High Sea Island Heligoland

The fast and modern way to get to Heligoland


FRS Helgoline has connected Germany's only offshore island to the mainland since 1984. The only high-speed catamaran serving Heligoland, the "Halunder Jet", is the fastest way to reach the island. The new vessel (built 2017/18) is unique in its modern design and its state-of-the-art technology. Passengers enjoy not only a GPS controlled entertainment system which includes information about the sights along the journey but also an LED lighting show and a 3D sound system for a varied travel experience. It was built especially for travelling on the North Sea: with special attention to comfort and seaworthiness. A motion damping system reduces the ship movements to a minimum and the salons were built to provide the best possible service.

The interplay of fabrics and illumination turn the vessel in modern and fresh salons. Overhead lockers are especially designed to match the interior design. Through the large panoramic windows one has a superb view of the North Sea.

Helgoline's catamaran connects Hamburg, Wedel and Cuxhafen with the island's port every day between March / April and October. Heligoland offers visitors spectacular nature and high-quality taxfree shopping. FRS Helgoline is the market leader in Helgoline trade, carrying 186,000 passengers annually.
