Could somebody provide me with a link or pictures of the oldest sword/axe to have been found in Northern Germany,specifically around the Schleswig-Holstein region?
Thank you.

I don't know about Schleswig-Holstein specifically, but these are from South Jutland in Denmark, which borders Schleswig-Holstein. They are from Hjortspring Mose and are the oldest I can think of.

I didnt find a Sword or an Axe, but i did find the oldest Spear found in Schöningen, Germany.

Oh wait. For some reason I was thinking only in the Iron Age context. There are Bronze Age swords in the area too... I'll get back to you on that one.
