IntroductionFlensburg lies right on the Danish-German border and as such is served by connections from both countries. Esjberg port is very convenient for those choosing to arrive in the area by ferry from Harwich in the UK, with Flensburg only approximately 2 hours away. From other Germany towns and cities, there are also good rail connections including overnight trains (City Night Line CNL)to destinations including Basel in Switzerland. If arriving by car, the A7 provides easy access.
The station itself lies in the south of the city centre approximately 1km away from the main hub to the west of the port. To the east of the port is the Volkspark (Peoples' Park), Youth Hostel and other tourist accommodation.
