NOTE: My daughter, Jessica, was a student in Flensburg, and she sent in her favorite route in that beautiful old Baltic bi-lingual harbor town on the Danish border. It's one of the few runs where you can run over an open border, where people speak 2 languages.

Flensburg is the northernmost city in Germany. It lies on the Flensburg Förde, which is a long fjord that eventually leads to the Baltic sea. This run takes you along the Förde, right across the border to Denmark without you even having to take your passport.
The Flensburg Fjiord Route
The route starts north of the town centre. You can get there on the No.1 bus towards Krusau/DK from the centre in about 10 minutes. Get off at the stop called Ostseebad, and head east towards the water. There are several walking paths leading down to the beach.
|Along Flensburg Fjord|
In Kupfermühle you can catch a bus back to the center of Flensburg.
