Ports

Kiel is a German port town on the Baltic coast, widely known for its yearly ‘Kiel week’ – the biggest yearly regatta in the world! Many thousands of boats and ships of all kinds and eras take part in the parade. Kiel Week is also a festival, Volksfest and fair as well as a maritime event. But Kiel offers more: a slew of museums (zoological, geological, historical, fine art, industrial, and military museums), a city centre with relaxed atmosphere, and the water and shores of the Kieler Fjord.

Eemshaven is a seaport in the province of Groningen, in the northeast of the Netherlands. When you leave port and go out at sea you are at the Wadden Sea, an UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site. You might spot a seal and you will spot some birds. You can also walk with low tide over the bottom of the sea and see all kinds of marine life. The port of Eemshaven itself is a robust, industrial area. But you can go for a nice walk over the dike, enjoy nature and look over the sea.
