For several weeks in the summer, the Flensburg Hofkultur, the special summer festival, transforms the old merchants’ and crafts centres of the inner city into a stage. There are open-air concerts, theatre, cabaret and film shows. Going back to their roots: as this is where different cultures came together in historical times. Not only did Danish and German come together into the same space, but sailing ships and international trade connections also brought the scent of the whole world into the city. Here were the smells of the Caribbean (rum), of coffee (Africa), of Asia (spices) or also sometimes – strictly Nordic – of whale and herring.
