Up to 1864, Flensburg belonged to Denmark. There is still a significant Danish minority in the city. Earlier, Flensburg was a thriving merchant city, to which many merchant houses still testify. Furthermore, the local beer, Flensburger Pilsener (shortly named Flens), is famous. It is bottled in swing top bottles, and you can visit the brewery for free. The city also has many tax-free shops, focused primarily at the northern neighbors who can buy alcohol in bulk for cheaper than in Denmark.
Flensburg has 90,000 inhabitants. The Danish minority has their own schools, churches and cultural associations.
Flensburg is situated in the far north of the northern state Schleswig-Holstein, directly on the border between Germany and Denmark. The city lies in a hilly area around the Flensburger Fjord and is part of the Baltic Sea. The nearest larger city is Kiel (86 kilometers south).
The economy still relies on the border trading between Germany and Denmark. Some Danish companies have an office in Flensburg to evade the (higher) taxes in Denmark. Furthermore, the city still focuses more on technology. In Flensburg-Rude there is a technology center where young entrepreneurs can develop innovative plans.
Flensburg has no airport for commercial flights. The nearest airport is Kiel. The airport is easily accessible with a rental car via the B-76. Moreover, there are only flights from Kiel airport to Berlin, Hamburg and the island Sylt, and only a few charter flights.
Flensburg has only bus lines, which run on working days every 20 minutes. In the evenings (after 19:30), the buses run every hour, and on Sundays there are reduced services. On the weekends there are night services (to 03:00).
Flensburg is not a busy city and you can drive around comfortably. Also finding a parking space for your car is no problem. Just east of the city runs the Autobahn 7, that continues throughout Denmark as the E-45. The Bundesstrassen 199 and 200 run through the city, making various districts easily accessible.
