Eye of the Wind:
Lübeck (DE) - Kiel (DE)

05 June - 08 June 2017

Board the Eye of the Wind on the trail of the Historic Hanseatic League: from Lubeck to Kiel, both old ports with long history of sea trade. Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

Lübeck is a large port town on the river Trave, close to the Baltic Sea. The city is famous for its old architecture and many tourists visit it each year. Did you know that marzipan was invented here? Discover Lübeck on foot or rent a bicycle to make your way through the medieval streets of the old town. In the old harbor you will find the Lisa von Lübeck, a reconstruction of a Hanseatic 15th century caravel. If you want to escape the city, the nearby Palinger heide is a nice nature park.

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.
