Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental in Sylt, North Frisian Islands your home away from home

Sylt is the largest and the most northerly of the North Frisian Islands which are situated in Germany’s North Sea. It is linked to the mainland by railway along the Hindenburg Causeway and has some fine sandy beaches and clean air. The island is 40 km long and shows evidence of prehistoric settlements although it was officially first mentioned in 13th century records.

The mudflats, dunes, flowering heaths and high cliffs are ideal for walkers and cyclists and are home to a wide range of flora and fauna.
