Scharbeutz shines like a diamond

Overlooking the Bay of Lubeck, some 13 miles north of the city, Scharbeutz is a popular beach resort on Germany's Baltic Coast. Get your German adventure off to a great start by booking a Scharbeutz vacation rental close to the beach. The biggest draw is Scharbeutz' miles of wide, blonde sandy beaches, which attract the bucket and spade crowd. But there's plenty of other attractions too. Nearby is the SEA LIFE center at Timmendorfer Strand, and Hanse-Park, the region's popular amusement park, while the scenic Niendorf Bird Park will sate all nature lovers.

No buts, it has to be Scharbeutz

Life in Scharbeutz pretty much revolves around the beach. And it's easy to see why. It has miles and miles of soft, pale sands, perfect for sunbathing or sandcastle making. Meanwhile, water sports fans flock to brave the cool waters of the Baltic Sea, which is a hotspot (or cold spot) for swimming, sailing, and windsurfing fanatics. Book a Scharbeutz vacation rental in the heart of the small town, and you'll be within a few minutes' drive of many of the region's best family attractions, as well as the town's charming restaurants, bars, and bakeries.

From sharks to coasters, life's full of ups and downs in Scharbeutz

If you fancy a day away from the beach, a 15-minute drive south of your Scharbeutz vacation rental is the SEA LIFE Center Timmendorfer Strand. This popular aquarium is a great place for all the family. Come to nose-to-fin with a wide range of marine life, from sharks and piranhas, to sea turtles and otters. If that's a little too fishy for you, then take a 15-minute drive north of the beach resort to the region's premier amusement park. Hansa-Park has 125 rides and attractions, from gentle log flumes to hair-raising rollercoasters.

I like Scharbeutz and I cannot lie

Like any European vacation, dealing with the changeable weather is all in the packing. During the warm summer months, the Baltic Coast sees plenty of blue skies and hot, sunny days. Peak season is July and August, when temperatures regularly reach the mid-70s and above. The shoulder seasons of spring and fall are also popular times to visit, although rain can be a frequent visitor, so pack an umbrella. In winter, the resort battens down the hatches as the temperature drops towards freezing, although snow is rare.

Find birds of a feather in Scharbeutz' lakes

Perched on the Baltic Coast overlooking the Bay of Lubeck, Scharbeutz is a small beachfront town in the Ostholstein Region of Northern Germany. A few miles inland is a series of small lakes, including Groser Ponitzer Am See, which offers an easy hike around its periphery. You may even spot a duck or two. Just outside Timmendorfer Strand is a larger lake, Hemmeldorfer See, which is a popular fishing spot and home to a variety of birds, including coots, kingfishers, and osprey.
