#10. Island of Sylt

Nature is the main attraction on this sliver of an island in the North Sea (reached by car train). It is a place of wind, sand dunes, heavy surf, sea birds, and fine hotels and restaurants. It has long been a hideaway for Germany's rich and is a complete change of pace from the rest of the country. Take warm clothing, even in summer.
