Fishing The River Elbe is a true angler’s paradise. There are over 20 varieties of fish in the Elbe – eel, perch, ruffe, pike, bream, gudgeon, silver bream, bleak, dace, zander and burbot to name but a few. You can purchase a fishing permit at Stover Strand Holiday Park. You can also buy fishing equipment as well as bait-fish, and we can freeze your catch for you too. Alternatively, simply cook your freshly caught fish at one of our barbecue areas on the banks of the river. If you like to fish from a boat, you will find safe moorings in our marina.
Animation Every Saturday, from early May to mid-September, and every day except Sunday in the summer holidays, we offer a colourful, varied programme of animations for young and old. You will find more information in our Events Flyer.
Excursions The area surrounding Stover Strand Holiday Park offers countless attractions and sights worth visiting. Especially popular are of course trips to Hamburg by public transport or by boat.
