The fishing grounds of the Baltic Sea are alive with huge salmon, sea trout and magnificent cod. There are plenty of high-seas cutters and guides that will bring you closer to a record catch. Meanwhile, fishing enthusiasts can head to the piers, jetties and beaches to observe abundant schools of herring and countless thousands of garfish.
The widely branched network of inland waterways also provides unbeatable spots for enjoyable fishing. Over 37 species of fish populate the crystal-clear lakes and untouched rivers, including large pike that grow to over 1.20 metres in length. Some veritable rarities are also indigenous here, including the legendary vendance.
And the best of it is: Unlike in many other regions of Germany, fishing novices can acquire a tourist permit to head off on a fishing trip without first completing an examination.
So make sure to pack your rod, reel and bait the next time you come on holiday. Petri heil!
Fishing enthusiasts will find everything they could hope for in Germany's number 1 water region. Over 1,900 kilometres of Baltic coast, 2,000 lakes and 26,000 kilometres of flowing water offer the perfect fishing areas for anyone.
