Kampen

Kampen - Holiday Apartments and Information about Kampen

Kampen is for many the epitome of the glamarous side of Sylt. In July and August, a lot goes on in this rather quiet little place (700 inhabitants), when everybody who’s anybody meets up here. Otherwise, especially since the end of the wild 60s, it has always been rather quiet here in the village to the north-east of the island.
