  • This simple Church is one my ' favorite '. She is not pretentious, but is an ambience of calm and invites you to do. A place to recover from the turmoil of everyday life. Recommended are the organ concerts and other musical events.

  • Saint-Séverin is Church Keitum Keitumer Church to see, because it was built on the company point of Sylt Trudy Kernes of width. The Church has been mentioned since 1240. In the summer, organ concerts by candlelight held in the navigators Church. Is worth a visit: the baptismal font, carved altar, the pulpit, the chandeliers, paintings and sculptures, the Müller Chair, long story short... the entire interior and the exterior. The old gis'-Bell carries the inscription: "I lament dead, living urge I, God, the Lord, I praise". The fis'-Bell carries the inscription: "God, the Mr is Sun and shield" and two intricate rings, to the names of the bride and groom to the wedding, the Bell was donated.

  • Very beautiful church in the "middle" of Sylt. There's a famous organ, where regular concerts are played here. One of the lesser-known sights of Sylt.
