Kiel is easily accessible on foot. This 2-hour walking tour of the city starts at the Ostseekai (where your ship is docked) and winds its way through the huge ferries docked in the city’s Main Harbour before heading toward Kiel’s Old Town. Here you will see the stately Town Hall, the Kieler Hauptkirche (central church), the city’s Monastery and so-called ‘Schloss’ (palace) – and much more besides. The tour ends at Kiel’s Old Market (a ten minute walk from the Ostseekai), where there is plenty of time to explore more of the city on your own. If you prefer, our guide will happily escort you back to your ship.
