The municipality of Schwedeneck, Germany, is situated in the very north of the country; the Danish border is only around ninety kilometres away. Around two thousand eight hundred people permanently live in Schwedeneck, which is around twenty kilometres north of Kiel, the capital of Schleswig-Holstein, the northernmost state of Germany. Regular bus services connect the municipality with Kiel. However, the travel time takes around one hour due to the numerous stops on the way to Schwedeneck. In Kiel, you can find train links to any bigger city in Germany. If a train takes too long or you prefer the airplane, the closest airport providing cheap international flights is located in Hamburg.
Due to the excavation of ancient tombs, the history of the municipality can be traced back around four thousand years. The first settlements arose right on the coast, whereas the modern municipality of Schwedeneck was founded as a new union of smaller municipalities in the early twentieth century. Besides tourism, agriculture is the biggest source of income for the local economy.
