Canals and channels in Friedrichstadt

Friedrichstadt was founded by the Dutch. And this fact is still reflected in the townscape: the landscaped canals criss-cross the city and convey the flair of Amsterdam. Gabled houses line the street. And it's all just a stone's throw away from the North Sea. The modern hostel is situated on the edge of the beautiful town. Behind the hostel lies the Treenebad, an idyllic natural open-air swimming pool. One special highlight of Friedrichstadt are the canoeing tours through the beautiful river scenery and boat trips through the Dutch-style canals.

"Mini-Amsterdam" in Friedrichstadt

You can best explore Friedrichstadt on a city tour or, from the water, on a canal boat. The old gabled town houses, many churches and other buildings illustrate the rich history of the town and the craftsmanship of bygone years. Friedrichstadt has plenty of holiday fun: cycling, fishing, horse riding - and all just a stone's throw away (12 miles) from the North Sea. One tip for guests are the canoe trips which allow you to enjoy the scenery and animals from the water while leisurely paddling by.
