Main beach & promenade of Westerland
The run begins with the ascent of the "ladder to heaven". From here you have a wonderful view of the city as well as the beautiful beach on the west side and large parts of the island. In good visibility you can see the neighbouring islands Föhr and Amrum. Information boards are located on the platform (a few steps up to the left).
Now walk down towards the beach and turn right `to the north. The route runs along the beach to the café "Strandhaus" (red sign on the stairs). Here half of the distance is reached. Now turn around and walk from the café "Seenot" on the promenade back to the "Himmelsleiter". After the ascent, enjoy the view once more and walk down to the hotel.
