Destination guide

A relaxing little town on the Bay of Lubeck

Situated on Germany's northeast coast and along the Baltic Sea, Kellenhusen is a charming and sleepy town nestled on the sea's Bay of Lubeck. The town itself, along with its waterfront, are perfect for a relaxing getaway, well away from the hustle and bustle of the some of the country's larger cities. Take a stroll along the beach, or ride your bikes through town, and enjoy the the slow-paced life. Book yourself a Kellenhusen vacation rental right on the sea, and explore a side of Germany that doesn't always make the guidebooks.

Things to do

Surrounded by local history and natural beauty

Though there aren't any museums in Kellenhusen, there are a few options just outside of town. Visit the Dorfmuseum in Grube for a look at the folk history of the local area, or travel to nearby Gromitz for the Haus der Natur natural history museum. If you're traveling with the kids, don't miss the Zoo Arche Noah, the Gromitzer Welle water park, or Karls Adventure Park for a fun-filled day. If all else fails, enjoy more time on the Kellenhusen promenade, and take in the natural work of art from the Aussichtsplatform lookout point.


From coastal paths down low to climbing routes up high

Whether you're sunning yourself on the sandy beaches by the sea or riding your bike along the coastal paths around the Yachthafen Burgtiefe marina, you'll find that most people spend their time outdoors in Kellenhusen. Your more adventurous travel buddies can visit the Lensterstrand rock climbing park if they want to see Germany from new heights, or you can all head out to the lookout point at the historic Leuchtturm Dahmeshoeved lighthouse. Pick a cozy Kellenhusen vacation rental with waterfront views, and feel like a local from the moment you step in the door.


Laze away your summer days by the Baltic Sea

Kellenhusen is best enjoyed in warm weather, when the Baltic Sea and its waterfront can truly be enjoyed. Plan to visit from May through September to take advantage of the great German outdoors, erring more toward the shoulder seasons if you're looking for a deal. The summer is peak season in the area, so expect slightly higher prices than if you visit from the late fall through early spring. Winters can be harsh in and around Kellenhusen, but visiting when the town is quiet also gives you an authentic peek at local life.

A tiny town perched on a less tiny peninsula

The town of Kellenhusen is in Germany's Ostholstein district, located on a peninsula that juts out into the Baltic Sea and the Bay of Lubeck. Because so much of Kellenhusen revolves around the sea, look for marine life and seabirds during your visit, particularly if you decide to snorkel or scuba dive. Cycling paths will lead you around the marinas and into the nearby forested areas, or you can laze away your days on the sandy shores.
