Baltic beaches and the cultural scene make the life worth living in the city centre of Kiel. Through its unique location at Kiel Firth, the capital of Schleswig-Holstein is on the waterfront like no other Baltic metropolis. 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.
