    • Oevenum (Fering: Ööwenem, Danish: Øvenum) is a municipality on the island of Föhr, in the district of Nordfriesland, in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.

      Nieblum is located on the southern shore of Föhr, approximately halfways between the eastern and western edges of the island. Next to the village of Nieblum proper, the municipality includes the once independent hamlet of Goting which is situated just west of Nieblum. In Goting there is a cliffside of several meters height.

      Nieblum is a municipality on the island of Föhr, in the district of Nordfriesland, in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. Many of the old Frisian houses used to belong to sea captains who had made a fortune as whalers on Dutch ships. It was a hard and dangerous work which claimed a lot of lives. The tombstones in the graveyard of St. John's church (Sankt Johannis Kirche), the so-called "Frisian Cathedral", in the village testify this. The church was built in the 13th century and it is the largest of the three churches on Föhr.

      A part of the cemetery surrounding the church is "historically protected" and remains untouched. The modern part of the cemetery is maintained under the general German cemetery rules: Please note that the graves in Germany are not perpetual. After a certain period of repose (20-30 years) the graves are being leveled and re-used. There is no toxic embalming being done in Germany, so the coffin and the corpse have decomposed naturally. If the family of the deceased decides to purchase another period the duration can be extended by another 30 years. War Graves are considered memorials and are kept up by the owner of the cemetery. Those are kept forever
