Subjects : Sylt is undoubtedly among the most beautiful islands in Germany. The wide beaches and the very extensive dunes create unique landscapes of rare beauty. At one time (up to 9,000 years ago) Sylt was part of the mainland, but due to the erosion caused by the North Sea it became an island. The force of erosion continues today to change the shape of the island. From 1927 the island is connected with the mainland by a dam crossed by a rail link with car transport. Today, Sylt is one of the most important tourist destinations in northern Germany, but since much of the islands is a natural park and the local authorities are very scrupulously guarding the building and the town planning the mass tourism has not created any damage, neither to the nature, nor To the image of the island. The only city that resembles the typical seaside resorts of the Sea is Westerland, in the middle of the island. Sylt is also known as the "Island of the Rich and famous": Many German celebrities have a home on the island. This has meant that the price of houses in certain localities also arrives at 10,000 euros per square metre. Since, in the mid-800th, Westerland has become a holiday resort, following the model of the English ones, the economy of the island has been increasingly influenced by tourism. Today, agriculture and fishing are now of little importance. But the tourism in Sylt, fortunately, has developed in a controlled way. The island is full of hiking trails and bike lanes and in protected areas it is strictly forbidden to venture out of predetermined paths. Of course, even in Sylt, large hotels have been built, but they are usually well placed in the surrounding environment. Particularly beautiful and suggestive is the north of the island the Ellenbogen a peninsula placed in the northern end of the island. This is the northernmost territory of the entire Germania.La Peninsula owes its name to the peculiar hooked form reminiscent of an elbow (in German: Ellenbogen, Ellbogen). The territory, which from the administrative point of view is part of the municipality of List, is owned by the Erbengemeinschaft Listland and is a protected area for birdlife. A stretch of the peninsula is also part of the Nationalpark. In the island there are several lighthouses I counted at least 4. I do not know about Avio fauna but to see the signs there are several species of birds for which the island is also suitable for photographic hunting.

Recommended equipment : Wide-angle SLR cameras for photos to beautiful landscapes. Zoom more or less long for details or to resume the fauna that crowds the coasts birds and seals in particular. Tripod for long exposures.

Best months : Spring and especially summer. Keep in mind that the weather is very variable, it alternates cloudiness and water showers at great moments of light. It takes a lot of patience and time. In Winter the island can cover itself with a snowy mantle that makes it fascinating and very suggestive to create great landscapes; In summer the island is full of tourists but let's forget our super crowded beaches.

How to get there : You can get there in three modi1 you reach by car the island of Romo (Denmark) connected to the mainland by a bridge and you take a ferry that in 45 minutes brings to List the northerly resort of the island of Sylt HTTPS://WWW.SYLTFERRY.COM/2 you reach by car the Locality of Niebull in the Land Schleswig-Holstein of Li Part a very characteristic train that transports the cars up on the island of Sylt in 45 minutes at the cost of about 98 euro. If you see the internet there are pictures where it seems that the train is swallowed by the waves of the sea on stormy days... impressive. Https://www.syltshuttle.de/syltshuttle-de/start3 Sylt also has a small airport that connects it to several populous cities of Germany.

Visits : The entrances on the beaches are all to payments; At the beginning there is a CB that asks you to pay or if you have the special card that gives you free admission... usually this is offered by hotels or agencies owning the holiday homes. Once you enter you can pick up their special deckchairs that shelter from the wind.

Notes : Although the island in the summer months is invaded by a very dense tourism offers however very wild spaces where you can make great walks almost in solitary and large bathrooms in the North Sea... I repeat I do not mean much of Avio fauna but on the island there They are different species of animals and especially of birds.... To me and to my family the island loved it also because we found spectacular days with big lights combined with intense and suggestive motorcycle skies. Sure is that the island is not very cheap but well worth a trip. Good vision
