Guest book
Hallo, aus dem hohen Norden. Ich war 2011, im September dort. Das erste Mal und leider nur für 10 Tage. Ich war von der urigkeit, der Ruhe und der Abgeschiedenheit begeistert! Es ist, als ob die Zeit dort, still zu stehen scheint. Die restaurants am Abend ein echter Knaller, lecker und günstig. Die einheimischen Bewohner, alle sehr sehr nett. Ich empfehle den Partyvolk....bleibt weg. Es ist eben ein Ort der Idylle, der Ruhe und der Zeitlosigkeit, nichts da mit Partymeile! Ich komme auf jeden Fall wieder
