Sylt Transport Association

With its public bus service, the Sylt Transport Association (Sylter Verkehrsgesellschaft or SVG) ensures that holiday-makers in Sylt are able to reach all of the island’s destinations easily and comfortably. This is particularly helpful when the weather is playing up and a walk isn’t really the most appealing of activities. The SVG also has a range of exiting day-trips on offer.
