Approximately 7 Hours
Dive into the scenic countryside of Schleswig-Holstein, known as 'the Switzerland of North Germany' due to the gently rolling hills that shape the landscape.
You will travel through quaint rural areas and stop in Ploen to see an old castle majestically nestled on a hill between two lakes.
Step aboard a boat for a ride across five different lakes to Malente. The lakes are very popular because of their clear water and the natural habitat along their shorelines. The surrounding forests create a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere.
In Malente, leave the boat and travel to a local lunch venue. A typical German dish is served for lunch -- an authentic taste of the Kiel region.
Your last stop is at the small town of Eutin -- the City of Roses. Explore the gardens of a small castle and stroll through the narrow streets to a local marketplace with your guide. After the orientation, you'll have an hour of free time in the village.
The roses of Eutin garden usually flourish in June or July; no guarantee can be made that you will see the roses in full blossom. Wear comfortable shoes.
