Rotes Kliff, Kampen

4.9
#2 of 12 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.

  • Should man have seen on Sylt! The colors quite different than the normal dunes! Especially from the sea!

  • Here, the atmosphere is truly unique, especially when the wild North Sea once again shows who's the boss in the ring. Otherwise, the walk worthwhile. Always neatly wrap up, the wind is always there and cool.
