About Amrum

Amrum is one of Germany’s North Frisian islands in Schleswig-Holstein and the tenth largest island in the country. There is an extended beach along its entire west coast which is remarkable for its dunes, and the best places to stay in Amrum offer a perfect seaside base.

The island itself is in a state of constant change due to the effects of erosion. For many years it has been a refuge for a wide variety of bird species, marine mammals and plants (many endangered and rare ones) including grey seals and porpoise;

Historically Amrum flourished as a centre for seafaring and salt making - this has now been replaced almost entirely with tourism - but the Frisian language and customs remain. It is also a popular location for the German TV and film industry.

There are three main settlements on the island, the largest of which Nebel, is worth a visit for its local history museum and the Church of St. Clement with its ‘talking gravestones'. In February the island holds the annual ‘Brakendrai’ festival when a hugh bonfire is lit in order to dispel winter.

There are regular ferry services to the island from Dagebull and there is a very good bus service serving all destinations (cars are not encouraged). This is a paradise for cyclists and walkers with an extensive network of trails, and the best places to stay in Amrum have great access to all this and more.

Hotel Hutmann is a peaceful hotel with light charming rooms. Its suites have a sitting room and kitchen. There is a cosy lounge, bar and restaurant. The spa and apartments are arranged around the gardens. The hotel is close to the beach and cycle and walking tours can be organised in house.
