Emden and Leer ( last part of our trip in Ostfriesland )

this is the bell tower (church) of Suurhusen

Emden - not far away from Greetsiel has about 51,000 population and is the economy and culture center of the region. The high light of our trip there was the church tower of Suurhusen just around Emden, it breaks the record of the Pisa tower ( see picture of the certificate from Guiness)

Leer - from 850 was known "LARE" with about 33,000 population is a beautiful city with fascinating houses from 17th to 18th century. Except for the last two photos from Suurhusen, all the pictures are taken in Leer.

Our trip to Ostfriesland was, i can say unique! :) " Danke schön Ostfriesland für die wunderschöne Reise! " :)

please visit for our Greetsiel trip, thank you.
