Destination guide

Wenningstedt-Braderup is the vacation to cure all ailments

Out on the North Sea island of Sylt, Wenningstedt-Braderup was once a chic spa town where the great and the good came to "take a cure." There's still a definite upscale vibe to the place, though these days you'll find that Wenningstedt-Braderup vacation rentals cater to a mixed crowd of laid-back seaside lovers and water sports enthusiasts. It's a great place to soak up some sun, stroll in the dunes, and refresh yourself with a dip in the water. As the name implies, there are 2 parts to Wenningstedt-Braderup. Wenningstedt's where most of the action is, while Braderup's a quieter, more residential area.

Things to do

They don't make 'em like they used to in the old days

Back in the Neolithic period, things were built to last, and the Denghoog tomb is a case in point. Knocked together around 3,000 years ago, this ancient burial mound is on the outskirts of town, and you can even snoop round the burial chamber. There are several other ancient remains dotted around, while another of Sylt's famous attractions is the Uwe Dune—the island's highest dune, with glorious views. And if you're wanting to see what's under the water as well as what's on top of it, why not check out the Sylt Aquarium, which specializes in North Sea creatures.

Activities

Where the all-over tans are literally all over

With a Wenningstedt-Braderup vacation rental, chances are the beach is going to play a big part in your plans. The wide, sandy beaches and dunes are the island's most famous feature, and they're popular with swimmers, sunbathers, and water sports enthusiasts. Remember that this is Germany, the spiritual home of nudism, so don't be surprised if you find some of your fellow beachgoers working on a very literal all-over tan. Hiking in the dunes and the nature reserves is also popular, or you could take an excursion across to the neighboring Danish island of Romo on the ferry.

Weather

Come on in, the water's lovely round here

The island location of your Wenningstedt-Braderup vacation rental means it's got climate quirks all of its own. Winters are slightly warmer than on the mainland, while summers are a touch cooler. As for the water, despite its reputation as a beach destination, a dip in the North Sea is best described as "invigorating" even in the height of summer. The exposed location also means Sylt can get a bit of wind. In the summer, that makes it prime territory for windsurfers, while in the winter, it can see the shoreline battered with some pretty impressive seas.

Natural features

Oh I do like to be beside the Syltside...

Wenningstedt-Braderup is on the curiously shaped island of Sylt, out in the North Sea. It's pretty much as far north as you can get in Germany, and in fact, if you float a message in a bottle out to sea, it's got more chance of ending up in Denmark. Sylt's known for its sandy beaches and dunes, and for having a fairly flat terrain without much tree cover. It's home to all sorts of wildlife rarities, including wildflowers, butterflies, migratory birds, and natterjack toads. And if you're more about the marine life, you'll want to go looking for harbor porpoises and seals.
