More about the History of Hooksiel
Hooksiel was the first time as
the uppe Hoek mentioned in 1479. The city soon became a transshipment port for the nearby city clerk Jever and thus the entire county developed. The old port was then remodeled several times to keep up with changing ships. After the completion of the
Nee Straat in 2008, a short section of the
Long Road was built specifically for the peak season for a trial pedestrian.
