With just under 50,000 inhabitants, Emden is located in the heart of East Frisia, in an ecologically attractive region with a good infrastructure. In Emden, life is enjoyed with serenity and joy. Many maritime events such as the Maimarkt, the Matjestage or the Emder Hafenmeile characterize city life.
Sports and culture
Friends of culture get their money's worth in the Kunsthalle from STERN founder Henri Nannen, the Ostfriesisches Landesmuseum and the Johannes a Lasco library. On the numerous canals of the city, the city can be explored by canoe or pedal boat from the water. And all jokers should not miss "Dat Otto Huus" - the humorous epicenter of the eponymous comedian.
As the westernmost port city of Germany, Emden has excellent transport links through the A31 motorway, as well as train station, airfield and countless waterways. Thus, for example, the East Frisian Islands, the Ruhr and the Netherlands can be reached quickly.
From the East Frisian Islands in the North Sea to the inland, there is a landscape that could not be more varied. The tradition around the tea, the Low German language, the East Frisian humor and the special people stroke make Ostfriesland unique.
