  • See how the rise of the global sea level changes the coastlines of our continents and learn about the consequences this has for Sylt and humankind.

  • Peek into the world of seals and whales.

  • Take a look at climate events from an astronaut’s point of view.

  • Experience the phenomenon of Germany’s largest migrating dune in the north of Sylt.

Here at “Erlebniszentrum Naturgewalten,” we show you the wonders—big and small—of climate, weather, climate research, and life in the force of nature that is the North Sea. Learn all about the Wadden Sea, weather events, coastal protection, and renewable energy with interactive exhibits.
