US broadcaster CNN recommends Amrum's beach

Throughout the year, the US broadcaster CNN presents a special beach every week. In Australia it is Bondi Beach, in Amrum it is Kniepsand.

Amrum – International recognition for Kniepsand: The extensive sandbank off the North Frisian island of Amrum has made it into a recommendation list of the US news broadcaster CNN.

The station presents a beach for every week of the year on the Internet. The worldwide selection extends across all continents and includes such well-known tourist destinations as Bondi Beach in Australia or the city beach of Barcelona. Several media reported about it.

The CNN editorial team praises Amrum for its white sand dunes, the picturesque Frisian villages and gravestones that tell of people's lives. The island's qualities are calm, wind and waves as well as the charm of the remoteness at any time of the year. dpa
