located at the historic circular rampart
Oldenburg in Holstein is one of the oldest towns in Schleswig-Holstein. It was originally built as a Slavic castle in the second half of the 7th century. Situated in the direct proximity of Weissenhäuser Strand, Heiligenhafen, Grossenbrode and Fehmarn, Oldenburg in Holstein is at the centre of the Baltic Sea coast resorts. Oldenburg is often visited for shopping, or a look round the Oldenburg Wall Museum – the Slavic medieval museum.
In idyllic surroundings, the Oldenburg Rampart Museum (“Wallmuseum”) presents the Slavic history of Oldenburg, which was known as “Starigard” 1000 years ago. In addition to the lively exhibitions, the large open-air site with its harbour-side location and castle offers you the opportunity to experience the Middle Ages on various event days. The town centre, with its mixture of modern buildings and conventional brick buildings with historic façades, has a pleasant atmosphere that invites you to wander and idle about. Or why not visit St Johannis’ Church, one of the oldest brick churches in Northern Europe?
