Helgoland, Vogelschau

Title:
Helgoland, Vogelschau
Description:
Heligoland is a small island off the northwest coast of Germany. It has been inhabited since prehistoric times and with a current population of about 1,000 people. This view was created in 1890, the year that the British gave up the islands to Germany in the Heligoland-Zanzibar Treaty. The red sedimentary rock cliffs are unusual for this area. No other such formation exist along the continental coast of the North Sea.
