Friedrichstadt Overview

Friedrichstadt is a town in the district of Nordfriesland, in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. It is situated on the river Eider approx. 12 km south of Husum (Husum vacation rentals | Husum travel guide).

Because of the city's location in relation to the river and ocean, several locks, dams, and bridges were built. Tides coming in from the North Sea cause the local river to rise up to 2.1 meters. Two Sielzüge are located around the city, making it an artificial island.

More about the History of Friedrichstadt

It was founded in 1621 by Dutch settlers. Duke Friedrich III of Holstein-Gottorp pursued them to invest capital and knowledge in this region in turn for freedom of their Mennonite and Remonstrant religion and opportunities to reclaim fen and marsh land in the vicinity of the town. While Dutch became an official language, by 1630 many Arminians had already returned to the Netherlands.
