A short flight or train ride from Hamburg is the sophisticated and windswept isle of Sylt, an arc-shaped spit of sand lying in the North Sea. A favorite summer enclave of Hamburg residents, the island boasts long stretches of pristine beach, charming towns filled with excellent restaurants and boutiques and quaint, thatched-roof cottages.
