A special experience on the Flensburg Fjord that attracts sports enthusiasts to the water, is the OstseeMan.
Every year, more than 1000 athletes meet in order to start at the legendary OstseeMan triathlon in Glücksburg and fight for victory.

From there, the athletes can be cheered on vociferously.
