Captain's Trail



4.97 km long
City walk
An eventful maritime city walk
When a sailing ship arrived at Flensburg harbour in the 19th century, its captain had a variety of tasks to perform. Goods had to be cleared through customs and prepared for unloading. Needful repairs to the ship's hull or masts were discussed with the craftsmen, and new helmsmen or sailors were hired.
The Captain’s trail follows a Flensburg-captain on his tour after landing. The path is tagged with floor markers. Station signs describe the historical maritime locations along this path. In addition, you may learn much more about Flensburg's maritime history at Maritime Museum ”Schifffahrtsmuseum Flensburg” (Station 1). This is actually also the starting point of the Captains' Trail.
We wish you exciting discoveries and lots of fun!
