Family and animal friendly home from 1928 between Lübeck and Hamburg

Welcome to Reinfeld in Holstein! Founded by greedy little monks in 1186, this is where the little creek Heilsau meets the river Trave. The monks created about 60 ponds to raise carp and other fish to eat on the days when meat was not allowed in the Middle Ages. Luckily, the nearby Hanseatic cities of Lübeck and Hamburg grew bigger at the same time. As they say: Carpe diem!

Our typical Northern-German brick built family home from 1928 is located in a quiet residential area close to Reinfeld's train station (800m). From here you can reach Lübeck in 10 minutes, the beaches and ferries of the Baltic Sea in 25 minutes and Hamburg in 40 minutes - all by train every 30 minutes or via highway A1 by car.
Berlin and Copenhagen are three hours away by car or train, so a day trip is possible but staying for at least one night is worthwhile.

We have a nice dog and kids proof garden with toys and space to play. There is a trampoline, a swing, a slide, a slackline and two horizontal bars with a climbing net. We also have an outdoor jacuzzi for the kids during the day and their parents after the little ones have gone to bed.

Over the last years we have spent a lot of time renovating our home, so most rooms have a new and modern interior and keep changing constantly. In 2023 the cellar and the garage are about to be modernized. Probably not so much of your interest…
We have green electricity as well as a modern heat pump for water and heating, so our house is quite environmentally friendly.

There are three bikes for adults and two bikes for children. We can also offer a canoe for the whole family. The river Trave, which runs down to the old city of Lubeck, is just five minutes away.

We would appreciate an eco-friendly holiday with little or no use of cars. So, if you're close to a train or bus network: even better!

We have a type-2 wallbox to charge our electric car which can be used if necessary.
