  • Rheinschiffer ⚓

    Arnis is the smallest city in Germany. In Fährhaus you can eat delicious fish dishes are also cheap. Beer, of course Flensburger, what else? Worth seeing is the small Schiffer church. Here hang three or four models of the ship from the ceiling, very beautiful.
    Unfortunately one of them was mopped years ago. Anyone who comes to herring fishing should pick up his fishing permit at the mayor's office here. Here is much cheaper than in Kappeln and of course there is synonymous.

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