Bird and nature lovers should pay a visit to the northern tip of Amrum. An Odde is a headland that juts out into the sea. The Amrumer Odde is about 2 kilometers long and up to 200 meters wide. It emerged from the Kniepsand - a sandbank off the coast of Amrum, which slowly migrates to the east - emerged and consists of up to 40 meters high dune landscape. The steady north wind carried sand off the knee-wad and caused the odde to emerge. It is used by many birds as a breeding and nesting site and is therefore protected. Sometimes you can even watch seals and gray seals that are near the beach.
