Yachtcharter Flensburg

Book quickly and securely with top advice.

At the innermost end of the Flensburg Förde in the western Baltic Sea lies Flensburg. From here, the Bay of Kiel and the Danish Süd Sea are popular destinations at the end of a scenic route.

Beginners will find good conditions to gain experience in Flensburg's inner and outer harbors, and families will appreciate the short stages here and in the Danish Südsee.

The Schlei is also an interesting sailing area. The estuary between Kappeln and Schleswig invites with its quiet, reed-covered shores and the decidedly rustic atmosphere for relaxed sailing. The coast towards Süden attracts worthwhile destinations such as Eckernförde, Laboe or Kiel and from a sailing point of view, the area offers the variety of calm coastal sailing and the Baltic Sea, which can even be wild on some days.

Climate: temperate with temperatures between 15 and 20 degrees

Yacht charter Flensburg

The 34 kilometer long side arm of the Baltic Sea, the Flensburg Fjord, is considered one of the most beautiful water sports areas of the Baltic Sea, visited by sailors from all over the world.

The city itself is located at the innermost end of the fjord, and welcomes you as a cosmopolitan port city with history and Scandinavian flair. The Danish border is just a few kilometers to the north.

Flensburg is a city that will impress you with beautiful facades, a lot of depth and a large number of recreational opportunities. Whether theater, pubs, cabaret, restaurants, museums, shopping malls, a beautiful old town or a gorgeous landscape - Flensburg offers everything to make your vacation an unforgettable experience.

Here, on the German-Danish border, an excellent maritime infrastructure and an extensive sailing paradise await you. Use the moorings in our own marinas or in an idyllic guest harbor as a base for your yacht charter Flensburg vacation in the western Baltic Sea. On your way to Kiel Bay, Denmark or the islands and bays of the Danish South Sea a varied coastline awaits to be discovered by you. Enjoy the numerous beaches and rolling hills of the Baltic Sea's natural landscape during your sailing trip.

How to get there: Flensburg is well connected to the German freeway network with the A7 freeway. Parking at the marina is possible. Those who prefer to travel by train can use the well-developed route network of the Deutsche Bahn and those who come from further away can also travel via the airports in Hamburg, Kiel or Sonderburg (DK).

Inner and outer fjords - from Flensburg along the coast to Denmark

1 week: Flensburg - Sønderborg - Kappeln - Arnis - Eckernförde - Damp - Glücksburg - Flensburg

2 weeks: for a trip longer than one week, we recommend exploring the German coast along from Flensburg. Kiel, Laboe and Heiligenhafen are popular places for a charter along the German Baltic coast. Or you can start from Flensburg to the Danish South Sea.

If you start from Flensburg, the way out of the fjord leads you past cornfields, green forests and windmills. The north of Germany at the border to Denmark often shows itself very quiet and extremely green in the summer months.

What is especially nice about this sailing area is the alternation of possible stops between the German and Danish sides. It is not necessary to clear in and out. Thus, a trip through the Flensburg Fjord is especially popular with sailors who appreciate short daily stages and like to always have a port of call in case of sudden bad weather. Families will find their dream vacation here as well as sailing novices who want to find their way around the challenging area of the Baltic Sea.

The inner fjord even counts as an inland area. The so-called outer f jord counts as a maritime area, but is still protected. The Holnis peninsula, which extends prominently into the fjord, is considered the boundary between the two areas. Navigation is not undemanding, there are some shallow areas and the coastline is deep until close to shore, but there are often large rocks in the shore area. However, with a little caution and concentrated sailing, this is quite doable even for novices. You will be rewarded with places like Sønderborg, with the bronze sculpture of Günter Grass or Haderslev located at the end of Haderslev Fjord, with many original buildings from the 17th and 18th century. Try the Danish hot dogs here. Glücksburg with its large Fördeland-Therme offers bathing fun for young and old even in bad weather, and the town's castle is one of the most important Renaissance castles in northern Germany.

If you want to extend the whole thing a little further, turn south along the German coast. South of Kappeln lies the Schlei. The estuary meanders like a river in the direction of Schleswig. Here you are protected in strong winds and places like Arnis or Maasholm offer good excursion destinations with their quaint charm.

The Danish South Sea - the Caribbean of the North

1 week: Flensburg - Høruphav - Marstal (Aerø) - Rudkøbing or Troense-Svendborg - Fåborg - Fynshav - Flensburg

Probably the most popular sailing area in the Baltic Sea is located between Funen in the north and the island of Aerø in the south. The town of Marstal on the island is considered the gateway to the Danish South Sea from the direction of Flensburg. It is a small area, but there are 55 small and tiny islands in the Sydfynske Øhav, the Southern Finnish Archipelago, as the area is called in Danish.

The area is especially suitable for less experienced sailors and families. Similar to the Flensburg Fjord, the destinations are close together and the wind conditions are reliable. Only the shallow water has to be taken into account. Should the wind increase, an unpleasant wave quickly builds up here. Ferries also operate in the area, connecting the mainland and the main islands. Along the routes of the ferries caution and attention is required. Of the islands, 8 are inhabited and offer the possibility to get food again and again.

You can learn more about each of the islands of the Danish South Sea on our Denmark page.

On our blog, we will introduce you to which areas are particularly suitable for traveling with children. In addition to the Danish South Seas, these include in particular the Croatian areas of Central and Northern Dalmatia. And as far as sustainability is concerned, a cruise through the Danish South Seas has a special plus point: the good accessibility of the starting port, such as Flensburg, by train or car.
