Sailing City

One of Germany's most important ports for decades, Kiel combines its working industrial center with a rich heritage of music, fine dining, and pleasant scenery. Nearly wiped out during World War II, Kiel was first rebuilt with less-than-stellar postwar architecture. During the 1990s, a revitalization returned large areas of its historic center to their prewar selves. This has reasserted Kiel's place on the circuit of great German cities. A thriving arts scene, both old and new, and a population that loves to enjoy its waterside features, give Kiel small-town charm in a decidedly diverse atmosphere. Make Kiel central to your Germany travel plans using our Germany tour planner.
