Schleswig-Holstein, lying between the North Sea and the Baltic, constitutes a link between the European Union, Scandinavia and the other states surrounding the Baltic Sea. International economic, environmental, scientific and cultural cooperation projects turn this geographical location into a real opportunity.

Schleswig-Holstein has long moved away from its former role as a purely agricultural area. Technical innovation in particular is high on the agenda for universities and colleges, as well as for small and medium-sized businesses.

Kiel Week” marks the climax of the international sailing calendar in Kiel, the capital of Schleswig-Holstein. Other hallmarks of the region include the North Sea-Baltic Canal, the world’s most intensively used inland waterway, and the beautiful Hanseatic city of Lübeck, accorded the accolade of “World Cultural Heritage Site” by UNESCO. In summer this federal state between the seas focuses first and foremost on its many visitors.

The North Sea and Baltic coastlines, extending for hundreds of kilometres, together with around 140 lakes, make Schleswig-Holstein a real paradise for holiday makers.
