Kiel, Germany
Kiel is approximately 56 miles north of Hamburg. Due to its geographic location in the north of Germany, the southeast of the Jutland peninsula, and the southwestern shore of the Baltic Sea, Kiel has become one of the major maritime centers of Germany. The city is known for a variety of international sailing events, including the annual Kiel Week, which is the biggest sailing event in the world. The Olympic sailing competitions of the 1936 and the 1972 Summer Olympics were held in Kiel.

Places of interest in Kiel include the picturesque Friedrichsort cliffs, numerous beaches within the city limits, the promenade along the western shores of the firth, the locks on the Kiel Canal at Kiel-Holtenau, the naval port and quarter, the Botanical Gardens of the Christian Albrecht University, Holstenstrasse – one of the oldest pedestrian precincts in Germany – and the Hörn bridge with its ingenious folding mechanism. There are also many fascinating museums to visit, such as the Maritime Museum on Sartori Quay, the Computer Museum, the Kunsthalle art gallery with its collection of antiquities and the Engineering Museum. The varied arts scene includes Kiel Theater, the Polish Theater and the Philharmonic Orchestra. A popular event in summer is the acclaimed Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, which attracts tens of thousands of visitors. Kiel is also a great destination at other times, maybe because it is the best place to eat kieler sprotten – a local speciality made from sprats.

Kiel has also been one of the traditional homes of the German Navy's Baltic fleet, and continues to be a major high-tech shipbuilding center.


Sailing the Baltic Sea
The Baltic Sea, a brackish nearly landlocked body of water, bounded by the Scandinavian Peninsula, the mainland of Northern Europe, Eastern Europe and Central Europe, and the Danish islands. It drains into the Kattegat by way of the Öresund, the Great Belt and the Little Belt. The Kattegat continues through the Skagerrak into the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. The Baltic Sea is artificially linked to the White Sea by the White Sea Canal and to the North Sea by the Kiel Canal.
