Setting sail, meeting wild animals of the Serengeti or riding the Ferris wheel on Hamburger Dom, a large fair, while licking candy-floss: a family holiday in the Hamburg Metropolitan Region is exciting and colorful. With its beaches, cities like Hamburg, Lübeck or Schwerin and varied nature, Germany's north offers countless opportunities to discover the world together. And because there is no other region in Germany with such a high density of amusement parks as the Lüneburg Heath, there is no shortage of fun and action. But what should you choose?
One of the main reasons for visiting the Lüneburg Heath’s unique landscape is the peaceful, traffic-free nature conservation area with the largest area of continuous heathland in central Europe. But for those seeking a little more action, this area has probably the greatest concentration of theme parks in the whole of the country! These include Ralf Schumacher’s cutting-edge karting complex in Bispingen – one of its kind in Germany.
The Segeberg district, with its wide-open fields and green meadows lies in the eastern part of Schleswig-Holstein. The foothills of Holstein Switzerland mean that the landscape is hilly with lots of lakes for swimming and relaxation. Situated centrally between Hamburg, Neumünster and Lübeck, the Segeberg district also offers lots of destinations for day trips to lakeside villages or pretty little towns.
