Sturm78,

The landscape with the dunes does not match the landscape of MKB Hamburg near Cherbourg.

I could not find any image of MKB Hamburg in Norderney either. However, the dune landscape on the picture looks similar to the landscape around MKB Skagerrak on Sylt island. Here is a picture first posted on page 11 (July 28, 2012) of this same thread:
