Helgoland Cruise

Let the coloured buildings surprise you
Helgoland is a long, narrow, red sandstone German island that we will come to along the route of the MSC Cruise of Northern Europe.

Once an important naval base, Helgoland was occupied by the British for a long time, and it effectively became German only at the end of the 19th century. Bombed during the second world war, the British tried to eliminate it from nautical maps by using it as a firing ground for the RAF even after the war.
Today, as you will see during your MSC Cruise, Helgoland is a popular tourist destination divided into a lower part (Unterland) and a higher part (Oberland). First you will see the buildings of the port, where ships coming from the continent lay anchor, the sanatorium and the town hall. An interesting site to visit is the Aquarium BiologischeAnstalt in Kurpromenade, dedicated to marine fauna and flora of the North Sea.
And thanks to the Gulf Stream, the fauna and flora of these lands is truly unique. The villages on the island are characteristic and picturesque with the most colourful homes. A thermal springs oasis, Helgoland is in fact formed
