Adventures in, on and at the water
Nature, culture, beach and swimming
There is something for everybody in this exciting world of the Schlei and Baltic Sea. Immerse yourself in outdoor activities, discover special places in the country or get on your bike and cross the region on two wheels. Numerous bathing spots, swimming lakes and beaches make for exceptional refreshments during the summer while in autumn and winter it provides a special coastal atmosphere.
If you prefer to go on the water rather than in it, what better way to do so than on sailing boats, canoes and kayaks? You will also find perfect conditions for trend sports such as standup paddleboarding or kiteboarding both on the Schlei and Baltic Sea. The "Schleischifffahrt" (shipping on the Schlei) is another even more relaxing way to discover the Schlei and Baltic Sea.
Art, culture and culinary arts
Cultural highlights and culinary treats
Culturally, these regions also have a lot to offer. Follow the historic footsteps in the country and revive the saga of the Vikings and dukes. Imposing museums such as the Gottof Castle or the Hedeby Viking Museum contain valuable, historical artefacts. Small village museums, however, focus more on farming and unique works of art.
As these exercises surely work up an appetite, most things you find on your plate come directly from the region of the Schlei and Baltic Sea. Small cafés and restaurants serve sweet and hearty delicacies in a snug atmosphere. Fish stalls and smokehouses are the ideal places for snacks between meals. And if you want to put your own culinary skills to the test, don't miss out on the local farmer's markets or a visit to one of the many small farm shops in the vicinity. Perhaps you’ll want to buy a tasty souvenir like marmalade, honey or sausages.
