Schleswig (25,000 inhabitants) is a pleasant town at the Baltic Sea and the river Schlei. It’s quite old – in 2004, the Schleswiger celebrate their city’s 1200th birthday. Schleswig also called as South Juteland.


There are still a lot of beautiful medieval and other sights around. One of the highlights is the Dom with its famous carved wooden altar. Also worth seeing is Gottorf Castle (Schloss Gottorf) which is now a museum. Don’t miss the Viking Museum Haithabu (Winkinger Museum Haithabu) and enjoy the Days of the Vikings (Wikingertage) in August.
