Norderfriedrichskoog (Danish: Nørre Frederikskog) is a municipality in the district of Nordfriesland, in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.

Former tax haven[edit]

In the 1990s Norderfriedrichskoog became a popular 0% tax haven, and by 2003 the village, with a population of only 47, was home to over 500 companies, including Deutsche Bank, Eli Lilly and Company, Unilever, Lufthansa and E.On.[2] The tax regime was changed by the federal government in 2004 to enforce a minimum percentage rate, thus removing Norderfriedrichskoog's competitive advantage.
