The dream island of Sylt

Dear readers,

Today I would like to tell you about a true jewel in the North Sea - the enchanting island of Sylt. With its unique charm, breathtaking landscapes and unmistakable atmosphere, Sylt attracts visitors from all over the world year after year.

The island of Sylt covers around 99 square kilometers and lies off the North Frisian coast of Schleswig-Holstein. It is often referred to as the “Queen of the North Sea” and impresses with its picturesque beauty. The Wadden Sea around the island is recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, which underlines its ecological importance. A special feature of Sylt is the interplay of low and high tide, which constantly changes the landscape and creates a unique habitat for flora and fauna. At low tide, there are vast expanses of sand that are used by countless birds as resting places. At high tide, the island is transformed into a magical water landscape.

Whether for sunbathing, long walks on the beach or water sports activities - everyone will find their own personal oasis of relaxation here.

Sylt is an island full of natural wonders. The unique combination of dune landscapes, heathlands and the Wadden Sea makes it a hotspot for nature lovers. The Wadden Sea, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is home to many bird species and offers the opportunity to go on guided mudflat walks at low tide.
