Cuxhaven is a North Sea port town in Germany, home to an important fisherman's wharf, and one of the largest sea side resorts in Germany. Cuxhaven is a quiet place, so don’t expect too much action. But its beaches, the small castle Ritzebüttel, and the ship wreck museum are well worth your time. Take a walk over the promenade and gaze at the passing ships, go for a nice dinner in one of the many restaurants, or dig up your swimming trunks and spend a nice afternoon at the beach.

Dover is a port town in south east England, famous for its White Cliffs. Historically it was a very important port due to the proximity to France. Visit the majestic Dover Castle or relax on St. Margaret's Bay Beach. Don't miss the Dover Museum – it's free and full of exciting stories!
