The Hansa-Park in Sierksdorf is unique. Why? It's the only amusement park in Germany which is located directly at the coast – within the range of vision to the Baltic Sea.
Sierksdorf is located directly at the Lübeck Bay at the southern coast of the Eastern Holstein peninsula, between the famous tourist sites Scharbeutz and Neustadt in Holstein. It's a small village with not more than approx. 1,500 citizens.
The Hansa-Park is located at the northern outskirts of town. On a plain of 460,000 square meters there are 125 attractions which bring more than 1 million visitors each season. This means that the Hansa-Park is one of the Top Five amusement parks in Germany.
It was established in 1973 as "Legoland", later it was renamed to "Hansaland", and its current name "Hansa-Park" it received in 1987.
The park is - as any other big amusement park - characterized by different roller coasters which make for enough thrill of the visitors. But of course there are way more attractions than "just" roller coasters (even though, after all, the latters are the main attractions). There are attractions especially for toddlers as well as attractions for adults or larger kids, there are plenty of shows, such as the International Vaudeville Show, the Water Circus, the Hansa-Park Parade in the afternoon or the Multimedia and Special Effects Show.
Furthermore there are several theme-related areas, such as "Mexico", "Abenteuerland (Adventure Land)", "Bonanza City", "Water Fun", "Hanse in Europa (Hansa in Europe)" and way more.
But the main attractions are - of course - the roller coasters; and there are some really interesting:
• "Nessie" – a looping roller coaster made of steel which is 840 meters long and has a top speed of 90 km/h.
• "Rasender Roland (Rushing Roland)" – named after the railway on Rügen island. This roller coaster is using the "Nessie" looping twice. The max. speed is 50 km/h, the length is 552 meters.
• "Wilde Maus (Crazy Mine)" – a "wild mouse roller coaster" characterized by small cars that seat four people or fewer and show tight and narrow turns at modest speed.
• "Fluch von Novgorod (Curse of Novgorod) – the world's first mix of Launched Coaster and Euro Fighter, and Germany's steepest roller coaster resp. the world's steepest Dark Ride roller coaster. The height is 40 meters and the top speed is 100 km/h.
Additionally there are several water rides as well as many other rides for young and old.
For having a break there are many restaurants all over the park - so one can find anything at any time.
In the "Hansa-Park Resort am Meer" (Hansa-Park Resort by the sea) there are several vacation homes/vacation rentals in order to give the guests the opportunity to stay for more than just one day. And it is worth it for sure.
Escape Address: Am Fahrenkrog 1, 23730 Sierksdorf, Sierksdorf, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany
The small city Eutin is just 16 km away from Sierksdorf. It's called "Weimar of the North", as it has a wonderful historic city center and an amazing baroque castle with a beautiful landscape garden. Formerly this castle was the residence of the Lübeck prince-bishops. The city center is full of historic façades – one more beautiful than the other.
There are many cycle routes around. The area is flat, hence it is easy to ride here. The "Ostseeküstenradweg" (cycle route of the coast of the Baltic Sea) is running here (it goes from Lübeck via Fehmarn Island and Kiel to Flensburg - alltogether 430 km), so why not cycle a part of it? But there are plenty of bike paths around, so you'll find "yours" for sure!
