Steinbergkirche

Hiking and cycling holidays at the Baltic Sea

The municipality Steinbergkirche was once named Bredegatt and got its present name only in 1963. In 1970, the former municipalities Gintoft, Hattlund and Westerholm were incorporated and, on March 1, 2013, the municipal Quern was added.

There are some very good reasons to spend your holidays here in Steinbergkirche. You can find easy access to cycling and hiking routes, which lead through the amazingly hilly landscape of Angeln with its impressive panoramic views of the Baltic Sea and the Flensburg firth in the background. A couple of small bays and natural beaches invite you to rest or to go swimming in the summer season.

Charming cultural sights are also available, such as the Saint Martin fieldstone church, which was built in the 12th century. Probably the oldest lime tree in Angeln can be found on the church cemetery. With a circumference of nine metres, it was planted during the Protestant Reformation. Underneath this lime tree, the Kirchspielsthing (the parish's court) was held.

Another sight is the Bismarck Tower built in 1903 on top of the 70-metre high Scheersberg near Steinbergkirche. This 32-metre high tower was built in honour of Otto von Bismarck 1st Chancellor of Germany. The inscription of the marble slab above the entrance and the 373 donation stones with the donator's names chiselled in are particularly interesting.
