Langballig

Natural and cultural idyll by the outer Flensburg Fjord

The Baltic coast by the outer Flensburg Fjord compliments the typical tourist hotspots of the region. Discover the imposing coastal cliffs and unspoilt ravines on the area’s hiking trails. Easy-going cycling trails pass through a winding landscape and through some of the region’s quaint villages like Munkbrarup, Bönstrup and Dollerup. In the small marina and fishing port of Langballigau you can even get fresh fish direct from the cutter.

You can also enjoy beach life here without the burdens of tourist taxes and large crowds. The beach in Langballigau awaits with canopied beach chairs, a playground and fitness equipment as well as restaurants and plenty of shopping opportunities. Somewhat hidden away and virtually unchanged from the time when our grandparents where young, the natural beach in Bockholmwik is even more idyllic. You will always be able to enjoy the magnificent panoramic view across the firth and into Denmark.

Starting out from the beaches, this paradise by the outer fjord will satisfy your inner explorer whether you’re on a long hike or a short ramble. Take a stroll on the Fördesteig, across flat meadows and along small moors, up and down the forested coastal cliffs or simply along the Langballigau promenade towards Westerholz. One of the most impressive river valleys on the Schleswig-Holstein Baltic coast, the Langballigau valley is a must for any visit and can be walked in its entirety from Westerholz to Unewatt.

The cultural highlight of the region can be found in picturesque Unewatt: The Angeln countryside museum. Nested in an idyllic village setting, the butter mill, smoke house, windmill and other “museum islands” bring rural living in times of yore to life.
