    Bad Segeberg is home to the Karl May Festival. Every year hundreds of visitors flock to the open-air stage on mortar hill to experience the Wild West close up. Any fan of Chief Winnetou will love the Karl May Festival. The spectacular stunt scenes and breathtaking dressage shows, are guaranteed to have visitors on the edge of their seats. With cowboys and indians, blazing guns and wild brawls, the festival promises to be an unforgettable experience for everyone watching. The Wild West is no longer to be found in Texas or Arizona, but in the heart of Holstein's Switzerland.

    Very cosy and rustic place. Everything seems to be wooden. Seems to be a popular place among locals. It was very crowded the two or three times we've been there. Their salad and pizza taste fantastic and so did the soup. This restaurant is as well located on Bad Segeberg's pedestrian zone, beautifully in front of the church, and only a walk of 5 mns away from the mortar hill/Kalkberg.

    This local bakery provids with a big selection of wonderful baked goods, sandwiches, cakes, cookies, all sorts of bread, breadrolls and more. Coffee too was great tasting. Luckily we found this cosy spot right when heavy rain started, and thought this was the perfect place to escape the nasty weather. Very nice place, on Bad Segeberg's lovely pedestrian zone, close to restaurant Central Gasthof. Very nice salesladies. Self service. Clean restrooms.

    This restaurant too is a very nice place, and is as well lovely located on Bad Segeberg's pedestrian zone. Very calm place, waitresses are extra ordinary friendly, and been not bothered at all though we made it there close to the end of the supper hour. We had a big plate of different sorts of Hering, fried potatoes and loins of pork, salad. All very tasty, fresh, and in almost too big of portions. Since the restaurant belongs to the hotel Central Gasthof, this accommodation must be as wonderful as the restaurant's food, service, and atmosphere are.

    Kirchenrouten are signed routes for walking or cycling along certain areas of north Germany's Schleswig Holstein, and are provided by Ev.-Luth. Kirchenkreis Ploen-Sege­berg. Their recommended routes are to be understand as little advice to take a walk, a deep breath and feel re-inspired by nature and history. The signed routes enclude ways around carp ponds which were received by monks, then along Limespath which means the region of former Obodriten and Saxony, then the visit of one of the oldest stone church with former position of bishop Vicelin, then stopping by noble manor houses of back of the days, then former abbeys, and castles, and more of special sights. Ev.-Luth. Kirchenkreis Ploen-Sege­berg offers maps and broschures regarding these routes, which we enjoyed. Despite the cold winter or even due.

    Karl Friedrich May (February 25, 1842 – March 30, 1912) was a German writer, noted mainly for books set in the American Old West, (best known for the characters of Winnetou and Old Shatterhand) and similar books set in the Orient and Middle East with Kara Ben Nemsi and Hadschi Halef Omar. In addition, he wrote stories set in his native Germany, in China and in South America. May also wrote poetry. Karl Friedrich May was born into a family of poor weavers in Ernstthal (later part of the Kingdom of Saxony). He was the fifth child out of fourteen.. he suffered from visual impairment shortly after birth and suffered night blindness, which got worse. During his school time he got private music and composition lessons. 1856 he started his teacher training in Waldenburg. His career as a teacher ended 1861 abruptly after few weeks when he was accused by his roommate of stealing a pocket watch. Therefore he had to be in gaol in Chemnitz for six weeks and his license to teach was revoked permanently. During the following years he tried to earn a living by giving private education, writing tales, composing and declaiming. But these did not secure his livelihood. As consequence he started thefts and frauds. He was sentenced to four years in a workhouse. From 1865 to 1869 he was in gaol in the workhouse Osterstein Castle (Zwickau). Because of good behavior he became administrator of the prison’s library and had the chance to read much including travel literature. He planned to become an author. After his release he yet failed starting a good existence and continued with thefts and frauds. He got caught, but fled beyond Saxon boundaries to Bohemia, where he was detained for vagabondage. He was in gaol again in Waldheim from 1870 to 1874. There he met the catholic prison’s catechist Johannes Kochta, who’s influence helped May to find to himself.
