Lighthouse
Climb the 102 steps to the top of Leuchtturm and enjoy the spectacular view of the area. The lighthouse, built in 1888, overlooks the Baltic Sea coast, and rises 28 m (92 ft). Take a stroll on the small beach, where flocks of seagulls fly overhead. For safety reasons, only 15 people at a time can enter the lighthouse, so make sure to book a tour in advance to ensure access.

  • Worth a visit in any case. The tour lasts one hour. Interesting info. The tower was also previously a dwarf school home and can also still used today for marriage (Registrar's Office).

  • The lighthouse of Hörnum...... is released for the tour. Moreover future marriages in airy heights will be possible. Visitors have the opportunity to climb the spiral staircase of about 33 meter high tower which in turn sits on a 17 m high dune. On about 5o metres above sea level is a fantastic view over the whole island of Sylt to over to the neighbouring islands of Amrum and Föhr. The tours take place every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at 9:00, 10:00, 11:00 and 12:00. The visitors group includes up to 10 people. The "Tower-ticket" is available exclusively at the tourism service Hörnum on presentation of the Sylt Island Spa card and costs z. ZT. for adults €5.00, children (minimum age: 8 years) €2.50. As a souvenir each participant a "visitors"certificate for 1, 00 € purchase. An accomplished leader knows how to report some exciting and hilarious episode to the "Summit"strikers from the story of the 1907 built Tower - about from the time when the lighthouse of in Germany hosted the smallest school.
