Beach, forest, landscape and more

Surrounded by a rich forest, Ulsnis is located directly at the Gunnebyer Noor in close proximity of the Schlei. A token of this forest is the oldest oak tree of Schleswig-Holstein which can be seen on a traffic refuge in the village Hestoft-Nord. The suffix "nis" in Ulsnis refers to a headland. The village seems rather large due to the farmers of the medieval age who used to manage several oxgangs.

It is this vastness in the country which makes this village a special holiday location. Ulsnisstrand is a bathing spot at the Schlei where you can enjoy the summer in a natural atmosphere. Even passenger ships stop here which makes this spot ideal to discover the entire region and of course the village itself on foot or by bike.

According to legend, a giant with his son once lived in Ulsnis. The son driven to become independent moved to Rieseby in Schwansen. A bitter competitive battle broke out between the two of them in life which must have been giant fun.

A couple of years back, one of the most popular residents, Andi Feldmann, placed a flamboyant sculpture of the Ulsnis Giant in the village. Perhaps you can spot it, which shouldn't be too hard.

Real village romance at the Schlei Villages

We're living at a metropolis. My children do not know cows or sheeps, geese or ducks. During farm vacation at the Schlei villages they get in touch with the wide world of animals and are also able to play beautiful nature surroundings. To give these wonderful experiences to my children I always love to come back to the Schlei Villages.
