"Nature on the island of Sylt"
Fine sandy beaches in the west, a wide expanse of tidal mudflats to the east. Idyllic countryside between dunes and dykes. Lush green meadows, flowering heathland, and imposing cliffs. Sylt’s scenery is as varied as it is charming, a true paradise for hikers as well as for numerous species of animals and plants. To preserve its unique landscapes, nearly half of the island has been classified a conservation area or nature reserve.
The Wadden Sea lining Sylt’s east coast is one of the island’s most fascinating landscapes. Obeying the rhythm of the tides, the living conditions of the plants and animals inhabiting this zone change every few hours.
In List there is a Natur Erlebniscentrum.
