Flensburg Hotels

Germany’s northernmost settlement just moments from the Danish border, the pretty port town of Flensburg sits at the innermost tip of the rippling Flensburg Fjord. Whilst most famous for its alluringly fresh brand of beer, the town also brims with museums detailing its centuries-old past - from the herring fishing days of the Middle Ages, to its booming rum-soaked 18th century. Hosting community events and sailing regattas, the harbour is the town’s centrepiece, whilst the surrounding fjordside scenery offers picturesque trails for hikers and bikers alike.

Things to see

Situated within a merchant’s yard right on the docks, Flensburg Maritime Museum details the town’s seafaring history. Occupying a former customs storehouse, you’ll see model ships and navigational equipment, as well as the town’s rum museum in the basement. The Naval Academy at Murwik is the primary training hub for Germany’s Naval officers. Overlooking the town’s eastern shore, its nicknamed ‘red castle’ for its imposingly Gothic redbrick architecture. Nearby, those seeking tranquillity will find it in picture perfect style at the aptly named Solitude Beach. With its cool calm waters and gentle Baltic Sea breeze, it’s a popular spot to swim or sunbathe come summer. For a tantalizing taste of Flensburg’s beer heritage, take a tour of the old Flensburger Brewery. Producing ‘Flens’ since 1888, the bustling plant is still supplied by an underground water well, fed by Scandinavian Ice Age water.
