Economy and Infrastructure

The municipality is predominantly agricultural. In the Rathjensdorf district is the Dörpskrog country inn , which had developed into supra-local importance and was taken over in 1991 by Karsten Lindemann in the third generation.

In 1963 a 5000 m² school forest was set up in a former gravel pit at the eastern entrance to the village , which is still in a well-tended condition today. On the edge of the school forest there is a memorial for those who fell in the war. Both facilities can be traced back to the diverse activities of the former village school teacher Heinz Petersen . To the south of the school forest there is an observation station of the "Project Group Sea Eagle Protection"


The school operation of the last single-class elementary school was stopped in the 1975/76 school year, and the children have been going to school in Plön since then. In 1996 a kindergarten was set up in the former school building in Rathjensdorf, which is run jointly with the neighboring community of Lebrade .
