Flensburg [5] (danish: Flensborg) is a city in Schleswig-Holstein located on the east coast. The 85000 inhabitants live around the Flensburger Förde (Flensburg fjord).


Get in

The bus station

Most people arrive here with car. Flensburg is situated at the border of Germany and Denmark, beside the motorway A7 (danish: E45) leading to Hamburg in the south and to Kolding and further north in Denmark. There are bus and train connections both from Denmark and Hamburg.

Shopping and eating pedestrian street Holm

Lots of people arrive to Flensburg from Denmark and the other nordic countries for shopping. In addition to the numerous small shops along the pedestrian street Holm (danish: Holmen) and Große Straße in the city there's a shopping center some 2 kilometers south from the city, Fördepark as well as Poetsch' at Kupfermühle near the Danish border. Other shopping centers are Scandinavien Park and Citti Park. The Scandinavian Park is conveniently located right off the northernmost exit of A7 motorway in Germany. Due to its location and tourists visiting it is allowed to open all week long and attracts locals from both sides of the board who go there for a Sunday grocery run. Price differences between Denmark and Germany may make a certain item a bargain for Danish people but it might be expensive for Germans.
