The island is an eldorado for runners, because walking on the beach is "meditation in motion". From the hotel it is only a few steps or steps to the wonderful beach - for runners the steps of the "Himmelsleiter" beach crossing mean the best warm-up training. We have no mountains, but wind that can increase the intensity of a run accordingly. Best North Sea air makes the lungs wide and the heart on "Rüm Hart klaar Kimming".
Vary the routes according to weather and wind conditions and observe the tide tables. It is best to enjoy the beach with "tail wind". Flooding means walking through deep sand on the beach. If the sand is too deep, there are usually always parallel stretches behind the dunes. At low tide the flood seam is wide, flat and firm.
Nordic Walking on Sylt
With a length of 220 km, the Nordic Walking Park on Sylt is one of the largest in Germany. From the north of the island to the southern tip and from the green east to the pulsating centre of the island, all places are connected by a path system. Instead of altitude meters, you will feel the characteristic elements of the island: The pleasant sandy subsoil, the dune landscape, through which signposted gravel paths lead. And last but not least, the island climate with its clear sea air containing minerals and the unique mixture of wind and sun.
For Running Enthusiasts
Not only the Sylt run, which has now become the season opener for many runners, regularly attracts running enthusiasts. It is especially the endless and well developed running tracks, whether through small woods, at the seafront or through breathtaking heath and dune landscapes.
