A strategic location to visit a whole host of great holiday attractions

Kiel is a city in northern Germany located on the Baltic Sea. The city was the country’s main naval base until after the Second World War.

Kiel is famous for sailing events; each year the city hosts ‘Kieler Woche’, a series of sailing regattas. Thanks to its strategic location, our cruise guests can visit a whole host of great attractions, which are all within easy reach of Kiel.

Enjoy the best deals on local attractions by joining us on one of our many excursion packages for this area. Opt to visit neighboring Hamburg for example: a relaxed, visitor-friendly German city with a cosmopolitan atmosphere and exciting examples of new urban regeneration.

We’ll visit the main landmarks and the historic district of Speicherstadt before enjoying a traditional lunch. A day trip to Lubeck, with its well-preserved medieval old town makes for a worthwhile visit, to see this unique UNESCO world heritage site.

Families and children will enjoy the Schleswig-Holstein open-air museum in Molfsee, a village reconstruction complete with peasant houses and craftsmen’s workshops, giving a complete picture of life in times gone by.

A romantic day out is guaranteed on our ‘castles and roses’ tour where you can enjoy a beautiful boat ride on a picturesque lake and wander the gardens and grounds of Eutin castle.

So leave your luxury MSC cruise ship in dock for the day and let us introduce you to another great destination along your cruise vacation.
