In Germany, the city of Kiel lives up to its special position: A city far up north, directly on the Baltic Sea. Where the fjord becomes the sea and the horizon broadens. This offers ideal conditions, not only for water sports enthusiasts and those seeking relaxation, but also for business travellers. The immediate proximity to the Baltic Sea, plenty of sea air and the maritime flair of a port city make Kiel so worth living. Kiel is neither a tranquil little town nor a hectic metropolis, but a relaxing city by the sea - with the vastness of the Baltic Sea, the cityscape has continued to grow steadily in the recent years taking with it a lot of tradition.
Even off the shore, Kiel has a lot to offer: theaters, museums, galleries, as well as a multi-faceted gastronomy and event scene makes the city also the cultural center of Schleswig-Holstein. Every year Kieler Woche celebrates the largest summer festival in northern Europe as well as the largest sailing event in the world.
