In November 2015, our Tourist Information Office was the first in North Germany to be awarded the Seal of Quality for generation-friendly Shopping by Handelsverband Nord (HV Nord). Retail establishments that respond to the needs of customers of all ages with greater or lesser disability, are awarded this seal of quality.
