Attractions on Römö (Rømø)

As one of the most important island holiday destinations for tourists, the island of Römö naturally also has a lot to offer its visitors.
The so-called Kommandeurshof is one of the most famous excursion destinations on the whole island. A part of the Danish National Museum is included here today. Not far from there is the “Toftum Skole”, which is the oldest and smallest school in Denmark. This is a small house that was built in 1784 and consisted of only one room, i.e. a classroom.
The church on the island of Römö, called Röml Kirke, was built as early as 1200. This church is dedicated to the patron saint of seafarers, Saint Clemens.
The Römö-Sommerland is particularly suitable for families with children. This is a leisure center that has grown larger and more attractive since the 1980s.

The most important place on the island of Rømø, Havneby, has its own port, which was and still is of great importance for fishermen and seafarers in particular. There is also a nature reserve in Havneby called Helmodde. Above all, there are many oystercatches, brent geese and eider ducks to be found here.
The widest sandy beach in all of Northern Europe is on Römö. This of course makes the island a true paradise for many bathers and beach lovers. This beach is around 8.5 kilometers long and has only the finest sand, which is removed from Sylt and washed up again on Römö. By the way, you can easily get to Sylt with the Syltrexpress, a small Sylt ferry.
