Where to stay in Kappeln

About Kappeln

Kappeln is a charm-soaked fishing village set at the mouth of the Schlei, a narrow Baltic Sea inlet. Stroll around the historic town centre and admire colourful fishing boats bobbing in the harbour. Paddle steamer cruises and cycling tours immerse you in the natural beauty of Northern Germany.

Things to do

Kappeln is built around Marktplatz, a picturesque square lined with historic buildings. St. Nicolai Church towers over the square and features a beautiful Baroque façade, while the elaborate interior features sparkling chandeliers and a gleaming pipe organ. Al fresco cafes overlook Marktplatz and are perfect for enjoying lunch in the sunshine.

The town is dotted with historic landmarks that recall its ancient past. Wander around the old Jewish cemetery and admire the postcard-perfect Dutch windmill that’s been reimagined as a visitor information centre. Museumschafen charts the fascinating history and heritage of Kappeln and nearby Schleimuseum features exhibits on the Baltic Sea.

Kappeln fishermen have been hauling in herring for centuries. Most restaurants serve their own versions of the famous Baltic Sea fish. Roter Heringssalat, a German dish made with diced herring, beets, apples, pickles, onion and sour cream, is a local specialty.

Renting a bike is a great way to explore Kappeln and enjoy the scenery. Trails skirt the Schlei shoreline and take you past picturesque towns and villages that line the inlet. The inland routes take you through scenic farmland and paddle steamer cruises are another great way to enjoy the Schlei. The brightly painted boats cruise up and down the inlet, stopping at attractions such as the historic Lighthouse of Schleimünde.

Getting around

Kappeln is pedestrian-friendly and easy to get around on foot. The town is a 30-minute drive from Schleswig and two hours from Schleswig. Boat tours are a scenic way to travel between Kappeln and Schleswig.
