Art & culture

Sylt is a centre of art and culture – a home for artists and a veritable mecca for art lovers. An extremely varied range of art is on show here, and it can be admired in countless galleries, craft workshops, as well as in Sylt Quelle's art gallery, Germany's northernmost cultural centre.
Sylt Quelle art gallery
Rantum lies to the south of the island. Somewhat concealed amid unspoilt nature an arts centre made from glass emerges. This cutting-edge architecture is a just taster for what's behind the glass. Contemporary art and culture in the spheres of literature, visual and performing arts are showcased in the light-flooded atrium of the Sylt Quelle arts centre.
Sylt is motivation enough to continue providing inspiration to countless artists, with its picturesque backdrop of coastal mudflats, idyllic cliffs, sand dunes and the rising and falling of the tides. Art exhibited in the galleries on Sylt include works by renowned artists from the fields of abstract expressionism and cubism, from the Brücke and Blue Rider schools, as well as works by other significant artists.
Craft workshops
Bring home the perfect souvenir of your island holiday from one of Sylt's many craft workshops. Glass blowing, gold and silver smithing, ceramics and pottery or making leather goods – you are only limited by your imagination. Watching these artisans at work is also a pleasure for both you and them.
