Land between two seas

The federal state of Schleswig-Holstein is in the far north of Germany. Its capital is Kiel, whose lively streets, romantic courtyards, market squares and port have a timeless, Nordic feel. Schleswig-Holstein offers a wide range of water and land-based opportunities for all ages, from extreme sports fans to keen amateurs and the health-conscious. As a northern "children's paradise", this child-friendly region with attractive leisure facilities is ideal for families. Visitors can relax and feel at home in the many seaside resorts and hotels on both the North Sea and Baltic coasts. The bracing sea air, sun, sand and seawater lift the spirits as well as boosting the immune system. The open sea, coastline, maritime scenery, nature reserves and national parks are characteristic of Schleswig-Holstein's natural beauty.
