The Flensburg Fjord, occasionally known as the Flensburg Firth forms in the far north of Germany part of the border between Germany to the south and Denmark to the north stretching 50 kilometers into the Baltic Sea. Its waters are bordered by areas with an unique history. In 1920 a referendum in North and Central Schleswig resulted in the restoration of North Schleswig to Denmark, and the border between Denmark and Germany has remained undisturbed in the middle of Flensburg Fjord ever since.
