We took a trip to Niendorf at the Baltic Sea. Niendorf is located directly at the coast. And you can reach it from Hamburg in about an hour by bus or train. There is a nice beach and a quaint little harbor where you can buy fresh fish. If you follow the coastline to the west you can wander to the well known Timmendorfer Strand. On the eastern side you can reach Travemünde by hiking on a marvelous path up on the cliffs.
The small harbor is an unique place where fishermen offer fresh fish daily. At the place called Klüvers you can get it fried or rooked and drink an excellent hand crafted beer. Baked cod fish with potato-salad or Matjes with `Bratkartoffeln´ and a cool beer. Afterwards you can examine the art of the local artists and study the activities in the harbor area. There you go!
You have a great selection of craft beer – from lager, Weizen-Beer, Pils to Red or Dark. All very delicious and also available as a fresh non pasteurized filling. Klüvers Website –>
A day trip to Travemünde by bike is great because you can explore the rough nature of the cliffs.
Explore small coves and enjoy an overwhelming view over the Baltic Sea. In Travemünde you can explore big sailing chips, the historic city and the fishing port.
In the direct hinterlands of Niendorf is the `Hemmelsdorfer See´, a huge lake located in a large area natural reserve. Lots of birds and Galloways on the cattle herding.
