At the lighthouse of Kampen lies a group of burial mounds. One of them are the Jüdelhooger, which consist of the two mounds Gurt Jüdelhoog and Litj Jüdelhoog (I guess in Frisian "Gurt" means "big/great" and Litj means "little"). The mounds are located southeast of the lighthouse and east of the Brönshooger Weg. On the other side of this roads are the Brönshooger group and northeast the Gonnenhoog.

To get to the burial mounds, coming from Wenningstedt on the L52, turn right at the traffic lights in Kampen into the Braderuper Weg. After 180 m, just after you pass the Restaurant Club Rotes Kliff on the left side, turn right into Alte Dorfstraße. After about 100 m turn half left into the Brönshooger Weg. The roads leads directly to the lighthouse of Kampen, however about 300 m before you reach the lighthouse, the road is closed to public traffic, so you have to walk this distance.

Burial mounds at the Kampen lighthouse

On the highest point of the Sylt Geest around the Kampen lighthouse are some Bronze Age burial mounds.

This map was created by the local researcher C.P. Hansen (1803-1879) in Sölring, the Sylt Frisian.
It shows the location of the burial mounds in 1857. Some of the mounds no longer exist today.
