Two seas lap around the broad sandy beach and collide on the southernmost tip of the island, while the lighthouse guides walkers and excursion ships along the right paths: Hörnum is Sylt’s sunny south.
Surrounded by gorgeous beaches and fragrant rose bushes. Watched over by the red and white lighthouse – which is worth climbing up, to immerse yourself in Sylt’s history or even tie the knot amongst a small circle of friends. Love with wonderful prospects, including views across to the neighbouring islands, the shimmering Wattenmeer, the North Sea waves and the endless horizon. There are so many things to do here.
Set off on a boat trip: excursion boats leave several times a day for the seal banks and neighbouring islands. If you want to control the rudder yourself, head off to the Sylt Catamaran Club or the Sylt Yacht Club. The new golf course, located at the foot of the dunes, is perfect for practicing your stroke, or simply enjoy a relaxing walk around the Odde. If you’re travelling with children, the wide eastern beach with its shallow shore is a true paradise. And if you want to know what exactly it is you have discovered in the sand or mud, the mud flats preservation centre Schutzstation Wattenmeer will provide the answers. No matter which direction you’ve come from, the outlook in Sylt’s south is always sunny.
