View of Plön Lake

Plön is in the heart of the Holstein Switzerland region, which gets its name from the rolling countryside. The climatic spa is like an island, surrounded by lakes. Plön Youth Hostel offers you a magnificent view across the large outdoor area and the "Great Plön Lake". In the summer, you can splash around in the swimming area and play football, basketball or volleyball outside. You can rent canoes or attend a sailing course in the nearby sailing school. If you'd like to take things a bit easier, then explore the beautiful old town, or go on a boat trip around the lakes and enjoy the unique landscape.
