Mu­seums, mu­sic and lit­er­at­ure

Around 240 museums in Schleswig-Holstein tell stories of the land, its people and the sea. They present art and cultural history from the Stone Age until today, explain scientific phenomena and illustrate technical developments. Guided tours and opportunities to join in are ideal for families who like to be creative on their holidays and try out innovative ideas.

And it’s not just the museums that are turned into concert halls for festivals and concert series such as the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival. Churches, estates or ferries also form the backdrop for international musicians, major works and composers. In Niendorf, the port area including a dockyard even becomes the stage for a jazz festival: JazzBaltica. Industrial history and music combined – an inspiring cultural pleasure.

For you, culinary delights and a bit of wellness are all part of a cultural holiday? With their “Cultural Dream Arrangements”, our Ringhotel partners are offering you their worry-free package for your “dream cultural holiday” in Schleswig-Holstein.
