Catching up with last week: T like Tönning

Blogging A – Z 

This is the last letter for the week and I am glad to have caught up with you all. I hope you are not tired having to look at yet another small place in North Germany.

This time I will take you to Tönning. Remember, with the letter ‘E’ I showed you the Eidersperrwerk, and when you go inland from there you will find Tönning, a small town with a nice harbour at the mouth of the river Eider.

These days Tönning is just another small place at the North Sea, trying to survive on tourism. It is nice to spend an afternoon at the harbour, having a coffee or a meal at one of the nice restaurants and cafés, watching people pass.

At one time Tönning had a shipyard and  was quite lively and known in the North. These days are over, but I included some pictures of signs I found on my walk through Tönning.

You will also find a picture showing you the floodgates that will close when the storms are pressing the waters inland.
