Winter in Schleswig-Holstein
The true north is multifaceted and a place for holidays and relaxation all year round. Especially in winter, you will find quiet spots and tranquil places on the coasts and in the heart of the country, where the clocks seem to stand still.
Icy winds blow across the land. On the beaches of the North Sea and Baltic Sea, some travellers brave the cold and enjoy a nice long walk. There is no longer any sign of the summer bustle that prevails on the beaches during the warm season. You’d better not forget your bobble hat and scarf when those stormy gusts really let themselves be felt. Even in the heart of Schleswig-Holstein, nature is now in a state of deep hibernation. Hoarfrost envelops the landscape in the true north in countless tiny ice crystals, and offers a glittering natural spectacle to behold.
The sun slowly rises and makes its way through the small slit between the curtains of your hotel room. You pull open the curtains and quickly scurry back under the warm covers. Now you can enjoy the view of the sea. Despite the icy fog, you spot a few seagulls on the horizon making their rounds over the water. Here, where holidaymakers from near and far flock in high season, everything is still quiet. There is also no one on the dyke at this time of day. You are relaxed and rested, and simply let the day take its course. You are not thinking about your everyday life today.
