Helgoland in Germany is a small German island in the North Sea with around 1400 inhabitants who live on tourism. Helgoland consists of two islands which are located 46 kilometres off the German coastline.
The main island is divided into the Unterland (Lower Land) located at sea level and the Oberland (Upper Land).
You will find small beaches in the north and the south of the mainland.
In 1947, the British detonated 6,700 tonnes of explosives on Helgoland to destroy german military equipment. This was the biggest non-nuclear detonation in history.
Helgoland does not pay tax to the European Union and Germany. This means that you can buy tax-free cigarettes and other things on the island.
