near Helgoland, Schleswig-Holstein (Deutschland)
This small "rock" in the middle of North Atlantic ocean has only 1,7 km2 and a small town, which is divided in the middle by a cliff, so you can visit the "down town" and the "upper town". This long cliff provides refugee for many seabirds species, being one of the best places for birdwatching (you can easyly see many species of seaguls, gannets, puffins and, if you are lucky, black-browed albatross!).
Near Helgoland there is another island, the Düne, where you can go by 10 minutes ferry trip and see seals (Grey and Harbour seals).
