Friedrichstadt old town

This tiny town centre, only 15km from Husum, is protected from the sea by a dike. The attractions here include canals and Dutch stepped gable architecture, with lots for visitors to explore.

Browsing beneath stepped gable roofs
Take a boat trip around the canals and admire the romantic gabled architecture of the old town, then soak up the atmosphere of this pretty little town with a stroll along the canals and around the streets with their historic stepped gable buildings. Many shops here sell regional produce.

Places of interest

Friedrichstadt is small, but perfectly formed. The town's 400-year history has given it much we can admire. This idyllic little town was established in 1621 by Duke Friedrich III and by victims of religious persecution from Holland. Friedrichstadt is the Venice of the North, dotted with lots of pretty gabled houses and romantic canals, just like in Amsterdam.

Here in Friedrichstadt, history and tradition are cherished and protected. The Alte Münze museum preserves the history of the period when the town was first established. Visitors to the carpentry museum can learn lots about the history of the trade. And it's not all theory: you can also see traditional tools and machines in use.
