Two historically significant sites, Haithabu and Schleswig, are located at the inner end of the Schlei. The excavated remains of both historical distribution centres are located in the Archaeological State Museum in Schleswig. Haithabu was populated from the 8th to the middle of the 11th century, with Schleswig emerging close by during the second half of the 11th century.
