The municipality is located on the island of Pellworm – one of the North Frisian Islands on the North Sea coast of Germany. Its area is 37 km², and its population is roughly 1,200. A landmark is the Old Church (German: Alte Kirche) with its Arp Schnitger organ from about 1710.
In medieval times Pellworm was a part of the larger island of Strand which was torn into pieces in the disastrous Burchardi flood in 1634. Other remnants of Strand are Nordstrand and the Halligen. All these belonged to the historical region of Uthlande.
Together with several smaller islands, Pellworm forms the Amt of Pellworm.
