The district of Stormarn: Love for a place of residence

Stormarn stands for quality of life in all areas. Anyone who knows Stormarn understands why locals and newcomers love the region equally. Stormarn, together with the neighboring Hanseatic cities of Hamburg and Lübeck, is in close proximity to two urban metropolises of different sizes and in a natural setting characterized by meadows, forests, fields and lakes.

But also the idyllic villages with their historic houses in typical clinker construction, the historic mansions and the liveliness of towns such as Ahrensburg, Reinbek and Bad Oldesloe offer their charm. With its diversity and distinctive charm, the Stormarn region is undoubtedly one of the most attractive areas in Germany.

Leisure & tourism – there is a lot to discover

Stormarn’s leisure activities are just as diverse as its residents: sports stadiums for football and athletics, tennis courts, numerous golf courses, stud farms, shooting sports, motor sports, sailing (Elbe, Baltic Sea, lakes), aviation and trend sports are represented here and club life is very important.

Cultural interests are also not neglected in Stormarn: from the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, guest theater performances, own productions, numerous museums and galleries, city festivals, a lively music scene to world culture in the cities of Hamburg and Lübeck, you will find everything that makes the heart of culture enthusiasts beat faster.

For those who prefer things a little quieter and are looking for relaxation, we recommend a visit to one of the numerous outdoor pools, indoor pools and adventure pools or bathing lakes (e.g. Lütjensee, Grossensee, Reinfeld); not to forget the proximity to the North and Baltic Seas. A highlight is definitely the new wellness facility Vabali Spa in Glinde, which opened in 2022. Nature conservation and local recreation areas invite you to extensive bike tours or hikes – whether as a day trip or an exciting holiday trip. There are also enough restaurants and hotels for every taste and round off the offer for locals and tourists alike.
