The capital of the region is Kiel, with its romantic courtyards, pretty market squares and distinctly Nordic port.

The house was everything a person would want for a weekend-house in a very nice city near the north see. It had all the appliances for a normal living ( from coffeemaker to washmachine). The only thing that was missing was that it had no internet. The hosts we didn't get to see them more then the 10 minutes that were necessary for describing the place and handing over the keys, but they seem very lovely.
