Beach holiday on the German Wadden Sea

Believe it or not, you can enjoy a beach holiday in Germany. This campsite is located directly on the North Sea, on the peninsula of Butjadingen. The German wadden region is a wonderful place for long walks. The beach of Knaus Campingpark Burhave is set on their 'Nordseelagune’ (North Sea Lagoon). This newly constructed natural pool is filled with seawater. A great place for swimming and relaxing on the beach. You've also come to the right place for a beach party or a movie night. Close to the campsite you will find a large play barn: a play paradise for children.

On the German Wadden Sea

Knaus Campingpark Burhave is situated on the German Wadden Sea, about 70 kilometres north of Bremen. This is the German north coast, the Butjadingen peninsula. The river Weser flows into the North Sea here, at Bremerhaven. Campsite Burhave is located directly by the sea, close to the National Park Wattenmeer. A lovely holiday destination for long walks on the beach and over the mudflats.

On the beach in Germany

The wadden region is not very suitable for swimming. But they thought of a solution for that at this campsite. They have constructed a brand new natural pool directly by the sea: the 'Nordseelagune'. This 1.6 hectare swimming pool is filled with seawater and is surrounded by a lovely sandy beach. The parasols give the beach an extra sunny touch. The beach slopes slowly into the water, so that even the youngest children can splash around safely. And another thing: Burhave is known for its clean air, clean beaches and environmental friendliness!

Children's play paradise

Fancy a party? The campsite hosts beach parties. In the evening you can watch a film together in the open-air cinema. The campsite itself is one large playground. The roads are perfect for go-karts. Is there a strong wind? Fly a kite! There's plenty of room to do this on the large lawns. At 200 meters from the campsite you will find a great indoor playground for children. Take your kids to this play barn. Here you can clamber up a volcano, jump on trampolines and do some bowling. Try fresh milk from the farm along the way. Speciality of the region: sheep's cheese from the sheep grazing on the dyke.

Happy families on the campsite

A fresh sea breeze, views over the grassy landscape and the mudflats ... At Knaus Campingpark Burhave you will feel free. There is plenty of room for guests on the extensive lawns. There are also mobile homes overlooking the Wadden Sea. It’s a stone’s throw from these homes to the beach. Enjoy a romantic sunset or stroll along the beach with an ice cream in your hand. It all contributes to that typical German feeling of ‘gemütlichkeit’; the contented warm feeling of being together.

Bremerhaven and Wilhemshaven

Outings in the area are also all about the sea and water. In Bremerhaven, three quarters of an hour’s drive from the campsite, you will find the German Maritime Museum. Combine a visit to the museum with a tour of the harbour, very interesting! In Wilhelmshaven, an hour's drive away, you will find the German Naval Museum. But be sure to also take the children to the aquarium. Here they can discover the marine life of the North Sea. The cosmopolitan city of Bremen is also worth a visit. You can be there in an hour by car.

Family with children, 4 – 12 years

Sehr schöne Lagre direkt an der Nordsee.Sanitäranlagen waren sauber aber stark renovierungsbedürftig.


Family with children, 4 – 12 years

Sehr schön gelegen sehr sauber alles super gewesen



Sehr nett aufgenommen worden! Alles sehr sauber.


Family with children <4 years

Alles soweit ok


Group of friends

Sehr angenehme Atmosphäre! Tolle Duschen. Der Chef ist allerdings nicht besonders freundlich, teilweise sehr unverschämt!


Family with children, various ages

Direkt am Meer, sehr kinderfreundlich und gute Schlechtwetteralternativen nebenan. Für uns einer der entspanntesten Urlaube, da kurze Wege (auch leckere Fischbrötchen) und die Kids sind stundenlang beschäftigt mit Toben auf dem Spielplatz oder im Watt.


Family with children, 4 – 12 years

Der Campingplatz - Teil Burhavesiel ist vom Hauptcampingplatz getrennt. Es gab keine Spülküche, keine Waschmaschinen und keinen Trockenraum für Wäsche. Das ist für Familien schon problematisch.



Wir standen auf dem Bremerplatz,
Zustand katastrophal


Family with children, 4 – 12 years

Negativ kein Abwaschplatz für Geschirr, keine Waschmaschinen, müllsituation schlecht, Stellplätze sind schlecht gepflegt und sehr uneben


Family with children, 4 – 12 years

Die Sanitären Anlagen benötigen dringend eine Renovierung.
Der „rechte“ Teil der vorwiegend von Dauer Campern genutzt wird könnte auch ein Waschhaus vertragen
