Winter auf Neuwerk


Neuwerk, Hamburg’s Island in the Elbe’s estuary, is not accessible to visitors in the winter. The ferry from Cuxhaven doesn’t operate in this time and the approximately 35 inhabitants are rarely seen on the mainland. For half a year the islanders stay amongst themselves. Like in the past, in front of the open skies the resort becomes a small and locked up world with a social network, special character and seasonal rituals. Especially in the winter Neuwerk is a small but very precise reflector of the “North German soul”
