Schleswig-Holstein has remained a German state since 160. It is bordered by two seas, the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. The people of ths sparsely populated state (approximately 3,000,000) are very diverse. The dialect of the region is referred to as Low German, and Danish is also spoke in areas of the state. An ethnic group called the Frisians live on the state's western coast and outlying islands.
Tourist attractions in Schleswig-Holstein include the Wattenmeer National Park on Sylt Island, the hanseatic town of Lubeck with its Holstein Gate built in the thirteenth century, the beaches on Eiderstedt Peninsula and the harbor at Travemunde.
