    Arnis is the smallest city in Germany. In the ferry house you can eat delicious fish dishes that are also inexpensive. Beer, Flensburg of course, what else? The small skipper's church is well worth seeing. Here three or four ship models hang from the ceiling, super beautiful. Unfortunately one of them was stolen years ago.

    Anyone who comes here to fish herring should pick up their fishing permit from the mayor's office. It is much cheaper here than in Kappeln and is of course also valid there.

    Arnis is only a political city since 1934. There are no offices and authorities, not even shops!
    But the fact remains, Arnis has the smallest population (+ -300) with the smallest area.
    In itself a very nice village, that unfortunately because of the Schleifähre but the (loud) bikers loved.

    Arnis is known throughout Germany as the smallest town in the country. How does a city with just under 300 inhabitants receive city rights? Originally Arnis, as well as 24 other communities in Schleswig-Holstein end of the 17th century had the status of a so-called "patch". By 1920, all the local communities lost their status and became towns, only Arnis remained a patch. By a carried out in 1934 territorial reform then from the patch Arnis was the city of Arnis.

    Now the small fishing village is especially popular with holidaymakers who are looking for a genuine, maritime ambience. The central axis of the city, the long street, is at the same time probably the most magnificent square in the city, surrounded by capped lime trees and the original fisherman's houses from the 18th century. Especially in Arnis, the sailing port fits into the cityscape. In the winter months, Arnis is also very much in demand by boat owners in the village and several halls, which are used as winter berths. But, not only with the sailboat, but also with the cable ferry you can drive from Arnis from the loop and translate towards Sundsacker / Winnemark in Schwansen.

    Arnis is with less than 300 inhabitants by the number of inhabitants and with 0.45 km ² also by area the smallest city in Germany. It is located in Schleswig-Holstein on a peninsula in the Schlei in the landscape fishing in the district of Schleswig-Flensburg.

    Arnis was founded in 1667 by 65 families from the nearby village of Kappeln on the then uninhabited island in Schlei. This "Exodus to Arnis" was an act of resistance against Detlef von Rumohr, who wanted to press the inhabitants of Kappeln end of 1666 in the serfdom. Its economic prosperity experienced the place in the mid-19th century with 88 merchant ships and over 1000 inhabitants. The original structure of today's city, given by a surveyor of Duke Christian Albrecht of Schleswig-Holstein-Gottorf, still determines the townscape and contributes to the fact that Arnis is popular as a tourist destination

    Arnis is a nice little town, mostly closed to cars and a good starting point for a bike ride along the Schlei.

    Arnis is not only the smallest city in terms of population, almost 300 noses are counted here. Arnis actually only has one street, Lange Strasse.

    Arnis is absolutely worth seeing. A nice hike from here to Kappeln mostly along the loop is also recommended. But the fish restaurants on the fjord are particularly great. Definitely try matjes, no matter what type of serving! 🐟

    The Schleiperle in Arnis offers delicious small dishes, a beautiful ambience and a great view of the Schlei. Wednesday is a day of rest, otherwise it is always worth a bike trip!
