The seaside resort of Eckernförde is situated at the end of the Eckernförde bay. It has more than 700 years of history and since 1830’s it is a health resort. At the beginning of the Prussian affiliation it began losing its importance in favor of the nearby city of Kiel.

An attractive city center invites you to spend some time there and visit the newly restored swimming baths. Up to the 1895, when the Kiel Canal was opened, the Eckernförde harbor played a great role first of all for the businessmen. Today the meaning of a fishing port becomes less and less important and the city more and more turns into a kind of a tourist harbor. The extensive modernization took place in 2007 and here was supported the same direction of development. Nowadays 15 traditional ships are in the harbor presenting a kind of a museum. Fish market, Old Town party, pirate's days and sprat party are only some of the annual events which determine the maritime atmosphere of the town.

However, Eckernförde is a starting point of various active sports in beautiful surroundings. Bicycle travelers and skaters, hikers and others are glad to examine an extensive network of tracks.
