A classic is a holiday with children on the Baltic Sea or the North Sea – you don’t have to travel too long and still don’t have to do without fine beaches, water and refreshing air. But elsewhere you can find wonderful places for a children’s vacation. A not too extreme climate and as little time difference as possible are among the criteria. Wherever you travel with your family: It is important that your apartment is child-friendly.
Family vacation by the sea
From Glücksburg to Ahlbeck – the Baltic Sea promises family fun and pure relaxation with its white sandy beaches. You will find family-friendly offers everywhere – regardless of whether you stay on the mainland or visit one of the Baltic islands.
