Westerland is a seaside resort and a former municipality located on the German North Sea island of Sylt. Since 1 January 2009, Westerland has been part of the municipality Gemeinde Sylt. Westerland is part of the Nordfriesland district in Schleswig-Holstein. It is the largest resort on the island, the local transportation hub and the centre of Sylt's tourist industry.
Westerland is one of the younger settlements on the island of Sylt. After the All Saints' Day Flood of 1436 had utterly destroyed the community of Eidum, the survivors built a new community to the northeast on a heath. The new settlement was called Hedigen .
