Flensburg Cruises

It could be that dinosaurs once played here and that Harald Bluetooth's Viking ship plowed through the waters of the Flensburg Fjord. We are not really sure - however we do know that the Oxen Trail connected Jutland with the heartland of Europe in a north-south direction and crossed the trade route from Angeln to Frisia just outside the city. Where roads and water meet is an ideal place for settlement. Thus a trading settlement arose around the oldest church in Flensburg, St. Johannis, in the innermost corner of the Flensburg Fjord. Legend has it that the knight Fleno built a waystation there to demand payment from merchants passing through.
