Kappeln on the Baltic Sea fjord of Schlei

Ever considered 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 near by. The nearest beach where you can swim is only 6 km away. Whether windsurfing, sailing or canoeing - Kappeln has a lot to offer in order to spend one’s time off. Other sightseeing activities involve: the church, Nikolaikirche, at the market square, downtown, the mansions of the 18th and 19th century, as well as the largest Dutch Mill in Schleswig-Holstein. All this is worth a visit. Another must see while here, is the „Heringszaun“ („herring fence“), a well known fishing method from the past time.
