       How to find me?

      Our property is situated along the famous”Gendarmsti”, a path right

      on the coastline beautifully located with a view to “Okseøerne” the two

      islands in Flensborg Fjord.

     Coming from Krusaa you follow the Fjordvejen to Rønshoved -  continue

     Crossing “Munkemøllebroen” and strait on another 300 meters – turn right

     between the road fence going down hill. Turn right again  and you will find

     Knudsmade and the fjord ahead.

    Welcome!
