Holidays to Kiel
Enormous cruise ships and gigantic ferries provide a unique backdrop which is unparalleled in Germany. The old town extends from the port of Kiel which forms the heart of this port city. Here you will find the Sparkassen-Arena, one of the largest event locations in Germany, as well as the shopping arcade Holstenstein. The beginnings of Kiel are located here, as this area was already populated during the 13th century and remained largely intact after World War II. While on a short trip, discover the historic buildings, such as the Nikoali Church, the monastery or the shipping museum and take a deep breath of the maritime air.
The Gaarden neighbourhood will enchant visitors who are travelling to Kiel. This district is shaped by the development of the wharfs, and to this day, many wharf workers live in this area. A walk across the rail bascule bridge leading across the Hörn River is especially recommendable. In Holtenau, there is water where ever you look. The Holtenau Locks, for example, as well as the steam bridges invite you for a visit. Maybe you would like to take a quick trip to Denmark while on your city trip? The district Schilksee is located on the Danish peninsula Wohld. Visit the Olympic Centre or enjoy the wonderful beach in Schilksee.
The state capital of Schleswig-Holstein impresses not only with its marvellous location right on the Baltic Sea but also with city life, as it has much to offer in terms of culture, leisure and events.
The art hall is located right on the Kiel Fjord and offers visitors a look at its own collections and changing exhibitions as well as a number of workshops, concerts and lectures. Anyone who loves city trips and still does not want to do without nature, should plan a visit to the Botanical Garden while on a mini-break. It was founded in the 17th century and is home to an impressive number of plants from the entire world. A visit to the theatre in Kiel is also obligatory while on your city trip. The stage of the theatre is located in a listed, former opera house of the city. The impressive red brick building is noticeable from afar already.
