Sylt fans love the island for their harsh climate, the strong wind and the often impressive strong surf, the sea air and the gentle dunes

For many years my family and I went to Sylt in the summer holidays, the most northerly German island in the North Sea. A ritual, that was never doubted. Until we, again, spent three weeks in continuous rain and the entertainment program for our then small children started decreasing rapidly. In summer you might buy a cute bikini or Sun Spray SPF 50. But no Cashmere-hats. So in the Family Council Ibiza was decided to be the next destination. Also an island, but with 95 percent sun guarantee. As recently the invitation to a Hippie Party in Sylt lay in the postbox, I was very excited for the island and a reunion. A great party overlooking the beach of Kampen really is a highlight in the party season. And the motto Hippie is absolutely my thing. The weather forecast was indeed moderate, so I squeezed my lambskin vest in the luggage, a cool thing, which has proven itself on some Sylt Parties.

Me in my hippie party outfit. Would the hairstyle be a serious alternative?

But things turned out differently, at least weather. Bright sunshine waiting for me and the other guests. And that almost all weekend, which was marred only by a few clouds from which it dribbled a few times. But because I always have a well-stocked assortment of jackets when I go to Sylt, I was prepared for wind and rain. How starts a perfect day in Sylt? After a party night of dancing, with a late breakfast, which in my hotel, the Arosa Resort und Spa is possible until 12pm. By the way, a super rich breakfast with scrambled eggs in all variations, fruit salads and fresh waffles. The spacious spa (there is a pool overlooking the sea) is a recommendation to external guests when in the mood for a good massage or a sauna session.

Many Sylt guests are regulars who come regularly across generations to the island. The dune landscape has something magical, especially in the evening in the light of the setting sun. Now in summer the heather is flowering and a purple-colored veil lies over the hills. And though the sea nagging on the coasts makes the island shrink every year, the long beaches with fine powder sand are particularly impressive. There has been written much about the island. So we know that in Sylt there is one of the most beautiful villages of Germany – Keitum, that Kampen has the highest density of millionaires, jewelers and luxury cars and the Nobel beach bar Sansibar remains one of the most popular restaurants of the Society in the south of the island.

Sylt serves not only clichés and superlatives. Even if the Elbow Beach at the northernmost island corner with four and a half kilometers is the longest and loneliest sandy beach of Sylt. It is wonderful to explore the route from List by bicycle. 18 km (round trip) that pay off! In good weather you can see the Danish coast and with some luck whales and seals from here. Alternatively, and especially with strong wind I prefer a walk on the quieter watt-side. I love the walk from Braderup to Kampen, which is very popular with runners and riders.

For lunch I decided for the restaurant Sturmhaube in Kampen, where Maitre Jörn Steffen recommends us the turbot. Previously a lot of Sylt oysters and a wonderful Rosé “Gris Blanc” by Bertrand – tastes like holidays. Uncomplicated it is at the beach Bistro on Buhne 16 when the delicious hamburger with truffled parmesan fries is in front of you and you have your feet in the sand. Who is more into cake, is still happy in the Kupferkanne. With the view of the mudflap-side of the island, here the mega-delicious fruit cake is served from metal-sheets.

The secret treasure is hidden in the basement of Sansibar

I spent my evenings in Sylt in the restaurant Sansibar countless times. The food is still good. This is due to gastronomy legend Herbert Seckler, his team and high professionalism. The secret treasure is hidden in the basement of Sansibar, which can be used for small celebrations. Here they store 30,000 bottles, including some rarities, worth three million euros. The lucky ones experience the red sun as it sinks into the sea – and listens to the 40s hit by Capri-Fischer. Almost too good to be true. BvH

Prices around four million euros for houses in Kampen are not uncommon

Originally the few parking spaces on the whiskey mile (alias Strönwai) in Kampen were reserved for private luxury vehicles: Bentleys, Maseratis, Ferraris competed here for the attention of saunter vacationers. Today Kampen’s legendary mile has outclassed the rather pushy sales and PR area for car brands such as Jaguar, Volvo, Mercedes or Range Rover

Info Sylt:

Sylt is the largest North Frisian island with a length of 38 kilometers and the northernmost point of Germany. At its narrowest point, the North Sea island measures only 320 meters in width. But Sylt offers many superlatives, i.e. the 40-kilometer long western beach. Due to storm surges there is continuous loss of land.
