Schleswig is a town in the northeastern part of Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. It is the capital of the Kreis (district) Schleswig-Flensburg.
The city center is dominated by Schleswig Cathedral (1134), with the tomb of King Frederick I of Denmark. On the other side of the Schlei lake is the historic site of Hedeby. It was the second largest Nordic city during the Viking Age, after Uppåkra in southern Sweden. The city was completely destroyed in 1066. Today a small museum can be found there.
