Amber beach

There is always a guarantee for amber at our indoor beach, where the whole family, regardless of age, can join in.

Do as the amber hunters

The "professional" amber hunters do not just hunt for the golden pieces on land with a flashlight and a sharp eye. Wearing waders and equipped with special nets, they hunt out in the insidious waves of the North Sea. In our wave pool you can try fo "fish" for amber with mini nets in safe surroundings.

Can you guess the weight?

Weight is a good way to identify amber. It is an incredibly light material.

Everyone in the family can win amber in our fun guessing contests.
