Your 4-Star Superior Hotel in Kiel

If you want to spend a wellness holiday in Kiel or an active holiday in Schleswig-Holstein's beautiful state capital, then the family-run 4-star superior hotel is just the right address! Discover the surrounding countryside and culture on excursions by bike and on foot, enjoy fine local cuisine and relax in the Birke Spa - the sustainably run Hotel Birke is the ideal starting point.

Location & Surroundings

Near the edge of the forest - only 4.8 km from downtown Kiel. Furthermore, attractive and quiet seaside resorts with relaxing beaches and steep banks are only a 15-minute drive away, so that fans of wind and water also get their money's worth.

Dining & Leisure

You enjoy dishes from typical regional specialties such as dike meadow lamb and game from Holstein hunting in the hotel's own Fischers Fritz Restaurant. Freshly caught fish is fetched daily directly from North and Baltic Sea cutters and from breeders of the Holstein lakes and rivers. 

Highest quality for the highest enjoyment - that is the motto; Whether fish, meat or freshly harvested vegetables: the hotel attaches great importance to regional, seasonal, fresh and fairly produced products. 

As a founding member of FEINHEIMISCH - Genuss aus Schleswig-Holstein e.V. and promoter of Slow Food, the hotel uses over 60% regional food. It is only then switched to other products from nearby regions if the desired quality is not offered in Schleswig-Holstein. 

Wellness & Spa

In the Birch Spa, natural and ecological products from the rich offer of sea and land are used. Here you will experience the north with all your senses.

The hotel has a 6 x 12 meter swimming pool, 1.30 meters deep, and is a popular place to move. Swim vigorously or drift almost weightlessly. The water has a pleasant temperature of 29 °C, the water is gently chlorinated.

To make you rest comfortably bedded, the teak loungers are equipped for you with softly padded cushions and cozy 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 on which stones are placed. 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, they are energized with stimulating infusions or contribute to your relaxation with harmonizing aromas.

Vital sauna

Comfortable 60 °C room temperature - especially suitable for people who rarely sauna. The alternating light-color therapy soothes the senses and has a positive effect on well-being.


With 40 °C room temperature especially suitable for starting saunas. The heat is evenly distributed over the walls. Here also the body & couple application Mare Balticum will take place.

Infrared sauna

Feel in the new infrared cabin with a room temperature between 45-50 °C, what the special infrared rays can do everything. Among other things, they improve blood circulation, stimulate the metabolism, break down harmful substances and relax the muscles. Enjoy with your loved ones in a room made of FSC certified Canadian cedar wood the three different infrared rays far, medium and near.


45 °C room temperature and very high humidity - the manually supplied Holstein brine with essential fragrances has a liberating and soothing effect on the respiratory tract.

Open air area

After the Saunagang it is important to cool down its body slowly and to supply the body with fresh oxygen. In the outdoor area and wellness garden you can breathe so properly and inhale the fresh Baltic Sea air.


With a refreshing water jet you cool your body after the sauna session, from the feet to the head, slowly little by little. Feel under the cold water showers as the fine and strong drops activate your body.

Foot baths

Following relaxing with a warm foot bath contributes to the fact that your circulation is stabilized and remains for the next sauna course on temperature.


In the Kneippbecken you stride light-footed in the stork course by the cold water. In short breaks you feel how your feet warm up. With further walks through the Kneipp basin you direct your attention to the perception of your body. Treading water stimulates your circulation and blood flow.

Wellness garden

From the entire Birch Spa you have direct access to the wellness garden. This was created according to Feng Shui guidelines and offers peace seekers a place to relax.

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

Walking along the barefoot path, you perceive sensations to which you are otherwise rarely exposed: Floor coverings of fine pebbles, bark mulch, gravel and wood chips stimulate the sensitive foot reflex zones, activate the foot muscles and balance the torso.
