Rømø Things to Do

  • Forest trails

    There are many parking points on the island where one can take some meal, rest or also take the tour into forest. Better to have the islands' map which are provided in tourist office or camping sites, so easier to orientate there. To spend time on the island and waiting for the seal tour, I took one of the trails. I don't know if there is allowed...

  • Grey seals

    On our guided tour we were lucky to see 34 seals, two wales which were promised on the beginning were swimming somewhere else. As I wrote in previous tip the ship goes quite close to observe them clearer, you can even take binocular to see the nice faces :)The smaller ones are looking lighter as they have fluffy white skin later becoming more...

  • Excursion to see the grey seals and...

    The primary thing for me was to see the seals, watch birds and to observe who live in Nordic sea. Everyday excursions are organized from Havneby port and tickets can be bought on the ship or at the port. I don't know if timetable changes but I went there at afternoon and it took as more than one hour. If you get lucky you'll be able to see many...

  • Bird watching... Yes real Brids!

    Rømø is with its marshland a sanctuary to birds and ideal for looking at birds so remember your binoculars. We did get to see marshharriers, oystercatchers, starlings that can make this phenomenon called black sun if they are enough, we was not that lucky to see this. Skylarks and many more.

  • Sand - Sculpture contest

    Some years a contest at the beach is beeing held. Artists from many contries gather to make sculptures of sand.

  • The beach, of course

    The sky was filled with kites when I took this photo--room is in abundance on this very large beach.


Rømø Transportation

  • Ferry to Sylt from Rømø

    To get to the nearby German island Sylt (In Danish; Sild), you have to take the ferry. It leaves from Havneby on the southern end of Rømø, and arrives at the town of List on Sylt. It leaves about every 1½ hour, and the trip takes 30 minutes. It is possible to bring your car, but I think the best way to explore Sylt is by bicycle. For a return...

  • To the island by car

    The small Rømø island is located in Wadden sea on the edge of Denmark and very close to Germany. So I suggest if you are visiting North Germany maybe you can catch it. Rømø with main land is connected by dam which can be easily be crossed by car and there is no special fee to be paid. I think the driving with bicycles are also...

    By the road ...as you see it!: Self-Service

    by TheView Updated Aug 12, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One little thing I really like is that its taken for granted in Denmark that you can have a little self-service booth to sell vegetables and fruits from the side of the road ....AND IT WORKS.

    What to buy: In Rømø there was nice ecological Honey from the island.

    What to pay: What the sign says ...just leave the money in the little bowl.

    Sweet briars

    by Inguuna Written Aug 29, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As I go somewhere abroad I look what are specific things which can be found in that place. So I noticed that everywhere here are growing sweet briars. Even on the cards it was shown that specific thing is that bush with hips. I don't know what are the reason just for good looking or maybe some specific needs but you can try to eat just the hip not the seeds.

    These are everywhere

Rømø Warnings and Dangers

  • Prepare to pay more

    I never have written that something is expensive or so but Denmark shocked me a little bit. If you're coming just straight from Germany or Poland you may feel that prices here are higher than there. Or another thing - I thought that on island the prices for everything were a bit more than in other regions of Denmark. I don't say that you won't be...

  • Megalomania

    The crabs here seems to have delusions or problems with there measure. When they as they do meeting other crabs measure themselfs by seeing how fare there are between the claws to see if the other might be good for lunch. Some of the crabs think your toes look like a good little mouthful and explode in a illusion of grandeur as they try to eat you!

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

    Modern wreck hunters

    by TheView Updated Aug 5, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The beaches here are very large and you are allowed to drive your car out on the hard sand ..but stay here at the hard sand and walk the last bit. Even if there are cars with 4 wheel drive closer to the water. Some of this cars belong to local danes doing themself as moden wreck hunters and make a good little profit helping your car out of the sand when the tide is about to take your car!!!! If the Falck is not around ;-) (We didn´t have any problems)
