Itinerary at a glance
The small town of Husum is characterized by the interplay of the tides. The North Sea reaches as far as the inland port. Watch the tides very closely in the middle of the town. Stroll through the narrow streets and alleys and marvel at the picturesque, differently colored gabled houses.
The first stage of your cycle tour to Sylt takes you - always along the dyke - through North Friesland. You cycle along the North Sea Cycle Path through numerous nature reserves and bird sanctuaries. You are sure to come across numerous sheep frolicking on the dykes. To your left, you can see the Schleswig-Holstein Wadden Sea National Park with its unique Halligen islands. Treat yourself to a break on the dyke or take a detour along the boardwalk to Hamburger Hallig for a cup of coffee and enjoy the fantastic view before you reach your stage destination.
The Halligen are small marsh islands in the Wadden Sea, which are completely flooded several times a year. Thanks to the terps - artificial mounds - the islands can be inhabited all year round. You and your bike take the ferry to Hallig Hooge, the largest Hallig in the North Sea. In the storm surge cinema, you can experience a typical storm surge on a large screen. Enjoy the unique landscape before taking the ferry back to the mainland.
First you get on the train with your bikes and drive to Sylt. You arrange the day according to your wishes. For example, the Hörnum lighthouse in the south of the island is waiting for you. Sylt is also ideal for a relaxing day at the beach. In any case, try the fish roll typical for the region or a piece of frieze cake! Afterwards you go with the ferry to the Danish island Rømø.
Today you visit the southernmost and largest Danish North Sea island. The sandy beach of the popular vacation island is the longest and widest of its kind in all of Northern Europe and is also easily navigable by bike. You can reach the Danish mainland via an approximately ten kilometer long dam. Once you arrive in Tønder, you will enjoy the evening in the city, which is characterized by baroque and rococo architecture with its well-preserved patrician houses.
You leave Denmark on the North Sea coastal cycle path. In Neukirchen, just over the border, the Emil-Nolde-Museum is worth a visit. The exhibition offers insights into the life and work of one of the most important painters of Expressionism. On quiet paths you cycle relaxed through meadows and fields to Niebüll. Once there, we recommend a visit to the natural history museum.
From Dagebüll you cycle directly along the coast. Take a detour to the Hamburger Hallig (+ 8 km) on the way. The small peninsula is very easy to reach by bike. At the end of the Hallig, a restaurant invites you to stay a while and enjoy the views. In Husum, your destination for the day, the town's most famous son, Theodor Storm, is commemorated at every turn. The writer once described Husum as a gray town by the sea. Far from it, because the colorful and lively harbor town is neither gray nor monotonous.
The terrain is flat to slightly hilly.
