Sieseby

The thatched beauty

About 10 kilometres southwest of Kappeln lies Sieseby in the Thumby municipality, known far beyond the village borders as the thatched-roof village. Börentwedt is also characteristic for its beautiful thatched-roof houses. Sieseby is especially known for its thatched-roof houses, presenting the maritime flair of this timeless village.

The oldest building in this village is the field-stone church built in the 12th century. Surrounded by many old trees this place presents an almost sacred atmosphere. In the past, this village once belonged to the Hamburg merchant Gustav Anton Schäffer and his initials G.A.S can still be found today on many of the listed thatched-roof houses. It's mostly thanks to him that this village with its quaint houses is still in such good shape.

In the 19th century, Schäffer sold the village for 615,000 reichstaler to the House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg, owners of Glücksburg Castle. The panoramic views of the Schlei in Sieseby are particularly beautiful. Discover this place by bike, on foot or arrive by boat with the Schleidampfer, which heads to Sieseby on a regular basis.

Absolutely relaxing at the Peninsula

I love to spend my vacation on the Peninsula together with my family. We often use our camper. Last year we had also spend some days in a beautiful holiday home in Langholz together with my grandparents. We really enjoyed it over there as well.

And my children had also have a lot of fun at the Ostsee Resort of Damp during the last few years.
