DESTINATIONS germany sylt Shopping Kampen


Kampen, Sylt’s most exclusive village, might be home to only 600 people, but there are nevertheless branches of designers like Bulgari, Cartier, Louis Vuitton, Swarovski and Tod’s, each in its own thatched cottage. Stroll through the shops on Strönwai, Kampen’s most well-known shopping street, and those in the Kurhausstrasse, Hauptstrasse and "Zur Uwe Düne," and you really will get a feel for how cosmopolitan and sophisticated Kampen is.


Thanks to its status as a playground of the rich and famous, there is no shortage of designer shops on Sylt. However, it is not all about labels on the island – smaller, cuter shops and boutiques can also be found here. Kampen is home to elegant jewellers and designer boutiques with their luxury wares, while a wider, more down-to-earth variety of goods can be found in Westerland. The shops on Sylt are a must for lovers of tea, honey and jam. Also worth a look are the art and craft shops and studios, traditional in the village of Rantum. Similar delights are also found hidden in the side-streets of Keitum.
