Jensen on Tour - Friedrichstadt - Schleswig-Holstein

Vores første overnatningssted i Slesvig-Holsten var Friedrichstadt. Byen med sin retvinklede gadestruktur, kanaler og mange huse i nederlandsk renæssancestil minder om en typisk hollandsk by. Grunden er, at byen i 1600-tallet blev bygget af tilflyttede nederlandske religiøse flygtninge, som blev kaldt til Sydslesvig af gottorpske hertug Frederik den 3.

Vi fik selvfølgelig skudt nogle billeder sidst på eftermiddagen, før vi spiste en typisk mega stor schnitzel på restauranten "Altes Amtsgericht".

Our first accommodation in Schleswig-Holstein was Friedrichstadt. The city with its orthogonal street structure, channels and many houses in the Dutch Renaissance style looks like a typical Dutch city. The reason is that the city in the 1600s was built by newly arrived Dutch religious refugees who were called to Schleswig by Gottorp, Duke Frederik 3.

We shot some photos in the late afternoon before we had a typical mega big schnitzel at the restaurant "Altes Amtsgericht".
