Rotes Kliff, Kampen

4.8
#4 of 15 in Outdoors in Sylt
Standing between two villages, Rotes Kliff stretches along the west part of Sylt. Historically a recognition mark for ships, these bright rust-red cliffs get their color from the oxidation of the minerals left by glaciers some 160,000 years ago. Walk the path along the top of the cliffs, or head down to the shore for a picnic. Wear sunscreen to avoid sunburn as there is no shade nearby. Rotes Kliff is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Kampen Edition.

  • You can iterate through the dunes over the cliff and has a great view of sea and beach! Depending on the weather, wrapped pretty windy - so good! ;-)

  • both the views of the cliff, if you walk along the beach as also the view from the cliff above the sea is great and always new depending on the direction and überaschend, I'm going to Sylt for many years and am still excited; "topless" is the way to run now much better developed than earlier and better through the many bars of Wenningstedt from

  • Whether in the morning, noon and night. In the Sun, wind and rain. The red cliffs on the beach of Kampen is an other sight again. And all, they are all beautiful. Do not miss.

  • 5 stars for the landscape and nature. Zero stars for the unkind fellow charging 4 € to access the beach. Asked why the charge is more than double he became mad and claimed he wouldn't know the charges of the other access points. I recommend getting access for 1.75 € at any other access point on the island (eg Westerland) and using the voucher in Kampen. You also avoid such unfriendly and decadent people.
  • Super site to the walk, walk, walk etc. A beautiful Cliff what color some has to offer. And on the wide Beach below is enough space for everyone. Also some nice shells we could find and dusting ^^ beautiful area as holiday gifts
