Welcome to Itzehoe – City on the Stör River

Shopping city, county seat, sturgeon city – interesting, beautiful and interesting facts from Itzehoe.

Welcome to Itzehoe – the city in the green, directly at the Stör, surrounded by fields, meadows and forests invites you to visit.

The longest pedestrian zone on the west coast and medium-sized specialist retailers as well as independent craftsmen, some of whom have hundreds of years of tradition, characterize the image of the shopping city of Itzehoe; restaurants, cafés and inns offer opportunities for a leisurely stop.

Even Schiller’s Long Peter, that hard-drinking first hunter in Wallenstein’s camp, had wine served here; and Günter Grass in “Kopfgeburten” sent his teacher couple from Itzehoe on their Asian vacation with a liver sausage from Feinkost-Kruse on Kirchenstraße. “Truly a delicacy,” the Nobel laureate enthused.

Attractive events throughout the year, historical sights and countless opportunities for excursions provide entertaining entertainment.

We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful city soon.
