Harbour city of Kappeln

The Maritime centre of the Schlei and Baltic Sea region

If you're looking for a pristine maritime atmosphere in an urban setting, Kappeln is the perfect choice to spend your holidays. As soon as you cross the flap bridge into the town centre, you can enjoy the view of the worldwide unique 15th century fish weir. The city celebrates its annual Heringstage (Herring Days) on Ascension Day weekend.

Feel the romance on a walk at the Museum Harbour and the harbour line. Snug pubs and excellent restaurants offer regional delicacies here.

The Amanda Mill in Kappeln is another romantic place: civil marriages can be arranged in the wedding chamber next to the tourist information. In addition, the mill's gallery offers a wonderful panoramic view across this Schlei town.

If you want to immerse yourself into the region, take a relaxing ride on the Angelner steam train from Kappeln to Süderbrarup along the Schlei villages. Holidaymakers not only enjoy the town of Kappeln but also the long beach of the Weidefelder Strand at the Baltic Sea where you can go swimming, sunbathing, sailing and surfing.
