    The Kniepsand is a 15 km long and 1.5 km wide sandbar off the coast of Amrum. It is a sandbar that has moved closer and closer to the island over time and has finally united with it. The Kniepsand lies above sea level, thus forming a so-called high sand, and is therefore not washed over by the North Sea even during high tide.
    Simply a dream beach!

    Is also suitable for hiking because of the solid sand.

    Due to the beach dune upstream (currently directly connected to the beach) creates a supernatural wide beach. About 1.5 km wide.

    About 12 square kilometers large is the sandbar, which represents a natural island protection.

    From the dune dunes in fog, the boardwalk leads straight over Kniepsand to the beach. In the evening, the photographers meet here for the sunset.

    Great, in places a little elevated path with some lookouts offer a great view of nature.

    The Kniepsand on the west side of Amrum is an absolute experience with its white, floury sand and its great width.

    In the evening light, the dune path to Kniepsand is particularly appealing.
