Welcome to Schleswig

Founded in 804, after a major Viking community put down roots across the Schlei fjord, the town was the continent’s economic hub for some 200 years. Later the Dukes of Gottorf made Schleswig their power base from the 16th to 18th centuries. And countless generations of fisherfolk and their families have left their marks.

You can enjoy the long local heritage at excellent museums and along the pretty waterfront.
