Welcome to the Baltic Sea
Leave your cares behind and take in the refreshing sea air amid the magnificent scenery of the Baltic Sea coast in Schleswig-Holstein. Here you’ll find endless beaches of fine sand that are perfect for rest and relaxation all year round. And Germany’s northernmost state also offers a wealth of attractions beyond the coast, including castles surrounded by water, Gothic churches and nature parks.
Day trips near the Baltic Sea coast
The city of Kiel and the Holstein Switzerland area are two of the region’s most interesting destinations. In the state capital of Kiel you can take in the harbour atmosphere and watch the boats go by on the Kiel Fjord. Lübeck’s historic centre, which has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is an attractive destination for a day trip in the region. On the Kiel Canal, the most heavily trafficked man-made waterway in the world, you can see luxury ocean liners and freight ships passing by. The hilly landscape of the Holstein Switzerland area offers the perfect terrain for nature lovers and cyclists looking to test their endurance, and is home to a wide variety of birds and rare plants. And throughout the countryside and the picturesque harbour towns along the coast you’ll find a wide range of inviting restaurants and fine dining establishments, whether you want to take a short break or enjoy an extended meal.
Gourmet and active holidays
You don’t have to be a gourmet to appreciate the high quality of the region’s freshly caught herring or the earthy taste of its tender lamb. Freshly shelled North Sea shrimp are an additional delicacy that is unique to the area. And active travellers will enjoy the expansive countryside offering numerous possibilities for cycling, water sports and hiking just a short distance away.
