This stunning cottage is close to the Danish border north of Lübeck, sleeps 2 adults and up to 4 kids and is chic, modern and filled with interesting art. Dating back over 100 years, it’s fresh and contemporary in terms of decor, with white walls and designer lighting. The cottage has a garden with swings and outdoor seating and is well located for trips to the beach and exploration of northern Germany and southern Denmark. We’d be the first to say that Flensburg is a little off the tourist map, but we know that this residence is a sensational place to stay and experience this delightful area like a local family, in exquisite surroundings.

We stayed in the home of Wiebke and her family for a week. The kids were so happy with all the toys and especially the rings in the living room. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood (walking distance to the beach!) and Wiebke had wonderful tips for us in the surroundings. The house has an open stairs so might not be suitable for baby's and toddlers, but for our kids (6,7 &9) it was perfect. Flensburg itself is not the most cosmopolitan city to visit, but fun for a day or so. We drove out to Legoland (1h45m drive) which was so much fun. Truly one of the best amusement parks I have been too. And that says a lot: because I don't like amusement parks :-) Communication was super easy and fun with Wiebke and she left a bunch of nice things to eat and drink for us when we arrived late at the house. I would most definitely recommend this place.

We spent 10 days in Flensburg with our 4-year-old and 9-month-old boys, and had a wonderful stay at this charming cottage! The house was spacious and filled with beautiful vintage and modern art pieces (the owners have a gallery in town). It is located in a very green, quiet and peaceful area, within walking distance from the beach as well as food shopping. Our older son had plenty of toys to play with and loved the little garden. The kitchen was fully equipped with all the utensils and appliances needed to cook our baby’s meals. Wiebke left clear instructions and a lot of good recommendations for outdoor activities and restaurants. She was very helpful and responsive to any queries prior to and during our entire stay (thank you for the wine, games and chocolates!). She kindly left a stroller for us as we wanted to travel as light as possible with our kids. A car was definitely needed to get there and drive around, but it was also a great opportunity to pass the border and discover several Danish towns and beaches. An “off the beaten track” destination but exactly what we were looking for to discover a bit of Northern Germany and enjoy family time!

Flensburg, Germany

The jewel of the north

Germany’s northernmost town is just a short hop from the border with Denmark and attracts the neighboring Danes for its shopping. It’s a pretty place, arranged around Flensburg Fjord with ferries, sailing regattas and cruises making the most of the water. Dad might enjoy a sip or two of the local Flensburg Pilsner - he might disappear for the afternoon for a tour of the brewery - while for kids there’s plenty to do around the water, including a shipyard museum and narrow pedestrianised cobbled streets to wander. Just out of town is the Renaissance era Glücksburg Castle, once the seat of Danish kings.
