Schleswig-Holstein is characterized by its scenic and cultural versatility. The rough North Sea with islands and Halligen, the Baltic Sea with its steep coastlines and white sand beaches. The northern seacoast of Schleswig-Holsteins stretches from the south to the Danish border to Denmark to Brunsbüttel on the lock to the Kiel Canal. The Baltic Sea stretches between Lübeck, Travemünde and the German-Danish border in the north.
North Friesland lies between the Danish border and the Eidersperrwerk. In between is the peninsula Eiderstedt: Wide sandy beaches and up to eight meters high pile dwelling form the north sea beach of the St. Peter-Ording famous by surfers. Kitesurfers, beach sailors and beach chairs where the eye can reach. In the sea lie the North Frisian islands Amrum, Föhr and Sylt and the Halligen. The northern seas are well-being and can be felt everywhere.
Between the popular port cities of Flensburg and Kiel you will find a varied landscape. At the top of the north, directly on the east coast, there is the nature reserve Geltinger Birk. Further south you can go to Haithabu in the footsteps of the Vikings.
