Beaches - Solitüde, Wassersleben

 

Nordertor,

 

Flensburg is quite a small town, with an amazing flair and a beatiful centre, I would just advise you to take a walk around, explore all the beautiful side streets.

 

Check out the water houses in Sonwik

Marienhölzung

 

And don't forget to take a relaxing break on the Fjord...

 

...oh dear, I really miss Flensburg, I want to go back...

 

EDIT:

 

there's a tiny little foot bridge in the middle of the woods near Wassersleben, on the one side you're in Germany the other side is Denmark, I used to love crossing that bridge ;)

If you are really bored you can go and visit my penalty points at the Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt in the Fördestr. Should provide hours of endless amusement...

Irish Lassie mentioned the really nice places, just adding:

- the harbor area with sport boats and traditional boats area (Museumshafen, just 500 meters from the tip of the west pier) - take a minute or two and enjoy the view from the west pier to St. Jürgen (part of town) and from the east pier to the old town

- when talking about the beautiful side streets, do not miss the Höfe (back yards), like on "Rote Straße" - drink a glass of wine or beer (and maybe eat some Flammkuchen) in the Krusehof in Rote Straße.

- the wooden tiny pedestrian bridge between Germany and DK is in Wassersleben just outside Flensburg, street name Dammweg.

 

If you are interested in Royal English History, you may be aware that the future King (either one) will be from the House of Schleswig-Holstein-Glücksburg-Sonderburg. Glücksburg is a nice water castle just 10 km from Flensburg. Sonderburg is a nice town in Denmark with a castle directly at the fjord, 35 km from Flensburg. Both are highly recommended for visiting.

 

By the way, if you are interested in boats and party on a really large scale, go to Kieler Woche, if you are not, don't.

I wouldn't miss Kieler Woche for the world!! (and haven't missed it the 4 years I've been living here) Its the highlight of my summer...and the only thing Schleswig-Holstein's got going for it :P;) The train ride home afterward is a real live soap opera/Jerry Springer-type reality show...LOVE IT

 

As for Flensburg, I've only been a few times to take my son to an eye specialist there. It is rather nice to sit along the pier in the summer and have a cold beer with a meal though. I do want to hit up the Flensburger brewery one day --sans kiddo though *grin*

Magster aren,t you are being a bit harsh on S/H,we,ve got the north sea,baltic sea and Denmark and Hamburg are easy to reach,Lubeck is quite stunning,admittedly every thing is a bit flat but even that is positve for riding a bicycle,jump on a ferry in kiel and the world is your oyster, well scandanavia and the baltic countries at least and last but not least my village of Padenstedt...um....um... we got a ponypark , a imbiss,a camping site and the bürgerstuben +2000 cows now try and beat that Maggie!

It was tongue in cheek, didn't you see the smileys? lol I'm a big city girl -Atlanta, so S-H isn't exactly my cup of tea, but I could be living somewhere much worse! I do love going to Eckernfoerde: I can either get there by bus or rail (oddly enough the 'schnellbus' is faster...lol) and have ventured over the Danish border --to Legoland several times with Junior. Done the "Kiel-Gothenburg" ferry route a few years back --in January...ass cold...do not recommend trading one winter destination for another even if the price is cheaper!--, hoping to do the Kiel-Oslo one eventually. It's just a matter of adjusting to the pace of life here...definitely much slower than in Atlanta and San Antonio...not to mention the sun barely shines here! :D

 

And I am an official card-carrying bonafide student --albeit ancient and WAAAAAAY older than all those 19 year old bratty kids-- at Uni Kiel...you beat that! :P

 

As for Padenstedt, I know exactly where it is. :lol: Drive through it on the way to Willenscharen! (blueberry picking every year...)

Next time pop round for a coffe/beer/wodka or what ever but don't forget to bring the blueberries so that my wife can bake a pie! :D

Well done, Bobbylines! Ya learn somethin' new every day, eh? *grin*

 

Why, thank you for the invite! Will definitely contact you when blueberry season officially opens in July...I don't like to bake (I always screw up everything I attempt to bake) so I'd be happy to throw back a few beers while someone else does the baking ;)

 

I cracked up when I saw this stuck to a pole of one of the 'tent bars' I was at this morning on the Ostufer...I promptly ordered 2 extra Erdbeere Bowle :P
