Day 1 – Sylt, Germany
Start by car a full day guided visit of the island of Sylt.
Sylt is more than an island. For many regular visitors to the island, it’s a philosophy. But what makes this small North Sea island so special?
The answers are as diverse as they are abundant: What makes Sylt so unique is the interplay of contrasts, which come together to create precisely what the island stands for: Sea. Passion. Life. Sylt is an exciting yet calm mixture of laissez-faire and savoir-vivre. The joie de vivre of a metropolis surrounded by unspoilt nature andpeaceful sanctuaries. All places are holding an individual natural charm.
Guided walk through the dunes, at the beach and through Kampen Nature reveals itself here in all its beauty. Right in the middle: The Uwe dune, at 52 meters the highest elevation on the island. A modern health resort, the legendary “Whisky Street” with its fascinating clubs and the attractive golf course – these are just some of the many facets of this impressive village. From vibrant Westerland the visit will lead you to List with its small harbour in the South. After a short guided visit the tour continues to stylish Kampen.
Day 2 – Amrum, Germany
Head off for a bike-tour along the world natural heritage Wadden Sea, which in June 2009 was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list. There is plenty to discover during the trip to Amrum: Visit the lighthouse and enjoy the bird’s eye view from its top. Marvel at a fully intact wind-mill.
The guided visit of the Carl Zeiss Naturzentrum includes also a walk through the dunes and the beach where you will get to know all about the Wadden Sea. The “Öömrang Hüs” takes you right back to the time when Amrum was still full of sailors and read about their lives on the ornate tombstones on the islands church´s graveyard. Visit one of the natural history centers, the “Maritur”, or the bird caretaker at the northern tip of the island.
Day 3 – Hamburg
Highlights of Hamburg when talking about their home town, the normally reserved people of Hamburg are not reticent about blowing their own trumpet. You see, most of them take it for granted that it’s the most beautiful city in Germany. And even if residents of other cities should dare to voice their protest, Hamburg really does have a lot to offer: Jungfernstieg with its upmarket shops, the downtown lakes (the Binnenalster and Aussenalster), the Reeperbahn (Hamburg’s entertainmentdistrict), the largest harbour in Germany, the old Speicherstadt and the new HafenCity an das latest addition the impressive Elbphilharmonie.
