Between Lauenburg and Stormarn, the north is excitingly different. Here you don’t go by cutter, but rather by canoe. Here you don’t walk through the mudflats but through the forest. Here the wind doesn’t blow across the sea, but over wild and romantic lakes. The trail leads through enchanted nature, past nature parks, protected areas, rustic farm cafés and lookout towers. Historic towns invite you to travel back in time and meet Till Eulenspiegel in the Duchy of Lauenburg. Among the most famous places in Stormarn is the town of Ahrensburg with its castle. If you want to discover the special magic of this landscape in south-eastern Schleswig-Holstein, you should do it in slow motion. Calm down, switch off your mind completely, and breathe deeply. This works particularly well here. Whether it be just for a few days or for a long break from everyday life.
