Journey Coordinator Invitation
Explore the North Sea Coast with FF Varel, Germany
July 7 to 14, 2019
My name is Birgit Wagner, and I invite you to join me and fellow members of Friendship Force of Varel, Germany this July as we explore the North Sea Coast! Varel is called a “city between water and forest” due to our coastal mudflats in harmony with the tides, and the unique fauna and flora of the area – which has been recognized as a UNESCO Natural Heritage site.
This Journey will be an excellent mix of outdoor activities and regional traditions, while ambassadors will enjoy a full week of home-hosting with the members of FF Varel.
Activities will include:

  • Cycling
  • Canoeing
  • Touring the Wadden Sea World Unesco Heritage Centre on foot

Cultural experiences will include:

  • Frisian tea tradition
  • Regional cooking
  • Local brewery visit
  • Visit of a typical Frisian windmill
A highlight of this Journey will be the day on the small island of Spiekeroog, a car-free East Frisian island with a coastal enclave and resort. As a frequent vacation destination for many German presidents, Spiekeroog is abundant with nature and charming sites, like a horse-drawn railway and small village center. We know ambassadors will particularly enjoy this day-trip.
We hope you will join us to explore our region – we have really built in many must-sees and must-dos into this week! Come and get to know this special area in Northern Germany. 

In friendship,
Birgit Wagner, President of FF Varel, Germany
FFI Board of Directors
