Stad Amsterdam:
Kiel - IJmuiden

11 October - 18 October 2015

Kiel has a reputation of being the sailing capital of Germany. Kiel is located at the Kieler Fjord which is 17 kilometers long and flows into the Baltic Sea. Stad Amsterdam will take you over the Baltic Sea along several Danish islands. Next we will be passing the imposing Great Belt Bridge, a suspension bridge of 65 meters height which consists of several parts and a total length of 18 kilometers. The journey will continue through the Kattegat along the Danish isles of Anholt and Laeso to finally arrive, via Skagerrak, at the North Sea after passing Denmark’s northernmost town Skagen. During the final part of your journey you will be sailing along the west coast of Denmark characterized by countless bays, straits and inlets. At the Wadden Sea area the landscape tends to look more and more Dutch with numerous polders. Open to all ages, minimum age 15 years.
