Schleswig Holstein, or as it is known locally Der Rest den keiner will is one of the most beautiful parts of Germany. Its stunning coasts and rolling hills will impress you, just before the likable and talkative locals will endear you to the place even more. People who don't like this place are few and far between indeed
German. Most people understand English. The northern part of the region contains Danish and North Frisian minorities, thus making it possible to use those languages in addition to German in many situations. Low German is spoken in very rural areas, but German can be used as well mostly.
The state has an extensive public transportation service, provided by different train and bus companies.
Visit Ditmarschen and eat the fabulous seafood. Try Friedrichskoog for great fish restaurants.
Shrimp: in Büsum, you can buy small boiled shrimp by the kilo. Spend a happy communal time peeling them and eat them on black bread, with a fried egg over the top. An excellent Abend Brot (dinner) or snack!
