WELCOME TO THE NORTH SEA In the North Sea resort of Otterndorf, the River Elbe flows into the sea, making this a place you just can't help but fall in love with. The town's centre boasts stunning half-timbered houses, and everything revolves around the water here. You can swim, paddle and kitesurf in many lakes, and just a few kilometres further, you'll find a grassy North Sea beach that's not overcrowded. Don't miss a guided mudflat hike, where you can enjoy walking on the gentle seabed with bare feet - it's said that mudpacks are great for the skin!
IDEAL FOR FAMILIES The Otterndorf Youth Hostel provides excellent facilities for families with small children. The hostel's grounds offer plenty of space for running around, and the play and fun barn is perfect for bad weather days.
