There are special hotels, resorts and holiday homes between Lübeck and Flensburg. We tested the houses on the Baltic Sea.
At the Schlei: Luxurious lodges
Houses with thatched roofs and flowered cottage gardens, streets lined with big old trees … Anyone who comes to the Schlei (a fjord of the Baltic Sea ), looking for the idyll, wants to drive over the single-track iron bridge at Lindaunis and wait until time stands still. For the “Marina Hülsen” in Kosel, the Heinrichs family turned a campsite into a modern, Nordic-style settlement with comfortable holiday homes. With lots of wood, whirlpool, sauna, stove and bread delivery service.
15 five-star holiday homes and four skipper lodges from 490 Euro / week for up to four people (Hülsen 6, Tel. 01 70/774 72 23, www.marina-huelsen.de )
