Vacation rentals on Sylt

A holiday apartment in the centre of the island

Sylt offers more than just champagne and caviar and is therefore one of the most popular destinations for Germans, who prefer to stay in an apartment or apartment in the main town of Westerland. Most of the modern holiday apartments are located in newly renovated or lovingly maintained detached houses, from where you can reach the cosy cafés, restaurants and the beach within a few minutes on foot. In addition, you benefit from the direct connection to the airport, which is only a few hundred metres away from your holiday home, and the train station, which makes your journey particularly comfortable.

A vacation rental in the countryside

The Kampen area to the north is much quieter than the lively Westerland, Tinnum and Keitum areas, where you can relax in an idyllic thatched frieze house with its characteristic red brick walls close to the golf club, directly behind the protected dune landscape on the Red Cliff. If, on the other hand, you want to cut yourself off from civilization altogether, for example to seek strength and inspiration for your work, a vacation rental in List on the northern tip of the island or in Hörnum in the very south is just the thing for you.

Travelers and Activities

Sylt with dog

Similar to Usedom and Rügen, Sylt is also a dog island. This is primarily due to the wide dunes and endless beaches of the island, which you can use for extensive walks with your quadrupeds. At 16 designated dog beaches along the Sylt west coast you have the opportunity to romp to your heart's content with your dog in the surf or to give him the possibility to get to know other four-legged friends. Many restaurants on the island have also prepared themselves for a clientele of four paws and are therefore happy to provide refreshments or have their own exercise area where your companion can move freely while you eat.

Sylt for nature lovers

The North Sea coast of Sylt is a paradise for nature lovers, as nature reserves such as the Rantumer dunes, the Red Cliff and the north of Sylt are home to many seabirds and offer relaxation in wild nature. Special highlights include the Braderup Heath, which is also a nature reserve, the Rantum Basin with its 30 species of water birds and the shifting dunes at List, which move up to seven metres per year. A hike in the UNESCO World Heritage Wadden Sea is also part of a visit to Sylt. During a guided tour you will walk on the seabed and not only learn interesting facts about the tidal flat inhabitants and the mechanisms of ebb and flow, but also care for your skin at the same time with the mineral-rich silt.

Things to know

Best travel time

The location off the coast provides Sylt with a year-round dominant westerly wind, which drives almost all clouds towards the mainland and thus ensures a year-round high sunshine duration of on average up to nine hours a day. As Sylt is one of the sunniest regions in Germany, the island already enjoys great popularity among Whitsun holidaymakers in May. Air temperatures of up to 20 degrees Celsius on average and water temperatures of up to 18 degrees Celsius make Sylt an ideal destination for a beach holiday in July and August. Dog owners can also book their apartment from November to March, because then the leash obligation does not apply on many beaches.

Regular events

The island's programme of events begins on 21 February with the Biikebrennen, the national festival of the Frisians, during which the winter is expelled and traditional seafaring on the North Sea is opened. The German Polo Masters in August and the Surf World Cup off the coast of Westerland on the last weekend of September are both sporting events where you can admire the world's surfing elite from the beach promenade. Sylt is also known for its rich theatre and cabaret programme such as the "Meerkabarett im Zirkuszelt" near the island airport. The Christmas markets in Kampen and Achsum, as well as the New Year's Eve fireworks display with the traditional masked run, will mark the end of the year.

The song "Westerland" by the rock band "Die Ärzte" sings about the beauty of the island Sylt.

Sylt Aquarium

The Sylt Aquarium in Westerland is an ideal excursion destination for young and old. In 25 pools filled with sea water on more than 2,000 square meters you will discover both the domestic and the tropical underwater world. Highlights include the coral world with exotic fish and colourful corals as well as the Helgoland Basin, which shows the typical underwater world in front of Germany's only deep-sea island. For young and old visitors the aquarium opens its gates daily from 10-18 o'clock.

The megalithic grave Denghoog

The Thinghügel in Wenningstedt proves that Sylt was already inhabited over 5,000 years ago. You will get particularly close to the Bronze Age inhabitants by visiting the megalithic tomb, also known as the Denghoog, which served as a court mound in the third millennium BC and is also the largest complex of its kind in north-western Europe. You can even visit the burial chamber, which consists of 18-ton boulders from the Ice Age.

Experience the forces of nature

In the immediate vicinity of your apartment in List you will find the experience centre "Naturgewalten", which allows you to experience up close how the forces of nature have shaped the island and island life. Expert guides also know how to explain the complex interrelationships of the North Sea, weather and climate research to even the smallest ones without neglecting details.

Finest Single Malt Whisky

The single malt whisky Sylter Tide is as rough as the sea off Sylt, and its name is not without reason. The fine drop is stored in European oak barrels in salt water off the coast and matures under the influence of ebb and flow until it emerges from the tides after six months and is bottled as a regional speciality. For whisky lovers, the Sylt Tide with its fruity-salty note is a real revelation.

Frisian life in its purest form

You will experience Frisian life not only in an apartment on Sylt, but also in the so-called "Old Frisian House" in Keitum. There you get an insight into the life of the islanders in the 18th century and get to know the traditional island handicraft in the museum weaving mill, where you can even do handicrafts yourself.
