Suggestions, hotel information for Schleswig-Holstein

We are planning a trip next summer to northern Germany. We have traveled numerous times in other sections of the country but do have not experience along the North Sea and/or Baltic. We are particularly interested in information about Nordfriesisches, Sankt Peter-Ording, and/or Nordstrand. Are there some towns not be be missed? Any interesting hotel suggestions?

Hi,

I can't really suggest any accomodations since the only time I stayed in a place that far north was at the HI hostel in Kiel. Towns that are worthy of your time as a day trip are Eutin/Holstein, all the more so if you're into classical music. The birthhouse/museum of Carl Maria von Weber, a contemporary of Beethoven, is located in Eutin.

I found Eutin interesting but didn't have time to get to the historic Schloss, where a WW I memorial is located. If you're deeply into history, go to Laboe, take the ferry from Kiel (which I saw in 2011), not far from the train station to get there. Even thought Kiel was plastered over and over in the war, the small towns in Schleswig-Holstein survived undamaged.

If you're going by train, the ICE train stop in Hamburg Hbf. From there you take the regional trains.
