Visitors to the air health resort town of Niebüll might see it name written in a few ways. In German it’s Niebüll, in Frisian it’s Naibel, and in Danish it’s Nibøl. Why would you care how the name is spelled in Danish?
This just means that if you’re in Denmark, there’s no reason for you not to hop the ferry (or car, bus, train, etc) and come on over. If you’re already in Germany, just take the railway right into town from Hamburg. Seems simple enough, right? It is.
Whatever your mode of transportation to come to Niebüll, you’ll enjoy its three museums. One is the Outdoor Frisian Museum, with exhibits on the Frisian way of life. The other is the Natural History Museum (called Naturkunde-Museum on plates); and lastly is the Richard-Haizmann-Museum of Modern Art.
Who is Richard Haizmann, you ask? Mister Haizmann was a German painter & sculptor who died here in 1963. His works hang not only in the museum bearing his name, but also in the Alte Rathaus (with other modern day artist’s works); and in the Fine Arts Museum in Hamburg.
Afterwards, why not cycle around the North Sea? You never know, you might be inspired to paint something that might one day hang in the Old Town Hall. ;-) Maybe this is how Mr. Haizmann was inspired, too.
If you don’t think with that side of your brain, how about a guided day tour along the Stollberg Mountain Route or the Stollberg Horse Tour? There are also guided natural history tours, urban tours, and guided bicycle tours. Or, just take a leisurely boat ride around.
Oh, I know that’s awesome to do here in Niebüll! Besides just walking through the forest marshlands, nature reserves, or bird watching in the bird sanctuary — why not go mudflat hiking!
I would recommend taking a guide with you, since you have to know the tide schedule of when to go walking out in the mudflats of the North Sea when it rolls out. It’s so easy, anyone of any age can do it — all you have to do is walk!
It seems to be much simpler than trying to figure out which is the right way to spell Niebüll. I mean Naibel. Sorry, I mean Nibøl. Whatever! ;-)
