Nature & greenery

As a North Frisian island, Sylt has everything that a nature lover could desire – long walks on endless beaches, extraordinary sand dunes, cycle paths, mud flats and of course the sea. The Sylt cliffs are particularly fascinating. Formed by ice-age glaciers they are reminders of a long-forgotten age.
Ellenbogen peninsula / List
To the west you'll see a fine sandy beach and the endless North Sea; to the east the tranquil Wattenmeer mud flats and in between lie the unspoilt sand dunes. Make your way through the dunes to stand on the tip of the island on the Ellenbogen peninsula, and you can enjoy the privilege of calling yourself the northernmost person in Germany. The oldest dunes are up to 8,000 years old and the highest is up to 35m high. Two majestic lighthouses complete this picture-book scene.
Morsum Cliff
Morsum Cliff, in the east of the island, is a natural monument of spectacular beauty. In the deep red haze of sunset it is the perfect place for daydreaming, photography or just taking a stroll. Morsum Cliff's uniqueness lies in the fact that its open rock strata reveal the history of our planet.
Kampen Cliff
The North Sea is rough and wild and the storms and waves relentlessly eat away at the west coast of Sylt. A walk along Kampen's beach gives visitors a chance to see nature at work. Although in the dramatic hues of the evening sky, the red cliff stands defiant against the crashing waves, each year a little more is lost to the sea.
