Kiel Overview

For the people who are interrested in the sea and famouse habors. Here is the travel advice. Go and visit this beautiful city on the Baltic Sea. Its name is close to the legends and tales of the vikings and ends with the record braking event that is held every year in the habour.

The name is ocean sea race and starts and ends in Kiel. Its the biggest race and attracs over 2 million people during this week. The whole event is called "Kieler Woche" ("Kiel week") and takes place during the last week in June.

For the rest of the charme and flair of the country side i can say. Wonderfull and quite environment. Just the best for hiking, riding the bike and chill. The air is so clean and salty what every doctor says is very good for the health.

Kiel is located on a deep bay (Kieler Förde) which forms a natural harbour. In recent years large terminals for cruise ships and ferries havebeen built which have changed the face of the inner port totally.

For international shipping trade Kiel is important as the northeastern entry to Nord-Ostsee-Kanal, which in English is even called Kiel Canal. This is one of the busiest ship routes in the world. It connects Baltic Sea and North Sea and saves ships the long and often stormy way round Denmark.
