STORMARNWhere Schleswig-Holstein kisses Hamburg. Here, nature has created a region with a lot of charm. This landscape created by glaciers of melting waters of the ice age has its own appeal. Lakes, forests and framed fields have given this region its name "Stormarner Schweiz" (Stormarn Switzerland). Stormarn is more than just a stop-over for tourists who want to travel to the Baltic Sea. Stromarn is Hamburg's attractive front garden. It is an insider's tip! Castles, lakes, mills, fields, forests, natural resorts and the rural character of the villages mark this region's beauty. Großensee - the biggest lake of this three-lakes-plateau is right in the centre of this charming region.
