Kappeln on the Baltic Sea fjord of Schlei

What could be more glorious than a bike ride along the water? Cyclists staying in Kappeln can choose from various cycle routes along the Schlei. And if you don't have your own bike, you can borrow one in Kappeln. The nearest sandy beach where you can swim is only 6 km away. Whether windsurfing, sailing or canoeing - the area around Kappeln offers great leisure activities. Nikolaikirche church at the town all market square, the mansions of the 18th and 19th century and, above all, the largest Dutch mill in Schleswig-Holstein are worth a visit. One special feature is the "Heringszaun" ("herring fence"), a widespread fishing method from days gone by that you can examine on site.
