Photographer's Note

Seeing Denmark by boat is a popular way to take advantage of the country’s numerous waterways – you can see why the Vikings chose this as their main home so many years ago. To experience Denmark from the seaside is amazing. In the far north of Germany the Flensburg Fjord, occasionally known as the Flensburg Firth, forms part of the border between Germany to the south and Denmark to the north stretching 50 kilometers into the Baltic Sea. The photo shows the tiny shipyard at Egernsund on the Danish side of the Fjord. This region is particularly interesting from a cultural-historical point of view. The German-Danish border has been shifted again and again, and it did not reach its final position until 1920. The different cultures have left their mark on both sides of the border. Whilst, in the past, trading of bricks was a significant economic factor and merchant sailing vessels and the chimneys of brickworks characterized the picture of the Fjord, today it is a popular sailing area. The quiet and picturesque scenery has proven a recipe for pure relaxation!
