About the city

Kiel is an atmospheric place on the coast of the Baltic Sea in the northern part of the country. Kiel is the largest city and capital of Schleswig-Holstein, an international seaport where cruise liners arrive. Ferries depart from the city to Sweden and Norway.

The city has a long tradition of shipbuilding and the navy, but today it is characterized by vibrant student life, a laid-back lifestyle and an urban style. Visitors to the city can experience this both in the modern city centre and on Danische Straße, a street full of maritime charm with 19th-century buildings. The oldest building in the city is the 13th-century St. Nicholas Church, which has a sculpture by Ernst Barlach in front of it. In addition, Kiel has several museums, including zoological, geological, historical, fine arts, industrial and military museums.

It is a significant host city for the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, one of the world's largest classical music festivals. The city also hosts the most critical event in the world of sailing, a big summer festival in northern Germany. The town has a magnificent Old Botanical Garden with its unique exotic old trees surrounding the University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein Kiel. Breathtaking views of the dam and the Kiel Bay only contribute to patients' rapid recovery and rehabilitation.

Kiel is a quiet city by the sea, enjoying the vast expanses of the Baltic Sea and the short distances of a compact city with great tradition and a city image that has been constantly developed over the years. Kiel offers a wide range of excellent restaurants and shops. The city is a perfect choice for both active and peaceful holidays.
