Please check local regulations for: Dünenlandschaft auf dem Roten Kliff/Sylt
The Uwe Dune is about 1 km from Kampen. A wooden staircase with 110 steps leads to the viewing platform on its summit. The view is gigantic and in good weather you can not only look over large parts of Sylt, but even to the Danish North Sea island of Rømø and to the German and Danish mainland.

The 52.5 meter high Uwe dune is the highest point on the island and is well worth it. You have a good all-round view from her. It's not too far from the parking lots or you can easily incorporate them into a round trip. Not far away is the beacon and the red cliff. The dune area around the dune is also worth seeing.

From here you can see not only the black and white lighthouse of Kampen, also called "Langer Christian", but also the west beach and the Wadden Sea in the east. In good weather you even have a nice overview of almost the entire island, from the Lister harbor to the Morsum cliff!
The 110 steps are really worthwhile!

Wonderful view after 110 steps Ascent to the highest point Sylts (52.5 m), even more beautiful is the descent with a wide view over the dunes to the north, as you almost dizzy.
Great starting point for the experience of the Red Cliff. I recommend a walk north to the crossbright fire, then down the wooden stairs, then left towards the beach to "Kaamps 7", there maybe a little refreshment. Then about 2 km between the waterline and the Red Cliff (after a few 100 m), then the wooden stairs back up to the Uwe dune.
