Discover a different side to Germany in Aurich

Forget bustling beer halls and Bavarian villages. Aurich is a district that will challenge everything you thought you knew about Germany. Maybe it's the long sandy beaches that line the East Frisian Islands, or the charismatic North Sea spa resorts strung along the coast? Perhaps it's the shimmering tidal flats, windswept lighthouses or chocolate box towns that hug the Dutch border? If you want to discover a different side of Germany, Aurich vacation rentals tick all the boxes. There are properties for every occasion, from cozy rural farmhouses to breezy oceanfront cottages.

Things to do

Family-friendly fun in Aurich

Aurich is dotted with characterful towns and villages, and finding your favorites is all part of the fun. Just a stone's throw from the Dutch border, Emden enchants visitors with wooden windmills, flower-strewn fields and shimmering canals. Don't miss the airy Kunsthalle gallery, which showcases 20th-century art from the likes of Beckmann, Heckel, Jawlensky and other masters. If you're traveling with kids, towns like Norden are filled with family-friendly attractions. You can gaze up at a sperm whale skeleton at the Waloseum, play mini golf at the Adventure Park and pet exotic animals at Birgit's Tiergarten.

Activities

Escape to Aurich's East Frisian Islands

It's hard to resist the allure of the East Frisian Islands. The archipelago sits off the coast of Lower Saxony and lures visitors with sandy beaches, coastal towns and stunning seascapes. Norderney, also crowned the "Queen of the East Frisian Islands", was one of Europe's first North Sea resorts. Over the centuries, the island has lured a string of Crown Princes, Chancellors and aristocrats. Want to join the club? From beachfront apartments to family-sized villas, Aurich vacation rentals unlock access to the island. Spend your days basking on the beach, exploring coastal trails and soaking in "thalassotherapy" seawater pools.
