    Almost every day you can observe the gray seal Willi in the harbor basin of Hörnum, which enjoys being fed with fish by the visitors. So she has found a safe source of food - to the delight of the little visitors in particular. Since mid-2017, Hörnum's crowd pleaser is no longer alone. Another gray seal, which was simply christened "Sylta", can now be found here daily with Willi. Since gray seals have become uncommonly rare, especially in front of Sylt, this is of course a very special attraction in Hörnum harbor basin.

    Small port of man with ferries to Amrum and Föhr can drive.
    You can also enjoy mussels and fish dishes at various stalls.
    A little further east is the marina of Hörnum.

    From here the ships go to the seal banks or to the neighboring islands of Amrum and Föhr.

    Update from October 8th, 2020: Apparently, according to the local press, the seal has disappeared, died (?), But a new seal can be seen in the tank. I haven't seen them yet.
