Sylt, in Germany

cartoon style map of Sylt

Sylt is an island off the coast of Germany in the North Sea.  Historically it was part of the Jutland peninsula which is mainly Denmark.  It is another of those places that has changed nationality a number of times.  There is a unique language, Söl'ring, spoken on the island and it's even taught in primary schools.  It is a North Frisian dialect with a strong Danish influence and with elements of Dutch and, curiously, English.


  1. Beautiful card! (and interesting fact about the language)


  2. I haer about this island in this summer and I look photos of it. Mmm beautiful :) And this map is very nice too :)


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
