A Warft is an artificial hill at the sea protecting houses during storm floods. They are like islands without water surrounding them. I once was living on one for New Year’s Eve vacations. It was the Eggenswarft close to Ockholm, Germany.
It is a silent place within flat land. I went there with a group of friends to enjoy their company while ending the year, for going to the sauna and for getting lots of fresh fish for cooking nice dishes. It was a real pleasure – and the friendly dog of the landlord was visiting us often, too.
