The island of Sylt really provides some great nature and it is an excellent place to calm down, relax, do long walks or bike rides and enjoy some great food - here are some impressions:
On the way back home I decided to take the Inter City train from Westerland/Sylt to Hamburg which takes ca. 3 hours 30 minutes.
Here are some impressions of the old fashioned but cosy 1st class InterCity cars that were used on this day and train.

The InterCity also featured a BordBistro to catch some snacks and drinks - I was surprised they continue to offer the full service in those Corona days. I bought a beer and warm ham & cheese panini and had it at my seat:
