With 2,200 hours of sun every year, endless natural beaches along 78 kilometres of coastline, picturesque lakes and rugged cliffs, Fehmarn is a charming holiday destination.

It's hard to imagine a more relaxing setting than this large island in the Baltic Sea. Spanning some 185 square kilometres, this is one of Germany's sunniest regions, which has a mild, stimulating climate. If you're looking for pure relaxation, you can indulge in the spa treatments at the FehMare pool complex or head to the sands of the vast and gently sloping beaches that promise fun for all the family. And if sports holidays are more your thing, you won't be disappointed either. You can go horse riding, play golf, sail, dive or, at the right time of year, enter the annual Fehmarn Marathon. Head off on a hike to discover fields, meadows, the coastline and more. For example, several hundred species of birds flock to the Wallnau Waterbird Reserve, widely regarded to be one of north Germany's most precious ecological environments.
