Schleswig Things to Do

  • Schleswiger Dom or Schleswig Cathedral

    The Cathedral of St Peter in Schleswig rises high above the town and its vicinity. Its 112-metre spire was added to the building in the years 1894-1984 but the church itself is much older and dates back to the 12th century, although it has undergone many alterations since. One of the original fragments of the church is the Romanesque portal of...

The real treasures of St. Peter's Cathedral are to be found inside.To find so many mediaeval artistic treasures in this small seaside town,off the main tourist track, was a most unexpected bonus....

  • Walk around the city

    Schleswig is a old city originally founded by Vikings. During the first millenium of the citys history it has more or less been equally influenced by Danish culture and German culture. This mix in influence can be seen in the hanseatic influence on the building style in the inner city. The Danish infuence can still 150 years after the city was last...

    A small market taking place when we arrived, several bars and restaurants around too, imagine this is a good place to spend a summer evening, maybe notso a snowy March morning?

  • Harbour

    Our B & B was just a short walk to the harbour and even on a cold March afternoon there was some activity. Interesting to see the fishing boats. I imagine it's a great place to visit on a warmer day.

  • Asgaard

    A Hausbraueri a few minutes walk from home for us, too hard to resist. Very busy but fast service, food and beer excellent. Asgaard beer was one of the best sampled on our week in Schleswig - Holstein.Mrs Bonio enjoyed the vegetarian options too, a return visit on the cards soon?

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We arrived by train from Flensburg, just a short ride. Easy to reach Schleswig from Hamburg and Kiel too. The Bahnhof is some distance from the town centre, it's probably wise to catch a bus, we felt energetic - the walk took around half an hour, luckily the weather stayed dry until we reached our B & B.
    Had a few minutes to wait for our train, interesting to watch and listen to (photo2) hundreds of crows (krahe?) building nests in the trees opposite.
