Uthörn is a small German island adjacent to Sylt in the district of Nordfriesland, and as such it is Germany's northernmost isle right after Sylt proper. It belongs to the List municipality.
The island is situated in the so-called Königshafen , a bay on the eastern shore of Sylt which is facing the shallow tidal flats of the Wadden Sea in that area. Uthörn is located north of the town of List, only a kilometre away from the Ellbogen peninsula of Sylt, which is in fact Germany's northernmost area.
