Dunes / DŁnen
Langeoog’s dunes might appear to mountain bikers, they’re strictly off
only as there is ongoing a rigorous and necessary program of dune
preservation. That said, there
are brick pathways throughout the dunes which are not especially
crowded even in the high season. Roses grow wild over
much of the area of the dunes, adding their fragrance and color to the
to the far
end of Langeoog, away from the
town, takes you by an old Meierei, or dairy farm.
It now serves refreshments and is a popular place for
island visitors to congregate.
rented a couple of
bikes in Langeoog town and took
the pathway shown below, stopped for some coffee at the Meierei
Ostende, and continued
from there on to the beach. From that vantage point, the neighboring
island of Spiekeroog is quite close.
