Winter campers enjoy ski slopes and cross-country trails, but also attractions that are particularly fun in winter. Enjoy thermal baths or wellness or explore museums and exhibitions. For more sporty activities, there are tips for snowshoe tours or hiking, and this doesn’t necessarily have to be in the mountains; the sea and mudflats have a special charm in winter.

For the really hardcore campers, we recommend bathing in the ice water in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, which really gets the circulation going. To ensure that your motorhome can cope with your winter trip without a hitch, here are some tips for winter-proofing your motorhome.

© North Sea Spa Cuxhaven

Hiking in the mudflats. Equipped with a thick anorak, rubber boots and warm socks.

Glittering ice surfaces, ice-cold wind, the sandy ground crunching underfoot with every step. When the water has gone, the Wadden Sea offers a world full of wonders even in the cold season. What is one of the most popular holiday activities on the North Sea in summer – barefoot and with sunglasses – is also possible in winter: hiking in the mudflats. Equipped with a thick anorak, rubber boots and warm socks, you can experience the landscape of mud and silt with all the leftovers of the sea alone or in a group.

What does the lugworm do in winter, how do mussels survive, and where have all the crabs gone? If you want to know whether and how the animals in the Wadden Sea survive the cold season, the best thing to do is to follow one of the mudflat guides who regularly offer expert excursions into the mudflats between November and April. And with a bit of luck, you might even spot one or two of the Wadden Sea creatures.
