About Kiel

Kiel is not only the capital city of the state of Schleswig-Holsteins, but also the biggest city in the north of German that you can reach with one of our buses! Due to the proximity of the famous Kiel Canal and the Kieler Foerde, the beautiful natural harbor with its lake and sea harbor has had a special influence on the development of the city. This can not only be seen from the hustle and bustle at the port and the many beaches but also from the many people waiting for ships where countless of ships and cruises travel to Scandinavia. So when your bus arrives in Kiel, if you want to take a cruise or a trip on one of the ships you should definitely take time to explore the city itself before heading back on your bus home.

Places of Interest in Kiel

Besides its harbor, Kiel also has many attractions and sightseeing opportunities to offer which you should not miss out on seeing in the popular university town. The Hörn Bridge is a spectacular vision for cyclists and pedestrians alike, as the bridge opens to allow ships to sail underneath it before the passersby can use the bridge to cross over the river. At this point in the city you will get a great first impression and overview of the port city after your bus has dropped you off and you can see many of the different attractions of Kiel, such as the Hörn campus or the Church of St. Nicholas. Additionally the bridge is the quickest way to travel from the city center to Norwegenkai, which is situated on the opposite side of Kieler Foerde where there are daily ferries to Oslo. Another pit stop when you are taking a stroll through the city should definitely be the city’s town hall, whose tower has similarities to St. Mark’s Campanile in Venice. A few streets away from the Church of St. Nicholas are many different restaurants that you can pay a visit to before you hop back on your bus to take you home again!
