Wget fails to download a pdf from a direct link

I am trying to use wget to download a pdf file. I have a direct link to the pdf document and input the following into command line:

wget -A pdf -nc -np -nd --content-disposition --wait=1 --tries=5 "https://prospektbestellung.nordseetourismus.de/mediafiles/Sonstiges/Ortsprospekte/amrum2021.pdf"

This uses a lot of unnecessary options, but they should not mess with the outcome, which is:

HTTP request sent, awaiting response... Read error (Unknown error) in headers.

Is there any way to fix this directly using wget or are there any other solutions, preferably in Python, which I could consider?

Answer

A python based solution below

import requests

url = 'https://prospektbestellung.nordseetourismus.de/mediafiles/Sonstiges/Ortsprospekte/amrum2021.pdf'
r = requests.get(url)
with open('my_file.pdf', 'wb') as f:
    f.write(r.content)
