Our region

The perfect place for everyone!

Between Kiel and Flensburg, only a few hour's drive from Hamburg, is one of the most beautiful destinations in the north: the cosy port town of Kappeln. The region around the 43 kilometre long Baltic Sea fjord Schlei is characterised by rolling hills, lush green forests and pastures, picturesque towns and villages as well as endless sandy beaches and romantic bays.

Whether bathing or active holiday, whether culture or nature, whether spring, summer, autumn or winter: the Schlei region is worth a visit for every occasion and at every season!

Of course, it is especially beautiful in the summer months, because numerous bays invite you to sunbathe and cool off in the Baltic Sea. Fine sandy beaches with adjoining restaurants and beach chairs for hire or natural and secluded bays for swimming: Here every visitor finds his perfect place! Bright yellow rape fields, colourful flower meadows or fields covered with dew are best experienced outside the summer months. Let the wind blow around your nose during a walk on the beach or take advantage of the varied cultural offers of the region. You are sure to find a nice window seat in one of the numerous restaurants and cafés.

Location, region and leisure

Cities and shopping

Walk through the small and very cosy old town of Kappeln, visit the cultural city of Schleswig or take a tour to the port city of Flensburg. Also Sonderborg - on the Danish side - can be reached in 1.5 hours by car. Even for the delicious soft ice cream and the traditional hot dog the trip is worthwhile!

Beaches & Sea

Only 10 minutes away by car is the nearest and beautiful fine sandy beach "Weidefeld". Numerous other bays can be found within a radius of 15 kilometres. Wide stretches of beach that invite you to take a walk, quiet and lonely bays for those seeking peace and quiet or beaches with adjoining restaurants and playground for the little ones: from Damp to Gelting you are spoilt for choice.

On the way with children

A trip with the fishing steam train, indoor playground Damp, barefoot park Schwackendorf, Phänomenta in Flensburg, Viking village Haithabu, discovery bath or simply go to the beach and build sandcastles, collect shells and shower stones? Whatever your family wants to experience: there is no lack of offers and possibilities here.

Art & Culture

Sights such as Gottorf Castle, the Museumsberg Flensburg, the Viking Museum Haithabu or the imposing St. Peter's Cathedral, which is one of the most renowned cultural monuments of the north, should not be missed. Also the combined tram-train bascule bridge of Lindaunis, the Kappelner Herring Fence or one of the romantic fieldstone churches of this region are worth a visit. In Arnis, Germany's smallest town, you will find numerous historic fishermen's houses and a boat church with votive ships. 

Water sports & water tours

The holiday region around the Schlei and the Baltic Sea is an El Dorado for water sports. Here you are at home both on and off the water. No matter whether you want to cruise through the Schlei or the extensive Baltic Sea, or whether you prefer to discover the natural river courses and floodplains - sports in the cool water are very popular here. Windsurfers and kiters will find countless spots on the Baltic Sea, which offer perfect access and ideal parking facilities. If you like it a little bit more "comfortable", grab your SUP and paddle along the beautiful Baltic Sea coast, on the Schlei or on one of the many natural rivers and lakes.

If you prefer to be chauffeured and discover the multi-faceted region, we recommend a trip on one of the numerous steamers. You can start one of the unforgettable tours directly from the Kappelner harbour, which is only 300 metres away.

Hiking, walking & cycling

Whether you are a beginner or a professional: look forward to a perfectly signposted network of over 800 kilometres of trails - the largest connected hiking and walking network in Europe!

Cyclists also get their money's worth in our region. Five perfectly signposted theme tours from the Schleiufer-Törn to the Schlemmer-Törn make you want to go on excursions along the Schlei and the Baltic Sea.
