Glücksburg is the northernmost castle in Germany. It was built in 1582 in the middle of a lake in the city of the same name. Over the centuries it was one of the most important family seats in Northern Germany. Here lived Dukes of Schleswig-Holstein and, occasionally, the Danish kings.

Despite the fact that the castle is located in the middle of the lake, it has a basement due to its high foundation. Previously, there were a kitchen, a closet and a prison, now - office space. Around the lake there is a walking trail with the best views. On the island, near the castle, there is a small garden.
