Region & Activities


The Gulfhof Klein Schulenburgerpolder is located between Norden / Norddeich, Marienhafe and Greetsiel on the northern edge of the Krummhörn.
Krummhörn is what the area north of Emden along the North Sea is called. In Low-German this name means “bend corner”, describing the shape of the coast in the area. In the very old settlements many old buildings have been preserved. Historic churches with numerous, well-preserved organs can be found. The organ in Rysum dates back to 1457 and is one of the oldest in the world. Krummhörn is ideal for exploring by bike, one example would be the 8 kilometre tour from Klein Schulenburgerpolder to Greetsiel. The landscape of the Krummhörn is dominated by agriculture with numerous drainage flumes (referred to as “Tief” in Ostfriesland), which offer various opportunities for boat trips.
