Landschaft Sylt is an Amt in the district of Nordfriesland, in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. It covers the island of Sylt , in the North Sea, about 65 km northwest of Husum. Its administrative seat is in the town Westerland - which is not, however, a part of the Amt.
Note: The total number of inhabitants, under 4,500, is less than the minimum requirement for an independently administrated Amt . The administration of the Amt is thus shared with the Gemeinde Sylt. Since 2009, the seat of the Amt has been located in the townhall of the Gemeinde Sylt in Westerland.
