Where can one get a great breakfast in the morning?

"Where in Wangerland can I buy fresh rolls in the morning or get a nice breakfast with coffee?" (posted 07/01/2014)

The Wanger country consists of 26 villages, but everywhere there are bakeries or supermarkets where you can buy fresh bread or can have breakfast in the bakeries. If you could give me the exact place names, that would be fine and I could answer in more detail. Best regards, Steffi

The term Wangerland describes the collection of about 20 towns on the North Sea coast, the best known among them being Horumersiel and Hooksiel. The area is sparsely populated and far from the usual rush. There are many things to do, lots of sports, swimming, parasailing, surfing, sailing, water ski, meet-ups for runners, Nordic walking, etc. There are small museums informing about the area’s history, boat tours on tour ships or crayfish boats, an extensive program of musical events in summer, organ concerts in the churches and rock and pop open-air events. Among the favorite events are the Krabbenfest (crab festival) and the Heringstage (herring days) in Hooksiel. Nature lovers will enjoy the wadden sea, which was named world natural heritage only a few years ago. In October, for example, there are birding days. The North Sea islands with their respective mainland harbors are close by, as is Jever with its castle and brewery. If you can tell me anything more specific about the things you are interested in, I can gladly look up more. One should certainly not forget our clean air; Horumersiel is home to a rehabilitation clinic and 3 clinics treat mothers and children with diseases of the respiratory tract.

There is not much happening in the Wangerland, unless you are looking to get away from the noise and into the quiet. There are only a few fishermen’s villages; Hooksiel should perhaps be mentioned for its historic center and the mollusk museum. Perhaps also ‘Wangerland village’ which developed out of a former barracks, where one can find vacation apartments and houses, an artificial lake and a “play city” for adults and children.
