FlensburgGermany

On a city trip to Flensburg you will find yourself in the most northerly region of Germany and the third-largest town in Schleswig-Holstein where you can enjoy beaches on the Flensburg Fjord and lots of culture around the old town and museum harbour.

Experience the variety the town has to offer during your short trip to Flensburg. Whether you want to go shopping in the town centre and the large Flensburg shopping malls, learn about history in the many museums and historic town centre or spend a day relaxing at the beach, a mini-break in Flensburg has something to offer for everyone. Flensburg old town, with its historic buildings and archetypal courtyards, forms the town centre. Here you will find a large choice of cafés, bars and restaurants as well as countless shops for a relaxing shopping spree. Nordstadt is nestled in the Flensburg Fjord and has its own recreational area by the sea with a forest and a beach. The district of Westliche Höhe is distinguished by its countless parks, while it is the romantic harbour views and St. Jürgen’s church that captivate visitors in the district of Jürgensby.

Take time during your city trip to Flensburg to visit the historic port which has a unique collection of sailing boats, motor boats and steamboats. The museum shipyard, established in 1996, contains sailors and boats recreated from the 18th and 19th centuries and is a great experience for adults and children alike. During your city trip to Flensburg, a voyage on the Baltic Sea steamboat, the Alexandra, is a must. This is a floating cultural monument that departed on its maiden voyage in 1908.

At the port you can also find the Maritime Museum, founded in 1979. In the exhibitions in the old customs house and its surrounding buildings you can learn a lot about the history of Flensburg’s 700-year-old maritime tradition. Round off your visit by enjoying some homemade cakes in the museum café and having a mosey in the museum shop.

A unique sight that can’t be missed during a city trip to Flensburg is the “Red Castle by the Sea”, the Mürwik Naval Academy. The building, opened by Kaiser Wilhelm II in 1910, today is the official academy of the German navy, which captains the world-renowned training sailing ship, Gorch Fock.

Spend a fun day at the Solitude beach on your trip to Flensburg. This swimming spot at the eastern end of Flensburg has good facilities. There is free parking, a part-time lifeguard (from the German Life Saving Association) and a barbecue area.
