A Vogelkoje is a historic decoy which was used in the past to catch ducks. The Dutch were trailblazers in this technology in the 16th century, the English followed shortly after, and the North Frisian Islands started to make use of it in the 18th century. By the 20th century, most of the decoys had been closed.

A Vogelkoje is comprised of an artificial pond with a net stretched over it. With the help of tame ducks, wild ducks are enticed into a trap at the end of the pond, where the custodian wrings the necks of the captured animals.

The KampenVogelkoje was in use between 1767 and 1921. Today it is one of Sylt’s numerous conservation areas protecting a diverse plant biotope. Here visitors can have an amazing nature experience, rounded off culinarily by the restaurant “Vogelkoje”. If you would like more information, you can take part in a guided tour through the conservation area. Groups need to sign up in advance.
