Baltic Coast

Yacht charter Baltic Sea: Hidden Baltic gems – by Hans Oberländer

Pølser instead of palm trees, down-to-earth “hygge” rather than dazzling highlife: this is precisely what makes the Danish South Sea such a popular sailing region. On the way there, why not take a relaxing pleasure trip along Germany’s west Baltic coastline?

Yacht charter Baltic Sea: Hidden Baltic gems – by Hans Oberländer

Itineraries

DAY 1: COASTAL CHARM

Sailing on the Schlei Estuary: Green forests and miles of fields, charming little villages with colorful gardens near the shore. Then in Kappeln itself there’s a quaint quay and the unique 15th century herring weir. What more could one possibly ask for during a Baltic Yacht Charter? You’d like some sea? Just a little further, past the fishing village of Maasholm and the green and white lighthouse at Schleimünde, the Baltic Sea awaits you.

DAY 2: WHITE SPLENDOR

Those upping anchor in Glücksburg after a cruise on the Flensburg Fjord often have a rather grand destination in mind: the moated castle at Glücksburg. This impressive, bright white Renaissance ensemble was once the seat of government of ruling Danish kings and became known as the “cradle of the European royal houses” for its skillful marriage diplomacy.

DAY 3: BOUNDLESS & BOTTLED UP

Sailing, shopping, sightseeing – it’s all done in style in Flensburg, a must-see destination during a Baltic Yacht Charter. The modern marina is located right in the city centre, next to the museum harbour with its historic sailing boats. In the Old Town and on “Rote Strasse”, façades from the Classical, Renaissance and Baroque periods remain intact for our admiration. Meanwhile in picturesque merchant courtyards, visitors are drawn to cafés, restaurants, boutiques – and a rum manufactory. Once upon a time, Flensburg owed its considerable wealth to the high-percentage sugarcane distillate.

DAY 4: JOUST FOR FUN!

“Borg” is a sure sign that there’s a castle closeby: In Sønderborg it greets you as you enter the narrow strait known as the “Als Sund”. At its eastern wall is a replica of an historic jousting arena. Riders in medieval costumes can be seen in action during the months of July and August, with plenty of opportunity to stroke the horses afterwards.

DAY 5: RELAXED IN THE HERE & NOW

Dyvig has a reputation for being one of the most beautiful natural harbours to drop anchor in the whole of Denmark. Manoeuvring in is a zigzag-like experience, as you pass anchorages and it seems as though you’re traversing a meadow to reach your place of rest. This is a wonderful haven in which to unwind and spend time during a yacht charter on the Baltic Sea. And when your stomachs begin to growl, the fine “Dyvig Badehotel” right on the harbourfront offers equally fine dining.

DAY 6: COOL SOUTH SEA VIBES

Finally: the Danish South Sea! Surrounded by countless isles south of Funen, Avernakö is one of the larger islands, at eight kilometres in length. The beach in Revkrog, a sickle-shaped bay in the southeast, is deserted, and the water is crystal clear. Taking a dip is almost like being in the real South Seas – just slightly cooler.

DAY 7: ON TOUR WITH HELGE

Back in the Middle Ages, this port city was one of Scandinavia’s most important trading centers. Even today, sailing boats pack in side-by-side in summer. If you don’t want to give up your hard-fought place, you can board the traditional steamship Helge: it calls at Kristiansminde, Troense, Grönodde and Valdemars Slot in the eastern Svendborg Sound – all nice stops for a walk or a visit to the beach.

DAY 8: WHEN THE PONIES WENT WILD

Rudköbing is the largest of the six marinas on the island, and Ristinge Havn the smallest. Spodsbjerg Turistbadehavn is interesting for fishing enthusiasts – located right in the middle of rich fishing grounds. There’s nothing remotely hectic about this place, and finding a tranquil spot on the beach is easy anywhere on Langeland. One special attraction is a herd of around 60 Exmoor ponies that have been living wild here in a fenced-in area since 1964.

DAY 9: NATURAL BEAUTY

Marstal, the most important port on Aerö, used to accommodate some 300 freighters a century ago, and the maritime museum tells of the splendor of those bygone days. Nowadays, container ships and docks set the scene as one passes in and out. Caution is advised: Outside the channel it quickly flattens off. Whether by bike or by free public bus: It’s worth exploring the island’s biggest attractions: beaches, hills and the 30 m high chalk coast near Voderup.

DAY 10: THE HOME OF HYGGE

Cobblestones, colorful half-timbered houses, and hollyhocks galore: Ærøskøbing, a 750-year-old port town, is a picture-postcard kind of place at every turn – and officially recognized as part of Europe’s cultural heritage since 2002. The narrow streets can get crowded, particularly during the summer months. Fortunately though, a quiet haven of peace awaits in the commercial port: your yacht, your boat. Cast away, let’s sail on!
