- Excursion, dance- and moonlight journeys on the idyllic Treene to Schwabstedt and back.

The Treene is the biggest tributary stream of the Eider, about 98 km long. The Treene was an important sales route in the Viking age which connected the east and North Sea. In addition, she was hiding place of Claus Störtebeker. The water lily flower bloom on the Treene starts in the middle of June and ends at the end of August.

The health resort Schwabstedt is due to the lower stretches of the idyllic Treene, which is an angler paradise because of its pure water and richness in fish, there where the hilly landscape changes to the  extensive river marsh. The place Schwabstedt is located on a rest from the Saale-ice-age. Elevation highly in the municipality of Schwabstedt, is after all 43 m, one of the highest in the complete circle north frieze country. The 750 years old Schwabstedt was diocesan town of Schleswig-Holstein once. The picturesque woods, moors and heath areas around Schwabstedt in which game animals, curlew and otters are at home, as well as the varied Treenepartien were already described by Theodor Storm in his novella "To the woods and water joy" and "Renate". You experience recreational forest in the Lehmsieker state forest with its old beeches and oak inventory which count Schleswig-Holstein as one of the most beautiful ones in the country.
