There is parking nearby. It's a bit of a hike up the stairs but you are rewarded by a beautiful panoramic view. A lovely lighthouse is off in the distance. Be sure to walk down the back to an overlook to the beach.

This place offers great view over the island and to the sea. Here you see the quintessence of Sylt: sands and sea from one side and calm landscapes with dunes and cliffs from another. If you have time only for one sight - this must...More
