Amrum Cruises

Amrum is one of the North Frisian Islands on the German coast of the North Sea. It is part of the Nordfriesland district in the federal state of Schleswig-Holstein. Its area is 20 km' ², and its population is 2,400.

There are five villages on the eastern coast: Wittdà ¼n, Nebel, Norddorf, Sà ¼ddorf and Steenodde. The western half of the island is occupied by a large dune area; the highest dune is 32 m high.

While Nebel, Norddorf and Steenodde are very old Frisian hamlets, the small town of Wittdà ¼n was founded as a seaside resort in the 19th century. It is now the largest inhabited place on the island and includes the ferry port, which provides ferry connections to Dagebà ¼ll (on the mainland) and Wyk (on Fà ¶hr). Cars are allowed on the island, although there is just one single road.
