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.
