Find a cheap self-drive holiday at Risskov and take the trip to Kappeln, located in Schleswig-Holstein. Visit the small idyllic harbour town, which takes its name from the St Nicholas Chapel. This is where the last herring fence in Europe is found, and what is a herring fence? The fences, which consist of poles with a network of wood between them, were set out into the water in such a way that they formed a funnel and thus guided all the herring that came in with the tide into the fishermen's nets. The town's main attraction is the Amanda Dutch mill, built in 1888, which was used both for grinding grain and as the town's sawmill until 1964. The mill has undergone several restorations over the years, and today it stands beautifully with its own small mill museum, and from the high gallery of the mill, there is an excellent view of Kappeln and the Slien. At 30 metres, it is the tallest mill in the whole of Schleswig. Find the trip at Risskov and go on a real family drive holiday.
