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

11 June - 16 June 2016

Hoist the sails and set course to the historic German Baltic ports. We will sail along the former shipping routes of the Hanseatic League. Here you will enjoy two eventful maritime festivals at the start and the finish of the Journey. The Wismar Harbour Days will begin at the start and the Kiel Sailing Week at the end of the Journey. In between you will visit the Hanseatic city of Lubeck. On board you will experience the life at sea. Smelt the salt in the air and hear the seagulls scream in the wind.

Ports

Wismar is a harbor on the Baltic Sea with a huge market square, lined with 14th century buildings. Wismar is a popular sailing destination, so expect to find loads of ‘yachties’ here. Go and discover the town on foot and enjoy the vibe of the old harbor. The Nicolaikirche and Kirche of St. Georgen both come highly recommended. Nearby you’ll find rural areas that can be fun to explore. And In the Baltic area a good beach is never far away, so go for a swim or find a place for windsurfing.

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.
