Historical routes around the port

Exercise while taking a walk: Make Flensburg's city centre your free outdoor gym! Especially the St. Jürgen stairs on the eastern bank are quite a challenge. If you need a breather, you can take a little break on one of the benches along the slopes and gardens. The stairs are part of the European hiking trail E1. And believe us - the climb is worth it! At the top you will be rewarded with a breathtaking panoramic view over the city and the harbour.
