All those looking for variety are in the right place at the beaches of Fehmarn. The Baltic Sea island offers 20 beaches on a total of 78 kilometres (48 miles) with various beach landscapes, offering something for everyone. While lovers of sand beaches will feel more comfortable in the south, there are steep cliffs in the east of the island and the north offers many dunes and lakes.

Children-friendly beaches

The Burgtiefe sand beach in the south of Fehmarn is great fun for the little ones. In addition to the rather shallow water, there are a variety of activities such as the Badewelt Fehmare, the karting track in Burgstaaken or the Viwa Watersports water park. Also in the north at Grüner Brink there are many activities and services like beach chair rental and a kiosk. Both beaches are also monitored during the high season from May to September by the DLRG (German Life-Saving Association).

Bathing fun for everyone

Fehmarn is a wonderful holiday destination for people with different interests and possibilities. Wallnau beach, for example, offers a nudist area, while bathers can take their canine pets with them to the dog beaches in Bojendorf and Meeschendorf. Beach chairs can be rented from the beach chair rental companies in the south, at Grüner Brink and in Bojendorf. There are also two beach wheelchairs available, which can be borrowed from the DLRG headquarters on the south beach.

Numerous leisure activities in and around the water are to be found on Fehmarn. There are five cycle paths to explore the various corners of the island. Charging stations for e-bikes are also available. Adventure and mini golf, karting, climbing and soccer golf are great fun for children. The NABU bird reserve Wallnau and Grüner Brink are perfect for a walk in nature.

Kitesurfing, windsurfing, sailing, SUP and diving are some of the many ways to explore the Baltic Sea. The island also has a lot to offer culturally: Museums such as the Maritime Rescue Museum and the Fehmarn Museum invite you to discover the island in exciting exhibitions. In the Burg-Film-Theater you can enjoy the latest films in a classic 70s ambience.
