Introducing The North Frisian Islands

With their grass-covered dunes, shifting sands, birds, seal colonies, lighthouses and rugged cliffs, you’d imagine Germany’s North Frisian Islands to be the domain of intrepid nature lovers. Instead, these North Sea islands are a favourite of the German elite. On glamorous Sylt in particular, you’ll find designer boutiques housed in quintessential reed-thatched cottages, gleaming luxury automobiles jamming the car parks, luxurious accommodation and some of the country’s most extravagant restaurants.

Those with less cash to splash can still enjoy the pure sea air, especially in Sylt’s remoter corners. The islands of Amrum and Föhr are more peaceful still.
