8 days Ostseefjörd Schlei



A retreat from our everyday lives, an invitation to find breath and relaxation as well as fun- clowning in a protected space in nature.

Meditation and Yoga will be offered in the mornings for the early birds and after breakfast we will clown for the first half of the day.

We can enjoy our home cooked meals under the trees and the stars-all prepared with the best ingredient-love. We can sing, dance, and play and have a great time to remember!

An all-inclusive, exclusive “treat retreat”-

look! Here`s the plan



This is for any clowns and “clownstobe” in need of a holiday with a balance of active yet decelerated clowning allowing time to relax. Also suitable for couples. Welcome all! No prerequisites needed. Just you and your curiosity as you are in this moment in your life.



Close to the Danish border, at the narrowest point to the North and Baltic Seas. Schleswig and its surroundings have many cultural and nature experiences to offer. Tracing the Viking`s footsteps in Haithabu, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Water sports activities (SUP and Kanu), the impressive Gottorf Castle on Schleswig’s museum island, the beautiful Baroque Garden and the Giant Globe, the City Museum or the St. Petri Cathedral, the fishermen's settlement Holm are just a few of the interesting places Schleswig has to offer.

We will be staying at Klöndeel, a former farmhouse located in the small village of Loopstedt near Schleswig. Simple and loving furnishings and a large outdoor grounds will be our home for the 8 day Clown Retreat and Relax.

The Klöndeel Association has existed since 1978 and is a non-profit organisation.

It is located in the middle of the nature reserve of the Haddebyer Noor. The immediate area is characterized by the Noor, an inland lake-like continuation of the Schlei, with belts of swamps and reeds, hills formed by the Ice Age and pastures of the farms.

The steep bank of the Haddebyer Noor has a deepening at this point and gives access to the water. The outdoor area with a sports and play area, numerous hedgerows and old trees, a small alder forest and an orchard meadow extends to the water and offers its own small sandy beach on the shore. On the other bank of the Noor, across from our bathing area, lies the famous Viking settlement of Haithabu. It can be reached on foot in about an hour.

the facilitator



a clown (La) , trained as facilitator with NosetoNose in London. Angela founded and runs the remise / workshop for clown research in Potsdam, runs clowning workshops and further education courses throughout Germany and internationally. Angela Hopkins thrives in the spaces between cultures and languages, ideals and realities, the mundane and the absurd, tragic and comic. Clowning opened up the doors to all these inspiring worlds and more. Born in Bristol (UK), raised both in the UK and in Germany, shy by nature, mother of four, co-founder of Timeout a holistic farm for youth with special needs, Waldorf English teacher and project manager, Scottish touring cook, and clowning facilitator. The common threads in every aspect of her life are play, playfulness and joy.


As a trained and accredited facilitator, I am committed to inform my practice of teaching clowning from a person-centered approach to exploring the inner clown. I stay true to this spirit of clowning by positively respecting each person’s creative process. It is my conviction that by focusing on an individual’s process, encouraging emotional expression, we get to the heart of working with the theater clown. In clowning, we support the search for authenticity, freeing the imagination and nurturing connection to oneself and others which in turn enriches both the social and personal dimensions of our lives.


I look forward to sharing a wonder- full week with you!






the cook



approaching love and cooking with reckless abandon!  Christina has taken part in many clowning workshops with both myself and in the UK. She combines her love of food with her passion for life. She puts mindfulness at the heart of her planning and cooking with the aim to nourish not only the body but also the heart. When she’s not cooking somewhere in a remote area of Scotland or the Isles she loves to dance, sing and paint among other creative artistic expressions!
