| 4 min read

Cuxhaven is not by any means Germany’s most famous town, nor its biggest tourist destination. Chances are, if you’re not from Germany, you may not have even heard of it. However, it’s a town on Germany’s North Sea coast with a beach and lots of opportunity for sea fishing. Areas such as Duhnen and Sahlenburg are attractive tourist spots which bring in visitors from around Germany and from beyond. If you’re looking for a quiet break with fresh sea air and a tourist-friendly atmosphere, Cuxhaven is perfect for you.

Cuxhaven itself has a population of around 52,000 people, making it smaller and quieter than the average city, but just large enough to be able to support a thriving tourist industry. In short, if you’re looking for a quiet break in a quiet, quintessentially European coastal town with charming accommodation, then Cuxhaven is hard to beat. Here are the best hotels and vacation rentals in the area!

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status. recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on January 31, 2024.

2. Hotel Deichvoigt: simplicity and quality (from USD 72)

The Deichvoigt doesn’t make any particularly bold claims about what it can offer; it’s a quite basic hotel by some standards. It just so happens that everything it does, it does so excellently. Food here is simple but first-rate, and the rooms are not hugely high-tech but are spacious and comfortable. All of this comes for a price that is well below what you’ll pay in most hotels, and places you close to Ahoi Erlebnisbad - where you can partake of relaxing wellness treatments.

3. Hotel Stadt Cuxhaven: classic seaside relaxation (from USD 113)

The Hotel Stadt is located in the Lotsenviertel area of Cuxhaven, where the ferry terminal is to be found. That’s an excellent position to be in if you want to take a few day trips by sea while here, and the option of a jaunt to Helgoland from here is one reason to pick this hotel. Another is the relaxed, family atmosphere you’ll find while staying here: the hotel is family-run, and it shows in the attention the guests are shown.

4. A two-room seaside apartment (from USD 73)

An apartment directly overlooking the beach - like this one - is just the perfect place to stay in on a seaside holiday. Restaurants and shops are within short walking distance, and from May until September the owner also throws in a traditional roofed wicker beach chair so you can sit out on the sands and take in the view while being protected from the stiffer sea breezes.

5. A 3-star apartment in a rural area (from USD 95)

This converted farmhouse is split into four apartments ideal for small families. Guests tend to very much enjoy the seamless mixing of modernity in the appliances and furniture with the genuine rustic feel that has been retained during the renovations. A spacious garden is fun for the kids who will also find, on a rainy day, that there are books and board games available indoors. All in all, these apartments are a great place to base yourself for some peace and fresh air.

All of the appliances you could be on the lookout for are here, and there is so much space outside in the garden that you’ll find yourself completely at ease the moment you book in. And that price is not a typo - three bedrooms for the cost of a cheap hotel room; what a bargain.

7. Hotel Muschelgrund: beachfront paradise (from USD 93)

A family-run hotel just a minute’s walk from the beach, the Muschelgrund is one of Cuxhaven’s real gems. The rooms are excellent and modern, and the hotel offers a spa area including a Finnish-style sauna.

9. A one-room apartment with sea view

This fourth-floor apartment is not only excellently-priced, it’s beautifully located, offering a view out over the sea.

With room for three visitors and full amenities including TV, this is a great place to base yourself in Cuxhaven.

Welcoming, wonderful Cuxhaven: accommodations of all sorts, for all pockets!

With such a diversity of types of accommodations, Cuxhaven does have something to offer every traveller. Its North Sea coast location can make it feel not unlike a Scandinavian holiday, and the cosy practicality of the accommodations does little to change that way of thinking. However, you’re certainly in Germany - a delightful, untapped part of it, but Germany nonetheless.
