Far in the north, between the Flensburg Fjord, the Baltic Sea and the Schlei Fjord inlet, lie unspoilt coastlines, gentle sandy beaches, and charming nature. Here, you also find the Geltinger Bay between the beautiful landscape of Ostangeln and the Geltinger Birk Nature Reserve. The rural scenes here are exhilarating – a feast for your senses at any time of year. In spring, expect yellow rape fields, buzzing bees and lush green meadows where Angeliter cattle graze. In summer, the wheat fields are golden and the air shimmers in the heat above the beaches. During the winter months, the crisp Baltic Sea air drifts over frosty landscapes.

We’ve put together 11 varied and family-friendly circular walks for you in this Collection that range from a leisurely 4-kilometre (2.4 mi) walk to a longer 13-kilometre (8 mi) hike. You can choose between picturesque fishing villages with their typical piers, secluded beaches and grassy paths that lead through paddocks and fields, lighthouses and mills or untouched nature in the Geltinger Birk Nature Reserve. On every route you’ll find charming nature and delightful places.

Don't miss the chance to indulge in regional specialties such as freshly caught fish or hot Angler Muck, a national alcoholic drink traditionally drunk by fishermen, in one of the cozy inns. You can finish your day overlooking the enchanting landscapes of the Baltic Sea, perhaps even with a fire crackling in the background – a wonderful atmosphere and fitting end.

    This leisurely walk takes you over wide fields of rapeseed to Schleienge Rabelsund. In the thatched houses on the Schleiufer there was a cozy inn until the 1960s, but now they are holiday homes. The tranquility and beauty of the place has not changed as a result: At Rabelsund you sit on a bench in the shade of a gnarled tree and look out over the water.
