Friday, 23th of October 2020. Sylt in times of the corona pandemic IX.

Dear Guests,
Dear friends of Hotel Benen-Diken-Hof ®,
Dear friends of the Island Sylt.


The “ban on accommodation in Schleswig-Holstein” was lifted.
Our guests can arrive again without having to prove a negative corona test.

However, we would urge you not to arrive if you feel ill (corona symptoms fever
and dry cough) or have had direct contact with a Covid-19 infected person..

Basically …

After the Corona shutdown we started into a “new normality”. Our offers are almost complete again, not everything is possible, nor should we underestimate the risk of infection. Let us behave respectfully; let us continue to be careful.

With our “hotel concept of spaciousness” our guests can feel largely safe – just like in their own home. Because we offer 68 self-contained apartments or houses alone, in which you can relax and stay at a sufficient distance from your surroundings.

Our Corona concept stands.

You arrive and check in equipped with your mouth and nose protection (mask) at the reception desk – hotel rooms and hotel apartments in Benen-Diken-Hof ®, domiciles in our office at Keitum station.

Please note the current check-in/checkout times:
CheckOut until 10.00 a.m., CheckIn from 4.00 p.m.

Nice to have you here.

From now on, behave as you would at home.

Special behaviour patterns in the hotel we have developed with our


which we regularly adapt to the development of the measures defined by the state government.

What’s up? The milon®– circle can be used with prior reservation. Cosmetic facial treatments are possible, and massages as well as manicure and pedicure treatments can also be booked. Use of the pool and Finnish sauna is also possible with prior reservation.

What is unfortunately not possible? Bar, bio-sauna, steam bath and SPA cannot yet be used again. Childcare cannot yet be offered again.

So this is the “new normality” … keep your distance, use masks, keep to yourself, avoid crowds, wash/disinfect hands regularly … be in the fresh air, explore the island, cycle, hike, jump into the surf, relax, recover – enjoy Sylt.

Stay healthy and see you soon.

Your hosts at Benen-Diken-Hof ®,

Anja & Claas-Erik Johannsen and Johannes Welker
