Anyone boarding the train to Sylt can see it from afar: It is located exactly where the Hindenburg Dam, built in 1927, meets the east of the island, where the Wadden Sea gently flows into green pastureland, where the sky seems very close and the view stretches far and wide. the sky seems very close and the view extends far over land and sea. Here stands the dam keeper’s house under thatch in a solitary location surrounded by nature, surrounded by sheep and seagulls and trees whose leaves rustle gently in the wind. It is the first house on the island, a kind of idyllic outpost. Far and wide no other house in sight – that there is such a gem in this extraordinary location on the popular vacation island still exists at all is a small miracle that has to do with the history of the house. In the 1920s, the Hindenburg Dam was built to connect the island with the mainland and is still the only way to get to Sylt by land. Even before the dam was completed, the first dam keepers moved into the thatched brick house – they were responsible for checking the railroad embankment, keeping it in order and carrying out repairs. In the 1970s, the railroad sold the house, and the owners at the time gradually acquired the land around it as well. They kept sheep and cattle in the meadows around the house, planted trees and bushes. Even today, the house and the land show that a lot of love was put into it. In the meantime the dam keeper’s house is getting a bit long in the tooth – but with its history, the exceptional history, the extraordinary location and the island-typical building style, it charm, which makes the heart of lovers of historic houses beat faster. Around the property there is pure nature. Dike meadows and pastures as far as the eye can see. behind it lies the mud flats. Anyone who has stepped onto the terrace here will be enchanted, for the view from the Dammwärterhaus to the Wadden Sea ends only at the shores of the island of Föhr. When it darkness has fallen, this view takes on a mysterious quality: on the left, where the mainland lies, the lights of the lights of Dagebüll. And if you step far enough in front of the house, you can see the lighthouse on the right. its flashing beacon to the right. A soothing calm then lies over everything. Only the wind blows softly over the dune grass, in the distance the seagulls call. This is what happiness looks like! A conversion of the former dam keeper’s house including a change of use has already been confirmed by a building permit. The building can be converted into a permanent as well as a vacation home, two car parking spaces are already approved. Also the paddock extending in front of the property to the Wadden Sea can be taken over by the new owner. Energy certificate in preparation!

Sylt-Ost / Morsum

Anyone who carelessly passes a small, light-brown stone while walking along the beach is missing out. If you pick it up, take a closer look and hold it up to the sun, you will recognize a beautiful, centuries-old amber. old amber. Morsum, the easternmost village on the island, is also such a small, uncut diamond in the rough, which only shows its true beauty to those who take a closer look. Ten kilometers from the island’s capital Westerland, the landscape impresses with untouched nature, wide fields and unique rock formations. Here you live away from the tourist hustle and bustle and are immediately in the middle of nature, for example, in the nature reserve Morsum Kliff, which provides insights into millions of years of geological history. Spectacular views of the Wadden Sea, the original heath landscape and rare plants such as marsh gentian, spotted orchid or sundew await you on the circular trail. In the distance, thatched farmhouses rise out of the greenery like little islands of their own – Morsum has been agricultural for centuries. Sylt’s oldest church St. Martin is also located here, which was first mentioned in a document in 1240. In the Morsum ‘Muasem Hüs’, island traditions are lovingly cultivated by locals and guests alike. Here people like to chat together in Sölring, the Frisian dialect of the island, or meet for the popular ring riding. Golf enthusiasts will find a 67-hectare 18-hole course with a fantastic view of meadows, forests and the Wadden Sea at the privately run Club Morsum. And who knows, maybe a real amber will be found there during your next walk on the beach …
