Prinzenpalais, Schleswig.

Introduction

Located at the end of the Schlei Förde (Slien Fjord), Schleswig grew out of the Viking settlement of Haithabu (Hedeby), which flourished as one of northern Europe's biggest trading town between the 9th and 10th centuries.

From the 12th century, the region was ruled by the Dukes of Gottorf, whose palace houses the Schleswig-Holstein Landesmuseum, the city's main attraction. The other one is the pretty fishing village of Holm, southeast of the old town.
