After lunch we jumped on our bikes and set off on a ride along the various cycle tracks.....as I'd forgotten our map we had nowhere specific in mind, but we managed a circuit of 23.2 km according to the app on my phone (yesterday was 32.7km).
At one point we reached a river, and the only way to cross it was via a "ferry" (ie, a man (and a dog!) in a rowing boat). 1 Euro per person, plus an extra Euro for ...

For 4 Euros you were allowed to climb first 266 stone steps, then around 100 more steps up wooden staircases inside the bell tower, and then finally 50 or so more steps up wooden ladders to reach the viewing platform.

Unfortunately, while the Germans seem to have good taste in many areas, their idea of a seaside resort is NOT in that category. The main street leading to the beach, and several other streets in the town, were full of mock 19th century mansions, or, perhaps worse, blocks ...
