Quality time

A trip to Holstein – pure family fun! Get up close to gray seals and harbour seals at the Friedrichskoog seal station, set off on a playful sluice tour to learn how the Kiel Canal sluice in Brunsbüttel works, or experience the forest with all your senses using the tree telephone and barefoot path in the Störkathener Heide heath – there is fun for the whole family in Holstein! Animal lovers also have plenty to do, like spot birds with binoculars at the Carl Zeiss Birdwatching Station or watch birds of prey show off their skills at Eekholt Wilderness Park.

Or experience the best of country life – at children’s birthday parties on the farm or a sleepover at a hay inn. Perhaps you’d prefer a lively canoe tour – lots of fun for young and old alike. There is also plenty of excitement in the winter, like a visit to the Brokdorf ice rink.
