The climate of East Frisian Islands (Germany)
The East Frisian Islands are part of the island chain off the Dutch
and German north coast. The German islands are situated between the
mouths of the rivers Ems and Jade/Weser. The islands are located in
the Wadden Sea. In total, 13 islands belong to Germany of which 7
are inhabited and 6 are uninhabited. All the islands have a very
rich nature. The largest part of the islands are a nature reserve.
The inhabited islands are: Borkum, Juist, Nordenney, Baltrum,
Langeoog, Spiekeroog and Wangerooge. The uninhabited islands are:
Lutje Horn, Kachelotplate, Memmert, Minsener Oldoog and Alte Mellum.
The islands of Nordeney and Borkum are frequented most by tourists.
On these islands many hotels, spas and other facilities are
situated. The other islands are more suitable for those who like
peace and quiet. The East Frisian Islands have a maritime climate
strongly influenced by the wind. During the summer the wind offers
cooling causing it to be cooler on the islands than on the mainland.
Because of an ever blowing wind precipitation figures are fairly
low. Showers are always short lived. During fall it may be stormy on
the islands. This may make walks along the beach very spectacular.
