Like so much at the Schlei, the name of the fishing settlement in Schleswig comes from the Danish language, because "Holm" means in the Danish language "small island". The spar originated around the year 1,000 and was separated from the mainland by the Holmer Noor until the 20th century. All houses were built directly on the water to ensure optimal fish processing. Today, the Holm is a district of the city of Schleswig and connected to the mainland. The central part of the quarter today is a small cemetery with its own chapel, around which the individual fishermen's houses are grouped.

The Holm is a fishing district in Schleswig on the edge of the old town. The district was built around the year 1000, when the settlement was still on an island in the loop. Since the 20th century, the spar is connected to land. The central part of the district is a small cemetery with its own chapel, around which the individual fishermen's houses are grouped.
Since 1480 it was only allowed fishermen from the spar to fish on the loop between Arnis and Schleswig. This was confirmed in the Schleibrief by King Christian I. After the Thirty Years' War, the Guild of Holmer Guilding was founded by the Holm fishermen in 1650 to help one another in times of war and plague. The Holmer Beliebung exists today.
At that time, as now, residents of the Holms work as fishermen. In order to document the history of the neighborhood for posterity, the Holm Museum was founded in 1992 as part of the Schleswig City Museum.
