Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany your home away from home

The Federal state of Schleswig-Holstein is in the far north of Germany and is known as the “Land between two seas”. The area runs from the Danish border to the south of Lübeck in a series of bays, cliffs and inland fjords. A string of seaside resorts runs south along the Baltic coast from Glücksburg, the cradle of European royalty with its moated castle, down to Travemünde in the south-east. Holstein's Switzerland, a picturesque nature reserve, is located between Kiel Bay and Lübeck Bay offering a host of lovely self-catering cottages and rentals. The capital of the region is Kiel, with its romantic courtyards, pretty market squares and distinctly Nordic port.
