After driving through Denmark, we did a stop at a historical site in Germany. We are standing on the old rampart at Haithabu, as the Germans call it. This used to be a major trading port for the vikings, ruled by the Danish king Harold Bluetooth (the same). In Scandinavia it is known as Hedeby, and the Saxons used to call it Schleswig. Schleswig is now the name of the city across the fjord.
