Hotel Birke in Detail

Your 4-star Superior Hotel in Kiel

If you're looking to indulge in a wellness holiday in Kiel or an active holiday in the beautiful capital of Schleswig-Holstein, the family-run 4-star Superior Hotel is the perfect address! Explore the surrounding area and culture by bike and on foot, savour fine local cuisine, and relax at the Birke Spa - the sustainably operated Hotel Birke is the ideal starting point.

Location & Surroundings

Located near the forest edge - just 3 miles from Kiel city centre. Furthermore, attractive and tranquil seaside resorts with relaxing beaches and cliffs are just a 15-minute drive away, ensuring that fans of wind and water are well catered for.

Dining & Leisure

Indulge in the hotel's own Fischers Fritz Restaurant, offering dishes crafted from regional specialties such as dyke meadow lamb and game from Holstein hunting. Freshly caught fish is sourced daily directly from North and Baltic Sea cutters and breeders from the Holstein lakes and rivers.

Supreme quality for the ultimate enjoyment - that's the motto; whether it's fish, meat, or freshly harvested vegetables: The hotel places great emphasis on regional, seasonal, fresh, and fairly produced products.

As a founding member of FEINHEIMISCH - Delight from Schleswig-Holstein e.V. and a supporter of Slow Food, the hotel uses over 60% regional ingredients. It only resorts to products from nearby regions when the desired quality is not available in Schleswig-Holstein.

Wellness & Spa

At Birke Spa, we use natural and ecological products sourced from the abundant offerings of sea and land. Experience the North with all your senses here.

The hotel features a 6 x 12 metre swimming pool, 1.30 metres deep, which is a popular spot for exercise. Swim vigorously or let yourself drift almost weightlessly. The water is pleasantly warm at 29°C and is gently chlorinated.

To ensure you rest comfortably, the teak loungers are equipped with soft padded cushions and cosy wool blankets. You will feel your soul and body come to rest.

Finnish Sauna

The Finnish sauna is lined with spruce wood and heated with a sauna stove topped with stones. This classic form of Finnish sauna has a long tradition in Northern Europe and helps to strengthen the immune system. The room temperature is 90-95°C. Depending on the time of day, invigorating infusions energise you or harmonising aromas contribute to your relaxation.

Vital Sauna

A pleasant room temperature of 60°C – especially suitable for those who rarely use a sauna. The changing light colour therapy soothes the senses and positively affects well-being.


With a room temperature of 40°C, it is particularly suitable for beginners to sauna use. The heat is evenly distributed through the walls. Here, the body & couple treatment Mare Balticum also takes place.

Infrared Sauna

Experience in the new infrared cabin, with a room temperature between 45-50°C, the capabilities of special infrared rays. They improve circulation, stimulate metabolism, detoxify, and relax the muscles. Enjoy with your loved ones in a room made of FSC certified Canadian cedar wood the three different infrared radiations: far, medium, and near.

Salt Steam Bath

45°C room temperature and very high humidity – manually added Holsteiner brine with essential scents has a liberating and calming effect on the respiratory tract.

Outdoor Area

After the sauna, it is important to cool down your body slowly and supply the organism with fresh oxygen. In the outdoor area and wellness garden, you can breathe deeply and inhale the fresh Baltic Sea air.


Cool your body slowly from feet to head with a refreshing jet of water after the sauna. Feel under the cold-water showers how the fine and strong drops activate your organism.

Foot Baths

Relax afterwards with a warm foot bath, which helps to stabilise your circulation and keep it at the right temperature for the next sauna session.

Kneipp Pool

In the Kneipp pool, walk lightly in the stork walk through the cold water. During short breaks, feel your feet warming up. With further walks through the Kneipp pool, focus on the perception of your body. The water treading stimulates your circulation and the cardiovascular system.

Wellness Garden

From the entire Birke Spa, you have direct access to the wellness garden. Designed according to Feng Shui principles, it offers a place of relaxation for those seeking tranquillity.

Beach chairs on islands of beach sand invite you to dream, while the water in the landscaped pond gently murmurs. Your senses are sharpened by the scent of thyme, sage, rosemary, lavender, and many other herbs.

Walking on the barefoot path, you experience sensations that are otherwise rare: surfaces of fine pebbles, bark mulch, gravel, and wood chips stimulate the sensitive foot reflex zones, activate the foot muscles, and bring the torso into balance.
