Baltic resort Heikendorf

Only a ferry ride away from the city of Kiel, on the sunny side of the fjord, the Baltic seaside resort Heikendorf awaits you. The most beautiful spots are strung along the shoreline like pearls on a string: the sun terrace on the beach, the pier at the fishing port or the submarine memorial on a headland at the narrowest point of the fjord. Here, the large ferries, cruisers and traditional sailing ships pass before your eyes: moments of happiness that you will not forget and pure relaxation.

Overnight Stay at the Kiel fjord


Beautiful beach life

Behind a headland lies Heikendorf's main beach, sheltered in a bay. Bathers in the water, on their towels or in a beach chair are amazed when a cruise ship suddenly appears behind the Labo submarine memorial and passes within reach.
