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.
