Later Kiel would be named as the capital of Schleswig-Holstein in 1848, when it’s primarily German population rebelled against the rule of the Danish king. When Prussia marched to war throughout the 1860s, Schleswig-Holstein and Kiel would then be incorporated into Germany and become the undisputed centre of its shipbuilding.

It was in Kiel, too, that the death knell of the German Empire would sound at the end of World War One. Sailors in the city’s shipyards – refusing to throw themselves into one last suicidal conflict with the British – mutinied in early November of 1918, starting a chain reaction that would topple the kaiser and cause the collapse of the German monarchy.

Today Kiel is a seaside metropolis. Mighty ferries and cruise liners from Scandinavia and the Baltic sail in and out of her ports; great ships are constructed in her state-of-the-art shipyards; holidaymakers dot the sands of her beaches; and a vibrant cultural scene spills out onto the wharves and waterfront.

Let us help you discover all that this Baltic pearl and its surrounding cities have to offer with our extensive array of tours…

This shore excursion is adjusted to each ship’s docking times and starts promptly after your vessel’s arrival, returning with plenty of time to spare before its departure. Our expert team has been organizing these tours for nearly a decade. We have never missed a cruise ship’s departure and imparted our knowledge and enthusiasm for our unique and beautiful city to thousands of satisfied passengers!

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.

On our private tour we will custom tailor your visit to your exact specifications. You can make all the decisions where to stop and where to spend your time. We can also organize tickets for and/or private tours of museums, palaces or galleries upon request.
