In the north-eastern part of Schleswig-Holstein the waves of the Baltic Sea in Geltinger Bucht reach the holiday area called Ostangeln, an area of uncontaminated nature and fresh sea air far from the mass tourism and therefore an attractive holiday destination and recreational area. If you go for a holiday here, you can breathe in the mild Baltic Sea air, enjoy life in the middle of the clean and fresh salty water, relax on the beautiful beaches without paying any kind of resort fee or you can follow the marked paths for a walk or a bike ride in the lovely nature. On your way through this fantastic area you can enjoy the many different types of landscapes, old half-timbered houses, traditional farms, elegant manors and churches from the Middle Ages. If you love unspoilt nature and rural surroundings, this is the ideal place – at each time of the year – to spend the perfect holiday.
The area and surroundings are ideal for families with children of various ages – not just because of the beautiful sandy beaches with low water, but also because of the various family friendly tourist attractions. Go for instance by boat to GlŘcksburg, the castle by the water, surrounded by a gorgeous park with a rose garden and beautiful, old trees. A visit in Schleswig must include the cathedral, and Flensburg is a charming town worth visiting. Here you will find the interesting museum harbour, fine shopping possibilities and a cosy and lively market place. In Kappeln there is a wheel steam boat which takes you on 2-4 hours trips on the river Schlei. There are also bicycle and boat rentals, different riding schools, a water world called Aqua Tropikana in Damp and a golf course in Rabenkirchen, so the choice is immense as to an active and exciting holiday.
