Along the German Baltic Sea coast

The Baltic Sea coast in Germany spans over 2,000 km long. It commences in the west with the Fjord coast, which is a popular sailing area.

Here, an inland cruise is also a viable option.The Schlei meanders inland to Schleswig and transports you back to Viking times with the renowed site of Haithabu.

On the German Baltic Sea coast, for example, the Fjord Coast sailing area is popular. Here the German Baltic Sea coast borders on the Danish Baltic Sea coast, so that a two-country trip along the mainland coast of Denmark or to the islands Langeland and Als is a good idea.

The Mecklenburg Bay is the largest German Baltic Sea bay and here are beautiful Hanseatic towns that invite you to visit. So you can make a trip to the Wismar Bay. The old town of Wismar is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The very well preserved Bothmer Castle from the Baroque period and its gardens are also worth a trip.
