Attractions to explore nearby Kniepsand
The Kniepsand, formerly Knipsand is an extremely slow-moving sandbank in the North Sea. It lies west of the Schleswig-Holstein island of Amrum and covers an area of around 10 km². The Föhr-Amrum office specifies the area of Amrum with and without Kniepsand. Since the area is not usually flooded, it is high sand.
The Amrum lighthouse is in the south of the German North Sea island of Amrum, about two kilometers west of Wittdün. It belongs to the municipality of Nebel and is one of the landmarks of the island. It is open to the public in the summer months. Also on Amrum are the beacons of Norddorf and Nebel and the disused fire carriers of Wittdün. The Wriakhörn beacon was dismantled in 2016.
