    Arnis is the smallest city in Germany in terms of population (just under 300) and also in terms of area (0.45 square kilometers). The city was founded in 1667 when 65 families from Kappeln moved to the then uninhabited island in the Schlei to protest against serfdom.

    The cityscape has hardly changed for many decades, which is why the city has retained the charm of its heyday in the 19th century.

    With less than 300 inhabitants, Arnis is the smallest city in Germany in terms of population and 0.45 km² in area. It is located in Schleswig-Holstein on a peninsula in the Schlei in the fishing district of Schleswig-Flensburg.

    Arnis was founded in 1667 by 65 families from the nearby town of Kappeln on the then uninhabited island in the Schlei. This "move to Arnis" was an act of resistance against Detlef von Rumohr, who wanted to force the residents of Kappeln into serfdom at the end of 1666. The town experienced its economic heyday in the middle of the 19th century with 88 merchant ships and over 1000 inhabitants. The original layout of today's city, determined by a land surveyor by Duke Christian Albrecht of Schleswig-Holstein-Gottorf, still determines the townscape and contributes to the fact that Arnis is popular as a tourist destination

    With around 300 inhabitants, it is probably the smallest city in Germany, not just in terms of area.

    In ARNIS it pays to "have time", linger and enjoy. It becomes a special experience when you look at details ... the little things along the way.
