Surrounded by sea and beach, Hörnum is located at the southern tip of the island of Sylt. An idyll between dunes and Odde. Hörnum impresses with its extraordinary beautiful landscape. The southern tip offers fantastic views of the neighbouring islands of Föhr and Amrum. From the harbour in Hörnum, the white cruise ships start to the neighbouring islands and seal colonies. Hörnum´s landmark is the lighthouse on the dunes, which has shown ships the right way for more than a century.
Hörnum´s harbour festival is a maritime weekend with all that goes with it: North Sea cruises, open ships, the popular crabs pulling competition and maritime shanties, as well as a colourful harbour programme with a fireworks display. The Gafftopsail Schooner Eldorado offers day and evening sails in Hörnum. A real high sea sailing cruise with marvelous views of the west beach of Sylt is awaiting you.
