Germany’s fourth largest island at 99km², Sylt is the slowly becoming a haven for tourists due to it’s wonderful sampling of traditional Frisian-German island life and it’s famous nude beaches. Journeying via train is the only option for transport to the island which lends an air of old-fashioned romanticism to arriving. Sylt is famed for its culinary exploits and many German celebrities are known to visit to sample some German-Asian fusion dishes or the more traditional local specialities served in centuries-old inns.
Sylt has a vastly different culture from the rest of Germany due to it’s location in the Frisian Islands and as such has a unique language called Söl’ring which is a combination of Dutch, Danish and English. There are only a few hundred speakers of this traditional language left so you may have to visit soon before it disappears completely. The nude beaches of Sylt are famed in Germany for their cleanliness and pleasant atmosphere, the most famous being Buhne 16 and although the temperature may never get particularly hot you will never find a shortage of people willing to strip off on these beaches despite the incongruous nature of the setting.
