Suggested excursions

Westerland on Sylt is home to one of the most spectacular attractions on the island – the Sylt Aquarium. The mysterious underwater world of the North Sea is revealed through a series of tunnels, with shoals of fish actually swimming above visitors' heads. The island of Heligoland can be reached by boat and is a fascinating destination for a day out with an abundance of natural treasures to discover.
Sylt Aquarium
The Sylt Aquarium offers visitors a fascinating insight into underwater worlds of the topics and the island itself. In the Heligoland and Korallenwelt water zones you can walk through ten metre long glass tunnels, where a total of over 2,000 of our aquatic friends await your visit. Information terminals and edutainment films round off a great day out.
Island of Föhr
In the heart of the Wattenmeer National Park, situated in the North Sea, but enjoying a mild climate created by the Gulf Stream, lies the second-largest German North Sea island, Föhr (82 km²). On Föhr you'll find a charming blend of Frisian hospitality, cosmopolitan attitude, tradition and modern conveniences. More than half of the island is marshland. The rest is mainly agricultural, with plenty of cows, horses and sheep. This is a mecca for cyclists and birdwatchers.
Germany's most distant North Sea island, Heligoland, has some breathtakingly beautiful scenery: the Dune with its lovely sandy beaches, "long Anna“, the red sandstone cliffs just off the coast and Lummenfelsen (guillemot cliffs), a breeding paradise for sea birds. During the high season white tourist boats set off from 17 different coastal locations, offering fascinating cruises on the high seas.
