In the house you will find the island book which contains all important telephone numbers from the coast guard to the hospital etc.     

You don’t need to. The boat transfer is already included in your reservation.  

Please inform yourself on the website of the [German] Foreign Office, or ask your family doctor about possible vaccinations.

There are two first aid kits as well as some plasters on the island.   

In addition to some bird species and insects it may well be that a moose or a bear is swimming in the sea.
