Description:
List is the northernmost municipality in Germany, located on the North Sea island of Sylt close to Denmark in the district of Nordfriesland in the state of Schleswig-Holstein.

List was originally a Danish settlement, consisting of two farms. List was part of the royal enclaves, which were small areas of the Kingdom of Denmark situated within the duchy of Schleswig, the latter also being governed by the Danish king. After the Danish-German war of 1864, List came to Prussia. The plebiscite of 1920 drew the border just north of List, with the next island (Rømø) being returned to Denmark. After World War I List was turned into a major navy point. Many buildings were built during the Nazi period. Since the 1950s, List's economy is heavily based on the tourist industry.

There is a ferry from List to the Danish island of Rømø. One single road leads south to the island's main town of Westerland. List is surrounded by dunes and moorland and, as the rest of the island, has fine beaches.
