    Why Go There?

    Explore the beautiful and unique Dutch Renaissance architecture here in Friedrichstadt, sometimes known as "Little Amsterdam." With its Dutch-style homes and canals, you may forget which country you're in!

    No wonder that there is such a strong Dutch influence here- they actually founded this city in the early 17th century. And just like you can do in the canals of Amsterdam or Venice, you can explore Friedrichstadt on a can tour, or "Grachtenfahrt", and see the city from a different perspective. If you prefer to explore the canals more independently, you can always rent a canoe and row around at your leisure. For information on tours and boat rentals, visit the Tourist Info Center at Am Markt 9, Friedrichstadt. 

    Another must-see is the city museum "Alte Münze". Not only is the building one of the most beautiful examples of Renaissance architecture in all of Schleswig-Holstein, it also houses great exhibitions about the city's history, its religious diversity, and every day life in Friedrichstadt.
