With fine sandy beaches to the west, and the tidal flats of the Wadden Sea to the east, in its picturesque setting between the sand dunes and the Odde, Hörnum beguiles visitors with the extraordinary appeal of its scenery. Nature here needs special protection, as the demand for property and building plots on Sylt is high.
From as early as 1923, areas of the island were placed under conservation orders. Today on Sylt every seventh square metre of land is protected landscape, and every fourth square metre is nature reserve. The sum of these protected areas makes up around 40 percent of the whole island – an exceptionally high percentage compared with the rest of the country.
Über 200 Kunstwerke von 40 zeitge-nössischen Künstlern sind am 26. April zu bestaunen.
Mit dem Bau des Sanitärgebäudes wird im September begonnen.
In Hörnum werden ab Mitte April rund 823.000 m³ Sand aufgespült.
