The Schleswig-Holstein region of Germany is in the North. It’s North of Hamburg, and stretches all the way to the Danish border. It’s a place with some of the most beautiful European history, with castles (schloß) everywhere, viking museums (Hedeby), and many many other such historical things.
I had a great time there, as I was with family who toured me around to everything they could think to send me at. I enjoyed this, as it was also a time for me to connect with some family history I had hoped to gather.
