Eu­t­in

The cultural town of Eutin at the heart of Holstein Switzerland is lovingly referred to as the “Weimar of the North”. Surrounded by numerous lakes, gentle hills and green forests, guests are met with an idyllic backdrop. The highlight is the impressive Eutin Castle right by the lake.

The “Weimar of the North” welcomes you with highly attractive natural landscapes, surrounded by numerous lakes, forests and gentle hills.

The cultural heart of Holstein Switzerland beats in Eutin. Not only during the Eutin Festival in summer – the open-air opera house in the beautiful castle grounds – but also during the summer concerts in the hunting lodge, the town festival in the historical Old Town and at a plethora of other events.

Use the media guide to explore the bel étage of this former prince-bishop castle, trace the story of Eutin’s Carl Maria v. Weber in the neighbouring museum, take a tour with a garbed nightwatchman, try a tasting tour of the brewery, observe kingfishers and otters on a trip on the lake, take a break for a cappuccino in the old marketplace or rummage in small shops in the little alleyways ... this is what adventure in Eutin looks like.

Of course, you can also embark on wonderful hiking, biking or paddling tours from Eutin into the surrounding hilly countryside dotted with woods and lakes – after all, the nature park starts from the Stadtbucht lakeside promenade.
