    The port of Kappeln invites you to linger. Either you look at the ships as they pass the bridge, admire the herring catch or sit down in a nice café. The city offers shopping and a beautiful pedestrian passage.

    Not only a paddle steamer, many beautiful old sailing boats are often found in the harbor, which you can look at a fish sandwich in the harbor.

    A unique landscape around Kappeln: not only the lovely loop, but also the maritime Baltic Sea with views to the horizon. In addition the cozy small town Kappeln with many cafes and restaurants as well as first-class vacation homes directly at the Schleiufer beside the bascule bridge. What more do you need?

    Kappeln owns the last herring fence in Germany. If the herring days are celebrated here in May, you can estimate how many herring swam through the fence into the net. Unfortunately, I do not know what you can win, but it is a lot of fun.

    Kappeln with its maritime flair has the only herring fence in Europe - it is next to the Dutch mill "Amanda" a landmark of the city. At the harbor you can linger over a coffee or stroll for a short shopping trip through the many small shops and boutiques in the city center. In high season many shops are also open on Sundays.

    The marina is the meeting point of many sailors and gives the city a wonderful, idyllic flair. The arriving in Kappeln sailors "stumble" almost out of the boat in one of the small cafes and restaurants directly at the loan port. Your boats are practically in the middle of the city. The museum harbor with over 30 old traditional sailing ships is undoubtedly one of the attractions of Kappeln. The nostalgic harbor always looks forward to inquisitive visitors.

    Directly at the harbor is also the small museum station with the steam locomotive. From here you can directly go on tours in the beautiful landscape of the region fishing. Many events such as the Kappelner Heringstage attract locals and guests to the beautiful city on the Schlei throughout the year.

    Kappeln (Danish Kappel) is a town in the countryside fishing in the district of Schleswig-Flensburgin Schleswig-Holstein (Germany). The city is located on the Schlei and borders since the incorporation of the village Olpenitz also to the Baltic Sea. Kappeln has always been a local trading center and fishing village. Until June 2006, it was garrison town due to the stationing of naval units in the base Olpenitz. In addition to a small port, Kappeln has several marinas and a number of companies that serve the supply and maintenance of recreational craft. For eastern fishing and northern Schwansen Kappeln has central location function.
