5 tips for your Scharbeutz holiday

If you are looking for a kilometre-long and child-friendly fine sandy beach – and prefer to spend your holiday in Germany – you should make a note of Scharbeutz in the Bay of Lübeck for your next holiday.

Located right next to the equally popular Timmendorfer Strand and the Pönitz Lake District, there is something for every holiday taste: Gumda’s play beach inspires young holidaymakers between 3 and 12 years of age.

On the action and fun beach, you have the opportunity to work off the delicious holiday food with a game of beach soccer or beach volleyball. But dog owners and friends of nudism are also thought of with their own beach sections.

For culture enthusiasts, a trip to the city of Lübeck , which is less than 30 minutes away by car, is a good idea. With just under 220,000 inhabitants, the marzipan city of Lübeck is the second largest city in Schleswig Holstein after Kiel. Did you know that marzipan was originally made as a remedy? Learn more about the history of the popular sweet in the Niederegger Marzipan Salon.

A visit to St. Mary’s Church, built from 1250 to 1350, is definitely worth seeing, which is the highest brick vault in the world with a height of 38.5 meters and the two 120-meter-high towers.
