Geltinger Bucht

Nature and Sea in harmony

The great attraction of the Geltinger Bucht is the boundless pleasure it offers – whether you enjoy the fine sands or collect stones at the natural beach. Seaside holidaymakers love the six kilometre long fine-sandy beach at the Baltic Sea in Hasselberg-Kronsgaard which is guarded by lifeguards. Surfers are welcome at the beach sections Gemmeldamm and Oehe – always looking out for the perfect wave.
The area around Wackerballig is more contemplative. This flat-sloping 150-metre long beach section is the ideal place for junior swimmers. 

If you're looking for a natural landscape, try the nature reserve Geltinger Birk. The Charlotte windmill, built in the Dutch style in 1824, is the landmark of this unspoiled nature here at the Geltinger Birk. Both humans and animals can rediscover their slowness in perfect harmony. Here, you can find 170 bird and 20 dragonfly species. Around 200 ancient types of fruit are waiting by the wayside to be enjoyed by cyclists and hikers. Next to the Geltinger Birk, a hiking tour through nature is also possible at Habernis, the isolated gem directly at the entrance of the Flensburg firth.

Northeast of Gelting, the red-and-white Falshöft Lighthouse towers over the Geltinger Birk. With its great views across the Baltic Sea and unspoiled nature, it invites not only holidaymakers but also bridal couples who can get married in a truly heavenly atmosphere.

On a hiking or cycling tour around the nature reserve with a bit of luck you can spot Konik horses which are at home here.

And where do the Schlei and the Baltic Sea meet? At the Schleimünde peninsula, depending on the time of day, it may even look like a Fata Morgana hovering above the water. The contemplative fishing village Maasholm is located near Schleimünde. Enjoy regional delicacies with a view of the Schlei here in the restaurants. Immerse yourself in this snug place with its alleys, gardens and harbours.
