Bike Touring Highlight
Kollmar is located between Glückstadt and Elmshorn on the Elbe in the nature reserve Kollmarer Marsch. It is assumed that the municipality was already settled around 100 to 200 AD. In 1716 the Groß and Klein Kollmar estates were established. In 1862 they passed to local farming families after changeful noble ownership. In 1974, through the merger of the previously independent municipality of Klein- and Groß Kollmar, the current municipality of Kollmar was created.The landscape and the location on the Elbe make Kollmar a popular excursion destination. Whether in bright sunshine or stormy weather, a hike on the Elbe dike is always a special experience. On the one hand the wide marshland with the steeple of the village church presents itself as the highest point, on the other hand the Elbe offers an interesting view of the busy shipping traffic between Hamburg and the North Sea.The streets and paths in and around the village are ideal for cycling tours. The Elbe beach invites you to swim and sunbathe, the little ones can have fun in the adjacent playground. The campsite at the foot of the dyke is popular with cycle tourists and holidaymakers. Horse lovers will get their money's worth in several riding stables in Kollmar. A special highlight is the rose garden on the Elbe, which houses more than 550 varieties of roses.kollmar-elbe.de/verzeichnis/visitenkarte.php?mandat=162543

First of all, thank you very much for all of you that think our community is so great and that you ensure that even more day-trippers populate our streets and meeting points (especially to JR56, who has to copy the entire story into here).
Just for information: We are not a tourist area and we do not want to become one. We already have a traffic problem with day tourists and motorbikes and we don't want any further advertising for it. We are in the LSG and would like to keep this with our rural style!
Please also note: We do not have a beach (only sandy beach), bathing is at your own risk, children in particular are at risk (swimming accidents with drowning have increased significantly / we only had them again in 2021) and everyone who thinks that the water is low Having to stack with the eddies in the water. Just leave it!
Furthermore, dog beaches and bathing are not forbidden in Bielenberg. In SH, dogs must always be kept on a leash and dog beaches must be identified. The ferry house is a tragedy and the three locations of the stalls is way too much (only attracts more tourism). Likewise, the planned port modernization of the community is unnecessary and only attracts more guests. We don't have that many fish stalls. Basically there is fish in every takeaway with us. The harbors are also not parking spaces for mobile homes. This is also regulated in the state ordinance SH. Please go to the campsite, thank you!
Anyone who would like to complain about this entry or would like to receive more background information on our problem is welcome to do so with us (email@example.com) or directly with our mayor (JR56 will certainly have already determined that).

In Kollmar, guests can sunbathe on the sandy beach at the harbor, enjoy the good weather and enjoy life. A pirate playground also rounds off the offer. The location is also ideal for watching the ships on the Elbe!The best thing in Kollmar on the beach: during the day you can always refresh yourself with cool drinks and fortify yourself with fresh fish rolls and Belgian fries from the beach flea, because the trendy gastronomy is a tip for visitors!Source: holstein-tourismus.de/de/unsere-region/detailansicht/detail/strand-kollmar-hafen.html
