Seaside resort ship

The special thing about a trip to Helgoland is immediately apparent at the beginning: if you take the ship, the relaxation begins immediately. And there are many ways to reach the island by ship. From Cuxhaven, for example, you can go to Helgoland all year round.

The passenger ship MS “Helgoland” of the shipping company Cassen Eils:
MS “Helgoland” (commissioned December 2015) is equipped with a virtually emission-free (liquefied natural gas) LNG propulsion system and also features dynamic stabilizers that significantly reduce rolling behavior in rough seas.
In addition, passengers are no longer “traditionally” disembarked from the ship, but it docks directly in the island’s southern harbor. This makes boarding and disembarking easy and comfortable, even for guests with strollers and wheelchair users.

In the season there are additional connections with seaside ships from Büsum (shipping company Adler-Eils) as well as from Bremerhaven and on selected dates from Hooksiel (shipping company Cassen Eils).

High-speed ferry

The catamaran “Halunder Jet” of FRS Helgoline:
Since its christening in April 2018, the catamaran “Halunder Jet” has been sailing at a top speed of up to 35 knots (65 km/h) from Hamburg via Cuxhaven to Helgoland, where it docks directly in the southern harbor. Guests can also reach the high seas island with strollers or wheelchairs via a gangway. A modern MDS compensates for ship movements during this crossing to make the trip comfortable. From March to early November, this option is available.

During the season, the catamaran “MS Adler-Cat” also sails from Hörnum/Sylt to Helgoland from Monday to Friday. There are feeder ships for this from various other North Frisian islands and the North Frisian coast (shipping company Adler-Schiffe).


The fastest way to get to Helgoland is certainly the “air jump” over the sea. Year-round connections by plane are currently available from Cuxhaven/Spieka, Heide/Büsum and from 01.04.2022 Uetersen/Hamburg.


Or you can take a look at Wingly, Europe’s largest flight-sharing service. Especially from Hamburg and Bremen, day trips to Helgoland are offered here with pleasure.

Cruises to Heligoland

Cruises with elegant, modern luxury ships that leave nothing to be desired in terms of comfort and service are very much in vogue. In addition to the port cities on the North Sea and Baltic Sea such as Hamburg, Esbjerg, Warnemünde, Copenhagen and many others, you can also get to know the island of Helgoland on your sea voyage. Interest aroused? Surely you will find a voyage with destinations you have always wanted to experience; and Helgoland is often among them!
