Families and children

Whether it's a holiday on a farm, building sandcastles on the beach, an exciting visit to a museum or a wild ride on a rollercoaster, Schleswig-Holstein has everything you need for a great holiday with children.

Experience an unforgettable family holiday in Schleswig-Holstein! From the maritime coastal towns on the North Sea and Baltic Sea to the idyllic lakes and forests between the coasts, the true north offers numerous opportunities for young and old. Whether beach days, cycle tours, trips to the zoo or adventures at the amusement park - there is something for everyone. Look forward to shared experiences and exciting days in Germany´s true north!


Whether it's a sandy, green or pebble beach, when the waves of the North or Baltic Sea break and the seagulls screech, it's time to take a break. A bike trip, a canoe tour or a taster course in sailing or stand-up paddling will provide the necessary activity. When the clouds roll in, there are plenty of opportunities for a day in our animal and nature parks, museums, spas and swimming pools or indoor playgrounds. Sounds good, doesn't it?
