The island of Sylt.

Sylt coast line

Some time back, I went on a lovely weekend trip to the northern most tip of Germany and it was quite an experience. Sylt is a part of the Schleswig-Holstein district of Germany and its sandy beaches are simply amazing. I took the train from Hamburg and the ride was spectacular. It felt like I am riding over the North sea.

The beach near Sylt town center

Sylt is an offshore island and is accessible from the main land by air and rail. Being a coastal town there are many fish n chips outlets in the city center and everything they make is simply mouth watering.

Sylt town center. Quaint and beautiful.

Wind swept statues.

It was day really well spent on the shores of the north sea and I long to go back again, but this time in summer. I heard the beaches are nude!! 🙂

      1. Once only. My best friend is from Hamburg and we would usually just explore the shorelines of the North Sea. 🙂
