    Ferry to Rømø in Denmark from Sylt

    by metteks Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    To get to the nearby Danish island Rømø , you have to take the ferry. It leaves from List on the northern end of Sylt, and arrives at the town of Havneby on Rømø.
    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 Rømø is by bicycle.
    For a return ticket the fare is 4,75 euro in low season and 6,5 euro in high season. To bring a bike it is 5,75 euro and a car is 55 euro including passengers.
    On the ferry you can shop, eat in the restaurant or watch out for seals on the sand banks in the water.

    Travel by car to Sylt

    When you come from the south of Germany, Hamburg f.i. you must travel by car to Niebüll.
    There is the station for the train which goes over the Hindenburgdamm to Sylt.
    There are no raods on the damm so this is the only way to travel from Niebüll to Sylt.
    When your car is on the top of the train you have a beautiful view on the landscape
    when the train rides towards Sylt.
    After 20 minutes the train reaches the damm and on both sides there is now the wadden-
    sea. When there is low tide you see tha wadden, and by high tide the sea reaches the damm.
    Special way of travelling!
    Also seen on the TV-series: Rail Away!
    You do not have to make a reservation, because the train go many times a day, 7 days a week.

    Biking on Sylt

    by metteks Written Jun 6, 2005

    Sylt is ideal to get around on bicycle. We brought our own bikes on the ferry, but we saw places, that rented out bikes.
    We started out in List and then went to Kampen, from where we vent back to List. We wanted to go to Westerland, but thought it was to long a ride. On the way back we noticed that the bus had a box on the back, where you could put your bike. So it is possible to ride the whole island, and then take the bus back.
    On Sylt there were tourists on bikes everywhere. Some of them were obviously not used to riding bikes, so watch out for them. On the towns it seemed normal to use the footpaths for biking, which made things a little chaotic.
    There are many beautiful places in the dunes near the sea to eat a bagged lunch.
