“Well worth the view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

You must pay extra to get into this restricted area. There are enough parking spaces available. The amazing views of the island & the dunes is well worth the tax collected. Considering the island is struggling to keep the soil from being eroded, it is best to keep to the designated paths & keep off the dunes.

“a beautyful spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

this is a great spot to relax, to dream and to start a nice chilling walk from. Ellenbogen is a sandy hook at the most northern part of the island Sylt. you can drive there for a small fee. Dunes, sheep and nature, always a breeze and lot of nature. Highly recommended also to explore by bycicle

“Walk around the corner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2012

This a nice walk along the beach in Sylt. The shape of the island looks like an elbow (Ellenbogen in German) at this point.

“The top north of Germany”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

You can reach Ellenbogen through a small narrow road after having paid the 5 EUR toll. You have two beautiful lighthouses there, the typical dunes and the see on both sides. Let you car on one of the numerous parking areas and have a walk is the splendid nature. A good alternative, if you do not fear the wind, is to drive a bike.
This is a must place at Sylt !
