The landscape Fishing (Danish: Angel, Latin: Anglia ), is located between the Flensburg Fjord (Danish: Flensborg Fjord ) and the Schlei (Danish: Slien ) in present-day district of Schleswig -Flensburg (Danish: Slesvig - Flensborg amt ) in the northeast of Schleswig -Holstein. Fishing presented at no time a political unit dar. Nevertheless, the landscape is for many residents a sense of identity size. Were first mentioned in the Angli n in the year 98 AD by Tacitus in his Germania ethnography.

The people call themselves Fishing Angelner or Angeliter (Danish: angelboer ).

The name of the landscape from the Germanic tribe of the fishing back, which ( among other things) in the landscape fishing was resident ( the then fishing should have been significantly larger). Cultic center seems Thorsberger Moor to have been - it indicates not only the name that perhaps arose only in Danish time, but also numerous archaeological finds, of which a large part of which dates from the Roman Empire. From about 400 AD a large part of the fishing wandered among others from to Britain and settled there among other things in East Anglia. King Offa is the great legendary figure of the people of fishing.


Cemeteries are in Sörup ( 1375 buried ), Husby ( 1360 ) and Suederbrarup ( 1234). These 4,000 men graves are marked by a small number of very modest grave goods. The number of women's graves fields is much lower. However, more and also much more valuable grave goods were found in them. The special feature of Süderbraruper burial ground is its very long holding time: By 100 AD, the three cemeteries were created; while from about 320 AD, the assignment of the other two cemeteries decreases significantly, these increases in Suederbrarup and continues to the 6th century. The population density was reduced in fishing in the 5th and 6th centuries seem extraordinary; many villages fell into disrepair. A sharp decline in cereal pollen suggests a desolation former fields. Were initially leaving sites with heavy clay soils. As more pollen are found on some locations of the Geest at the same time, it is believed that the climate had changed. Increased rainfall could explain this shift to the sandy Geest areas. Another reason for leaving coastal settlements attacks from the sea are suspected. This first regional Dodge would also explain another phenomenon: It is now considered likely that between the end of the settlement period in today's landscape fishing and the arrival of the Angles in Eastern and Central England and the Saxons in southern England ( = Anglo-Saxons ) up to 100 years have passed. First, the fishing would thus be evaded on the Geest before they all left their homeland.


Apparently the area around 550 was then almost uninhabited. After 600 is Jutes and Danes settled on the peninsula, which even in the names in fishing and in the rest of Schleswig is clear today; so many place names end in -by and syrup, which translated means ' village ' or ' settlement '. Some twenty local or farm names ending in- gaard, which means ' fortified farmstead ' means (compare Danish Gård ). Even today, many Angeliter confess to the Danish ethnic group. However, started in fishing ( as in the rest of Southern Schleswig ) in modern times increasingly the (lower ) spread German language; after 1800 and the Danish fishing was replaced by Germans.

Remains of Germanic corridor boundaries of the Roman imperial period are at more than 50 locations (eg Ausselbeck, community Klappholz ) in the small-scale Gutswäldern known. They consist of earth mounds of 0.2-0.6 m and 4-12 m wide, on slopes and terrace edges ( high balks ). They correspond to those found in Jutland " Oldtidsagre ".

In contrast to the south of the loop located Schwansen fishing is characterized today by small, independent farms. Unlike in Schwansen many farmers of Gutsherrschaft and serfdom were excluded here. An exception is mainly the east fishing. Serfdom was abolished here in 1805. As farmstead layout, the Jutland Geesthardenhaus and after Verkoppelung in the 19th century in the east of the fishing Dreiseithof made ​​out.


Today, the major languages ​​in Fishing High German, Low German ( Schleswigsch ) and Danish. The latter is mainly spoken in the variant of the Sydslesvigdansk. The old Anglo- Danish dialect of Südjütischen died out in the 19th century, but has been preserved in many place names. The Angler Low German - the Angeliter Platt or Platt Angelner - subject to long yet the influence of the Danish and still possesses some peculiarities compared to other variants of Low German. By way of example, the following sentence is often called: De chute Chegend where de chrossen cheelen Cheorchinen Chanz chräsig chut chedeien ( The good area where the big yellow dahlias thrive ). In this sentence, however, is not a low German, but German high - albeit with a regional Low German influence.

The " Petuhtanten " are notorious in the Flensburg area.


The land was formed by the ground and end moraines of the last ice age, mainly due to large glacier tongues ausschürften the fjords. Here are also the most endorheic valleys between the hills, the mire over time, and some through by streams lakes. The hills between Husby and Kappeln represents the watershed between the Baltic and North Sea is to the east flowing small wetlands in the nearby Baltic Sea or one of its inlets, while the west such as the treene 60 kms to Friedrichstadt and then over the Eider in the North Sea flows.

The landscape is, although strongly influenced farmland, fanned by the gentle and harmonious relief, water and in many areas a well pronounced kink network. The proportion of forest is relatively low at 5%. The hill country with its winding roads is frequently interrupted by smaller beech forests, so that it acts as a natural park.

Due fertile Geschiebelehme the landscape is predominantly arable land. The peat soils of the lowlands and valleys are indeed largely ameliorated and have also been taken under arable use, but the proportion of grasslands about 20 %.

The land is hilly with heights of 60-70 m above sea level. NN. The highest elevation fishing is not, as is often assumed, the Scheersberg (71 m), on whose top there was an old Germanic Thingstätte, but the Höckeberg in Freienwill with 82 m.

In addition to the communities shown here but at least these are also the parts of Flensburg Flensburg Fjord east of the fishing region, because in 1100 was created by expulsions from the village Adelby the settlement of St. John at the end of the Flensburg Fjord. This new settlement grew and the old settlement was smaller. In this way, a younger part of the Husbyharde was created, which later with yet another founded settlement on the western shore of the fjord, namely Saint Nicholas, Saint Mary and Saint Gertrude, grew together, making Flensburg was born. Over time, the city also continued to grow long on the eastern shore and so were gradually places such as Mürwik that had previously belonged to the parish Adelby incorporated. So the parish Adelby became smaller and smaller until the now shrunken Altdorf Adelby, was also eventually incorporated in the core only consisting of the St. John's Church Adelby, the cemetery and a few fields in 1974. Flensburg is thus at the periphery of fishing.


Fishing is known for its livestock and its special breeds. So come the angler beef and the Angeln Saddleback pig out fishing. The trade routes of Angeliter farmers to Ochsenweg and to markets in Flensburg and Schleswig were called Angelbowege (Danish angelbo Angeliter ). The best-known processor of the meat industry is the Böklunder Plumrose Group, headquartered in Böklund with another plant in Satrup (brand: Redlefsen ).


Important source of income are the attractive tourist coasts of the Baltic Sea and the loop with its beach tourism and nautical tourism. Tourist important also is the Tolk-Schau a family theme park in Tolk and Angelner steam railway museum with its stretch of Kappeln after Suederbrarup.

The Brårup market, which takes place in Suederbrarup on the last weekend in July, is the largest rural fair in Schleswig -Holstein. He was first mentioned in 1593 and in 1993 celebrated its 400th anniversary.

On the same track and the local train between Hamburg and Flensburg with direct connection reversed to the Danish IC network, which was extended in December 2010 to Flensburg. Across fishing leads the regional railway Flensburg- Kiel railway stations Husby, Sörup and Suederbrarup every hour. From Schleswig, Flensburg Kappeln and operated from a narrow bus VKSF the traffic operations of the district Schleswig / Flensburg Angelner communities.


At the international road network Fishing with the Federal Highway 7 / E 45 and the connection points Schleswig- Schuby and Tarp is connected. Across fishing open up the federal highways 201 and 199 of the countryside.

From the motorway junction 5 of the A 7, Schleswig / Schuby the federal highway 201 forms Schleswiger northern bypass. The first village is again crossed by the federal highway 201 is Grumby. Between Schleswig and Grumby is located in the village Tolk amusement park Tolk-Schau. After that, you can still drive through Loit, Brebel, Suederbrarup, Dollrottfeld. In Kappeln the federal road ends 201

Widespread finds it especially on flags with the national colors of Schleswig-Holstein and jewelry dishes. It was of H.N.A.
