Ploen is located approximately 170 miles (274 kilometers) from Berlin, the capital of Germany, and about 45 miles (72 kilometers) from Hamburg.
Vacationing in just one place, no matter how popular, will only ever furnish you with a limited view into the broader personality of a region. So be sure to delve into Schleswig-Holstein's other attractions. While you're in the area, check out the Bordesholm Monastery and Museum for Geological History in and around Bordesholm, which is roughly 16 miles (26 kilometers), away from Ploen. If you are ready for more, make your way over to Kiel for the Sparkassen-Arena and Kiel Opera House. Kiel is approximately 17 miles (27 kilometers) from Ploen.
When you are ready to venture further afield why not check out the nearest regional area. Luebeck lies 25 miles (40 kilometers) away and features visitor attractions including Travemuende Ferry Port, Hansapark and Museum of Nature and the Environment. Museum Holstentor and Theater Figuren Museum are also good to visit.
Those with a love of history won't want to miss the area's fine old castles, war relics and monuments and historic mansions. Delve into Ploen's heavenly side by visiting the area's churches and other sites of spiritual significance.
Pack your gear or rent it on the spot, and make the most of the region's water sports. Canoeing is an option. Another option is sailing. Take hiking shoes and sign up for one of the guided nature walks and city walking tours.
At the end of your stay in Ploen, use your last euros on last-minute souvenirs and bid a fond Tschüss (farewell).
