Welcome to Niendorf on the German Baltic Sea coast

Niendorf on the Baltic Sea is a district of the municipality of Timmendorfer Strand in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. The Baltic Sea resort is best known for its idyllic fishing harbour and marina, which was artificially created in the Aalbeck estuary in 1920. To this day, Niendorf has retained its original character and, compared to neighbouring Timmendorfer Strand, presents itself as a rather quiet and tranquil Baltic seaside resort.

The leisure facilities in Niendorf on the Bay of Lübeck and the surrounding region offer a variety of activities for young and old all year round. A holiday in Niendorf on the Baltic Sea is always worth a visit.

Marina and fishing harbour in Niendorf

Fishing is still of central importance in Niendorf today. Every day, cutters bring their catch into the harbour, where it is sold at the surrounding stalls. There are also berths for excursion boats and pleasure craft in the harbour. The excursion boats can be used for trips to the Bay of Lübeck or to Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

There are restaurants and various seating areas around the idyllic harbour from which you can watch the goings-on on and around the water.
