Guesthouse in Sylt, which became an artist's refuge during the 1920s and 1930s.

Kliffende was a guesthouse, its proprietor Clara Tiedemann, on the edge of the red cliffs on the island of Sylt off the west coast of Schleswig Holstein. It was built in 1923, and became a visiting place for important figures in the world of the arts from then until the beginning of World War II. Chief among them was Thomas Mann (whose The Magic Mountain was written in the Sylt area), who frequented the house, sometimes with his son Klaus. Others who stayed there or visited included Ernst Rowohlt, Emil Nolde, René Sintenis, and the conductors Erich Kleiber and Bruno Walter.

Anthony van Hoboken describes a visit to Kliffende in August 1928 (OJ 11/54, [24] and Schenker's reply OJ 89/2, [7]).
