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, cruise passengers can visit a whole host of great vacation attractions, which are all within easy reach of Kiel.
