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.
The name Delfzijl means ‘sluice of the Delf’. The city is located in the north-east Netherlands and is home to the fifth largest port of this maritime country. Delfzijl is a picturesque place and taking a walk through its streets will certainly be rewarding. The unique Hanging Kitchens, and – of course – a windmill – are some of the architectural attractions, while the Muzeeaquarium hosts a few different collections.
