The island’s heart beats right at its centre. With charm and laughter, the island’s capital unites urbane elegance with maritime buoyancy. Westerland is outright pure zest for life.
Pamper your taste buds with culinary diversity: matjes herring, oysters, award-winning cuisine and beach-side bistros – there’s something here for all tastes. Enjoy the thrilling spectacle of the Windsurfing World Cup, take your team to victory at beach volleyball or enjoy exciting family adventures, like beach expeditions, pulling faces at the sharks from behind the safety of the aquarium glass or tossing yourself into the waves of the Sylter Welle indoor swimming pool with its spectacular views across the North Sea.
Enjoy the same view as you are pampered with Ayurvedic oil massages or attend Qi Gong classes. A glass front turns the studio on the roof of the Syltness-Center into a panorama lounge. The adjoining sauna complex set amid the dunes is too beautiful for only a brief visit. Once you’ve recharged your batteries, you can explore the island in all its diversity: whether by car or bus, by bike or on foot with your “Nordic Walking” sticks – Westerland’s central location makes it the ideal starting point for excursions. Listen to concerts performed against the magnificent backdrop of the North Sea, lose track of time while shopping, conquer the surf on your surfboard and unwind in your Strandkorb: Westerland is the perfect place for all this and more.
