The symposium will be hosted in Kiel. Through its unique location at Kiel Firth, the
capital of Schleswig-Holstein is on the waterfront like no other Baltic
metropolis. Baltic beaches and the cultural scene make the life worth living in
the city centre of Kiel. Therefore it is called KIEL.SAILING CITY.
Kiel has a long shipbuilding and naval tradition but today it is
characterised by its vibrant student scene, laid-back lifestyle and
urban flair. You can sense this atmosphere from the city's beautiful
setting on the Kiel Fjord, its modern and spacious city centre and
Dänische Strasse, a street of late-19th century buildings full of
maritime charm in the heart of Kiel.
And of course the Kiel Week regatta, the largest sailing event in the world and a festival celebrated by millions.
