Husum, Hattstedt, Nordstand Island Pellworm Island
Save

I am considering a trip to this area where a family geneology study indicates our Johannsen family roots originated. I assume we would fly to Hamberg and travel to this area by car.

Has anyone traveled in this area?Any travel tip or lodging reccomendations. This wil be my fisrt trip to Europe and I want to make the most of it. Please advise.

Nordstrand and Pellworm are rests of the much larger island Strand

Strand was cut from the mainland in a big flood in 1362

and destroyed by another big flood in 1634

other remains are the Halligen

There are four villages named Hamberg in Germany but none of them has an airport. Try Hamburg.
