Ports

Eckernforde is a cahrming little town on the German coast of the Baltic Sea and a popular tourist destination. Its history dates back to the 12th century. With it sandy beach and beautiful forest Eckernforde is a perfect place to enjoy nature and sports. Spend an adventurous day in the Natur-Hochseilgarten park with its ziplines, hanging bridges and climbing obstacles. Afterwards pay a visit to the Bonbonkocherei Hermann Hinrichs factory and make your own sweet treats!

Travemünde, on the shores of the Trave river near the Baltic Sea, is an important ferry port and sea resort. Its lighthouse is the oldest in Germany, and its port organises the yearly Travemünder Woche sailing contests and the Sand World sand sculpting festival. Take a walk around this relaxed town, have a nice meal, and spend some time on the beach if it’s a nice day. If you’re up for a hike, you’ll find the Palinger Heide close by. The nearby town of Lübeck is also well worth a visit.
