Westerland and Braderup

When Germans think about Sylt, they normally think first about the beach in Westerland, which is normally filled with people. But there are many faces to this interesting island. I will start with Westerland and the middle section of this island in the North Sea near Denmark, and then show you some of the other “faces” before moving on to my bike trip back home. Below, the “face” of yours truly.

P1240161 Sunset Westerland

Sunset in Westerland. I stayed here at a Kur clinic for 3 weeks to get my lungs in order, then rode my bike back home - about 700 km to the south - so this is a combination trip of vacation and cycling.


While on the island of Sylt, my wife, Angela, came to visit me for 5 days, so she will appear several times in the next few pages.

Some days are warm and others cooler.

Westerland 1

That evening, the wind became violent and pushed the waves to a new high. The next morning, the chairs had all taken a new position.

On the east side of the island, only 2 miles away, is Braderup which has it’s own character and a beach promenade that goes for 5 km.

The next day. I rode to the east end of the island, first to Keitum then on to the cliffs in Morsum.  Keitum und Morsum

P1240391 Westerland Strand

No one seems to be shy on this beach. When it is warm, both male and female pretend to be in the Garden of Eden alone.

Wind is normal here and sometimes changes the position of the beach chairs. Above was the same place the day before.
