Museums Historic Sites Sightseeing
Germany's northernmost state with coasts on two seas, Schleswig-Holstein seems to possess two very distinct faces. Along its coastlines, the region features wide sandy beaches and is cut by deep fjords carved out by glaciers. These areas near the water contain some of the country's finest resorts and holiday centers. They attract visitors from around the world all year long, and are chock-full of things to do. The highlight of the region's western coast is a sprawling national park that shelters the densest bird population in this part of Europe. Hundreds of different species live or pass over this unusual water landscape, which is featured on the World Heritage list. Deeper inland, the region reveals its rural face. This countryside of seemingly endless pastures spreads as far as the eye can see. Schleswig-Holstein belonged to Denmark until the 19th century. You can expect to notice plenty of Scandinavian overtones while you vacation in the region. Several coastal towns contain award-winning recreations of ancient Viking settlements. Customize your holiday with our Germany holiday planner to create an adventure that suits you.
