Heiligenhafen

A WOW whatever the weather

Heiligenhafen is the perfect spot for your Baltic Sea holiday—365 days a year. In the middle of all this perfection is the wonderful Strand Resort—just a short distance from all the highlights of the "Baltic Sea sundeck".

Your dream holiday accommodation is located in the 5-star Marina Heiligenhafen—one of the Baltic Coast’s prettiest yachting harbours. As our guest, you will be closer than anyone to the water sport professionals: the Marina Heiligenhafen is home to the largest fleet of charter sailing ships anywhere on the German Baltic Coast, and two sailing schools offer courses in sailing, surfing and kite-surfing.

The direct route via the new Marina Promenade gives you a 5-minute walk to the beach. Just like in a picture book, the 4 km of fine sandy beach lies at your feet—with the unmistakable pier in the centre. This new experience pier is 435 metres long, and lives up to its name: walk, dream, gaze, people-watch, stroll, rest, play—there are endless things to do on this pier over the Baltic. Little pirates can win at the gaming stations, the running wheel, or the climbing walls. Grown-ups can relax in the glassed-in ocean lounge with a sunbathing deck, 9 metres above the Baltic.

Is the sea air making you hungry? You can grab delicious fresh fish rolls in the nearby living fishing harbour—with its real fishing cutters that go out and proudly bring their catch into harbour. This is also where you can start your high-seas fishing trips on the Baltic, or take a day-trip boat towards Fehmarn. And just between us: the harbour and the whole city likes to party, especially during the legendary harbour festival in July.

Keep on walking...a few more steps and now you’re already in the Old Town of Heiligenhafen: beautiful and idyllic, with its well-preserved medieval buildings. Look at the view from the tower of the city church, over 750 years old, or experience the moving tale of the sailors and harbour history of the city in the Heimatmuseum. Afterwards, many small shops will tempt you into a maritime shopping tour, and the cafés and restaurants will spoil you with fresh regional specialities.

Speaking of spoiling you:
In the Aktiv-Hus Spa you will experience unforgettable feel-good relaxation time. Sauna, peelings, massages, and bathing in a cosy ambience will show results: this is pure holidaying, and much too good to save for bad weather.

Graswarder Heiligenhafen

And while you are busy winding down in the spa, the children can wind up properly for once: the Treasure Island [Schatzinsel] in the Aktiv-Hus is Heiligenhafen’s indoor leisure attraction for younger guests—with trampolines, climbing castle, lighthouse, ball-cannons, air-hockey ... And in the sport arena you’ll find beach volleyball or beach soccer, a climbing wall, archery, and many other options to really work off your energy.

But we can also do something very different. Heiligenhafen has something very unique to offer: the 230 ha conservation area of Graswarder, located immediately beside the Strand Resort. Graswarder offers space and protection for many birds and rare plants. With an expert nature guide, you can also visit the seabird colony. You’ve never seen such impressive nature!

A holiday in Heiligenhafen is a perfect mix of activities, rest, nature, spa relaxation, water sports, and events. A "WOW" holiday at any time of year.
