Geography

Birdseye view, Heligoland, Germany

Heligoland is located 70 km (44 miles) from the German coast line and actually consists of two islands: the populated triangular-shaped 1 km² (0.4 sq mi) main island (Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter has terminated with signal "24".) to the west and the island of Düne (Heligolandic: de Halem) in the east.

Düne is the smaller of the two islands(0.7 km²). It is also lower, surrounded by sand beaches and no-one lives on the island throughout the year.

Often when people talk about "Heligoland" they only mean Hauptinsel.
