A small town, right in the north of Germany, Flensburg is only a stone’s throw away from Denmark. Besides its Scandinavian charm, a walk through town with its maritime harbor, colorful cottages, enchanting old alleys and winding lanes entice even resistant romantics. In between quaint cafés and shops are a welcome rest for tired legs or some variety to look around. The „Red Street“ also known as Flensburg´s jewelry box is an inviting old lane to explore museums, shops or cafés.
Also whilst in the northern part of the old town, don’t miss a visit to the Oluf-Samson-Gang which is a small alleyway busting with history.
