Flensburg was chartered in 1284 and acquired commercial importance in the 16th cent. In 1867 it passed from the Danish crown to Prussia. In a 1920 plebiscite, the city voted to remain a part of Germany. During World War II it was heavily bombed and lost its large merchant fleet. There is a municipal museum in the city.
