Access from the mainland
Via Airplane:Heligoland is worth a special journey. The island of Heligoland can be reached by various forms of transport. Specially for the Economic Forum, the airline “Air Hamburg”, in cooperation with Ostfriesischer–flight service, will offer separate services from Hamburg Airport (GAT). From Cuxhaven and Büsum, the Ostfriesischer–flight service will also offer flights (flight times depending on point of departure: 25-50 minutes). Alternatively, the fast ferry HalunderJet can take you from Hamburg to Heligoland via Cuxhaven.
During the flight to Hamburg-Heligoland you can see the power plants at Brunsbüttel and Brokdorf. In addition, you fly along the Elbe over Brunsbüttel, where several 5MW turbines (belonging to Siemens and Enercon) stand. If you come via Bremen or Bremerhaven, you can admire the foundations of Bard’s offshore construction Tripile, near Cuxhaven.
