|05/04/20||List, Sylt (Germany)||–||22:00|
|“Being on Sylt changes everything. Width as far as the eye can see. Freedom to do everything that makes you free. Thoughts, gone with the wind. The island, the sea, the horizon – Sylt is more than just a holiday island. Sylt is a feeling, an attitude to life. Whoever grabs it once, will not let go. “This is how the official tourism organization of Sylt describes the popular German holiday island.
List, high in the north of Sylt, spread maritime harbor flair against the backdrop of two lighthouses. The harbor is completely redesigned. Numerous small shops lure into the “Old Barrel”, and in the restaurants and cafes at the harbor you can watch the boats depart. Fischbrötchen vom Gosch or rather freshly caught Sylter Royal from Dittmeyer’s oysters company are available to choose from, if the hunger crop up in between.
If you are looking for more peace and quiet, the protected nature of the elbow protruding into the sea north of the village will make you forget the world on lonely beaches.
|The small North German island of Helgoland is only one square kilometer in size, and its imposing red sandstone cliffs rise high out of the sea. A winged word reads: “Green is the land, red is the Kant, white is the beach – these are the colors of Heligoland”.
The charming little island is ideal for exploring on foot. The famous cliff Lange Anna and the huge Lummenfelsen, nesting place of thousands of migratory birds, are among the most striking landmarks of Heligoland. The historic underground air raid shelters tell of bombing raids against the naval base and Helgoland Fortress during World War II and Operation Big Bang. On the tiny neighboring island of dune nature lovers and peace seekers come at their expense. Even seals and gray seals feel very well on their beaches.
