By the sea and near great cities
Knaus Campingpark Dorum is a quiet campsite in Dorum, Lower Saxony, located directly on the North Sea coast between Cuxhaven and Bremerhaven. From the campsite you have a beautiful view over the North Sea and the wadden landscape in front of it. The location of the campsite means that you can take lovely walks across the mudflats to the mussel and seal banks.
Watt’nbad and more…
For the sporty holidaymaker there are several cycling routes in the area (you can rent bikes at the campsite). You can swim in the North Sea and windsurfing is also permitted at the campsite. There is a mooring for boats. Right next to Knaus Campingpark Dorum is the wave pool ‘Watt’nbad’, consisting of a heated outdoor pool, a heated indoor pool, paddling pool and underwater sun loungers, as well as various sports fields, some wellness facilities and many indoor and outdoor playgrounds, including a pirate playground.
Trips to museums and Obereversand
A quarter of an hour’s drive away is Flughafen-Betriebsgesellschaft Cuxhaven/Nordholz, one of the oldest airports in Germany, opened in 1914. A trip to the Aeronauticum museum is definitely worth it.
Another interesting museum is located in Dorum itself. The Lower Saxon dike museum shows the history of dike construction on the Lower Saxon coast. When you’re in Dorum you shouldn’t miss a visit to the lighthouse Obereversand, the highest of the Wurster wadden light towers, which ensures that you have a beautiful view over the sea from the top.
You don’t have to cook for yourself as the campsite has a snack bar, restaurant with a small menu and a restaurant with an extensive menu. On the campsite you can also get fresh bread. The entire campsite is equipped with wifi and for the children there is also a playground. By the way, dogs (provided they are kept on a lead) are welcome throughout the season.
Beautiful towns in the area
A little further away, the cities of Oldenburg, Bremen, Stade and Hamburg are well worth a visit. Oldenburg has a large car-free city centre, very cosy. Bremen has a great city centre for shopping pleasure and a worth seeing ‘Altstadt’ with narrow alleys. Stade is an attractive architectural town with an enormous appeal. The metropolis of Hamburg has so many beautiful parts of the city that a visit lasting several days is in order.
