Summer, sun, weekend – it’s time for a trip into the wide landscape of Schleswig-Holstein. As it fun is best when shared, why not invite your friends along for an active weekend break. In the „real north", as the Schleswig-Holsteiners call their homeland, you can discover a lot – either on foot or by bike. In this Collection, we have put together eight varied tours in the north, just waiting for you and your friends to discover. Let yourself be enchanted by how green, diverse and utterly beautiful is the northernmost state in Germany.

Experience typical North Sea idyll in Eiderstedt, enjoy the fine Baltic Sea beach in the Bay of Lübeck, get to know the green side of Flensburg and forget the stress of everyday life on a hike through the Katinger Watt. You are guaranteed to find variety here – whether rough North Sea, hilly inland scenery or the calm Baltic Sea, every region has its own and very special charm. Find out where you like it best.

Thanks to the well-developed network of DB Regio Schleswig-Holstein you can reach all routes comfortably and stress-free by train. For example, with the small group ticket, you can travel all day on a specific route by bus and train. If you want to make your start and finish more flexible, then the Schleswig-Holstein ticket will be a better fit. Unlike the small group ticket you can’t use this on the bus. For both tickets, however, the more friends you have, the cheaper it will be. Up to five people can share a ticket.

The next weekend is coming, so what are you waiting for? Call friends, buy a ticket and head off on an action-packed summer weekend. The beaches, forests and lakes at Waterkant await.

    Green meadows, shady forests and the North Sea right in front of your nose: The former wadden and salt marshes Katinger Watt at the river mouth of the Eider was diked about 50 years ago for flood protection reasons.
