Flensburg is situated in the north of the German state Schleswig-Holstein, on the German-Danish border. It is a relaxed, hilly town where every street provides a different, amazing view of sailing boats on the narrow inlet. Flensburg, with its historical old quarter and buildings with lovely façades also has plenty of cultural attractions, many which reflect its Danish heritage.
Flensburg is known for its excellent sailing and surfing areas along the 35-kilometre-long Flensburg Firth. The Firth lies before the gates of the city and is one of Europe’s most beautiful watersports areas, with alternating marinas and beaches.
