Information on Kiel:

Kiel is the capital of the northernmost German federal state of Schleswig-Holstein and, with a population of approximately 250,000 inhabitants, is also its largest city. It is situated on the south-western shore of the Baltic Sea, approximately 90 km north of Hamburg. Kiel is well-known for a variety of international sailing events including the annual Kiel Week (Kieler Woche) at the end of June, the world`s largest sailing festival. Kiel can be regarded as a gateway to Scandinavia and the Baltic States since passenger ferries to Sweden, Norway, and Lithuania operate from here. Furthermore, a lot of commercial and cruise traffic passes through the Kiel Canal, the world's busiest artificial waterway.

Information regarding visa requirements can be found on the website of the Federal Foreign Office (http://www.auswaertiges-amt.de/EN), while the tourist information in Kiel (www.kiel-sailing-city.de) provides user-friendly information about touristic Kiel.

 

Travelling to Kiel

By Air

•             Frankfurt airport: When travelling to Kiel via Frankfurt, you might want to continue your journey by train instead of taking an additional flight to Hamburg. Please check Deutsche Bahn (www.bahn.de) for train connections serving the station Frankfurt airport (search for Frankfurt(M)Flughafen).

•             Hamburg airport: Hamburg airport is situated in the north of the city which is why it is not worth travelling into the city center to take the train to Kiel. It is much easier to take the so-called Kielius, a bus travelling between Kiel and Hamburg airport. The Kielius will take you from Terminal 1, Section B of the bus terminal at the airport directly to the main bus station in Kiel. You can purchase your ticket from the bus driver. If you buy a so-called combi-ticket, the bus driver will arrange for a taxi to pick you up at Kiel main bus station and bring you to your hotel. For details on prices and timetables visit www.Kielius.de. Please be aware that the bus driver will only accept cash.

•             It is also possible to fly to Lübeck airport (code: LBC) from some European destinations (www.flughafen-luebeck.de/en/). To get from Lübeck airport to Kiel, it is necessary to take a bus or train to Lübeck main train station first and then a train to Kiel (about one hour travel time).

 

By Train

Kiel main station is located directly in the city center, only a few meters away from the ferry terminals, main bus station and the central taxi station.

Unless you are arriving from the north (Flensburg/Denmark), you are very likely to travel via Hamburg, maybe changing trains there. From Hamburg, trains leave for Kiel at least once an hour. For train timetables please check the Bahn website www.bahn.de (the website is available in more than ten languages). When searching for connections, your destination is "Kiel Hbf".

By Car

Kiel is near to the A7 motorway (Autobahn A7) and is well sign-posted when travelling by car.

•             From the north (Denmark/Flensburg): head south on the A7 motorway and exit onto the A210 to Kiel at “Kreuz Rendsburg”.

•             From the south: head north on the A7 motorway via Hamburg and exit onto the A215 to Kiel at “Dreieck Bordesholm”.

Please be aware that, in general, parking is not free in Kiel. So you may have to pay some Euros per day for parking.
