuxhaven

    Pack your sunscreen and swimsuit, and get ready for a relaxing trip to scenic Cuxhaven. A charming town on Germany's North Sea coast, Cuxhaven has been a popular seaside resort since the early 19th century. Visitors flock to the area for its wide, sandy beaches and impressive number of offshore islands, as well as its lively, historic downtown dotted with shops, restaurants, and bars. Your Cuxhaven vacation rental will put you within a stone's throw of local sights like the Kugelbake navigation tower, the historic Schloss Ritzebuettel castle, and the Alte Liebe pier.

    You gotta dune what you gotta dune in Cuxhaven

    We'll get right to it: Cuxhaven is a major destination for beachgoers, and with good reason. The broad, sandy shoreline along the North Sea features plenty of space to get your bake on, as well as grassy dunes and a number of colorful shelters. Windsurfing is a popular pastime in the area, and you'll also find ample opportunities for swimming, boating, and kayaking in the bay. Nearby, the Cuxhavener Kustenheiden preserve is a hit with nature lovers. Here, you'll find a series of sprawling coastal heaths that are home to a number of endangered plant and animal species.

    Cuxhaven—we'll leave the light on for you

    At the UNESCO World Heritage Wadden Sea Visitor Centre Cuxhaven, you'll find loads of information about the city's natural history, as well as nature trails and guided tours of the tidal flats. The iconic Kugelbake is a popular—and definitely Instagram-worthy—destination for visitors. The wooden structure sits in a shipping channel at the mouth of the Elbe River, and serves as a lighthouse for the countless boats that pass through during the busy season. Or you can get a feel for days gone by at Schloss Ritzebuettel, a 14th-century castle that's open to the public.

    Colorful Cuxhaven's cool coastal climate

    Cuxhaven has a maritime climate, which means relatively cool summers, mild-to-cold winters, and regular rainfall throughout the year. Summer highs peak around 70 degrees between June and August, while the relatively chilly winter temperatures range from the high 20s to the upper 30s in December, January, and February. Since it's a popular destination for beachgoers during the summer, the colder winter months will likely prove to be your best bet for scoring low rates. A Cuxhaven vacation rental with a hot tub or a fireplace could be just the right recipe for a cozy winter break.

    From the forest to the sea in Cuxhaven

    Cuxhaven lies at the mouth of the Elbe River where it flows into the North Sea.

The scenic Cuxhavener Kustenheiden nature preserve boasts more than 1,900 acres of rolling hillside near the coast, and serves as protected habitat for endangered species like the moor frog and the sand lizard, as well as several types of local and migratory birds.
