“Tradition means obligation.”
We remember the times when riding was very closely associated with the Rungholt at its best. For many years, sylt-lovers enjoyed a famous hunting-community and if you needed to refresh during the sport you spontaneously stopped at the “Reiterbar” for a classic “Rungholt-Reiterdrink”.
So, if you are still travelling old fashioned by horse, our chef barkeeper Monika Wallner will honor you with a free drink for guarantee.
You can find a privately owned horse breeding ranch and a riding school at the neighbouring studs — you can also stable your own horse there, stage tournaments and enjoy the countryside on horseback.
The origin of the Rungholt dates back to 1894, when Peter Friedrich Nann, the granduncle of the current hotel director, bought the “Fährhaus Munkmarsch”, another hotel on the island. Nann was an agile man from Nothern Germany with a large heart and a talent for investments. Only 6 years later did he buy the “Hotel zum Kronprinzen” in Wenningstedt and rented the “Kurhaus Kampen” which used to throne on Kampen’s “red cliff”. Soon after he constructed the “Logierhaus Meeresblick” next door. In 1933 he finally built the “Rungholt”.
The hotel got its name from the city Rungholt, which was located around the area of todays Nordstrand. It’s famous for being the Atlantis of the North Sea. In Januar 1362 the city sunk in the “Marcellusflut” which cost 100.000 lives. Just recently in the 1920s and 30s, remains of the city were found in the mudflats and its existence was finally proven. The myth of the lost city was created by the poem »Trutz, blanke Hans« (1882) by Detlev von Liliencron. It starts with the line: »Heute bin ich über Rungholt gefahren, die Stadt ging unter vor 600 Jahren ...« Which means: Today I travelled above Rungholt, the city sunk 600 years ago.
Many shovels, one single electric conveyor and only 80 brave men including a very young Dietrich Erdmann came together in the almost empty Kurhausstrasse. Gathered by his uncle Max and his aunt Netty Nann they began to construct the Hotel Rungholt I in 1933.
In an astonishing afford, the hotel was built in only 100 days and was ready to open for the small number of guests Kampen had in the season of 1933. The hotel changed and grew over the last decade, after 3 generations of the Erdmann family and a tremendous amount of love and dedication, the hotel is what it is today.
It didn’t take long and the Rungholt, in cooperation with the Kurhaus, established itself as a hot spot for celebrities. Luxurious festivities, discussions at the Reiterbar, playing tennis in white clothes, and big groups taking out their prestigious horses. Netty Nann guided the hotel in this direction because she was a great horse-riding enthusiast herself. Unfortunately, 1939, the war brought this era to an end. When Max Nann died, his widow Netty put up the Kurhaus for lease. But it didn’t take long and she had new plans in mind. At the end of the 50s she rebuilt and reopened the Hotel. In 1966, she sold the Kurhaus and Meeresblick because she had a vision. It was time for Rungholt II.
The first change of family generation took place in 1970, when Netty Nann died and passed on the hotel to her nephew Dietrich Erdmann. At this time, he and his family were living far away in the middle of Germany. But not scared of the new task, they took all the courage and started a new life in Kampen. They renovated the hotel and built a connection between Rungholt I and II. In 1985, 1989 and 1990 the hotel changed its face continuously with minor new architectural tweaks.
1994 marked the second change of family generation, Sabine and Dirk Erdmann took over the Hotel. In the following years, they upgraded the Rungholt to meet 21st century expectations and gave it their very own beautiful touch: They redesigned the lobby as well as the restaurant, the Reiterbar and all rooms, created new suites and build a new spa.
