Kiel Germany Events
The Kiel International Seapower Symposium (KISS) is a one-day international conference taking place on the banks of the Elbe in Hamburg from October 1 to 2, 2014. Hamburg's largest festival "Am Elbe Shore" celebrates the history of shipbuilding and the development of maritime technologies in Germany and worldwide. During the festival, many exciting excursions are organized, during which participants can visit cultural events dedicated to history and life. In addition, more than 100 ships and many yachts take part in a variety of activities, such as sailing, fishing, sailing schools and sailing competitions, as well as a range of cultural activities.
If you are here for the first time, a short visit is recommended, but if you are an art lover, we strongly recommend a guided tour. Kiel is the art museum of the city of Kiel, and its history can be experienced in the Zoological Museum, one of the oldest museums in Germany, and in the Natural History Museum. For over half a century it has been part of Khel University and also houses a number of museums, including the National Gallery of Art, the Zollverein Museum and the Bauhaus Museum of Contemporary Art.
Also built over a hundred years ago, it is a historic landmark of the city and the most important auditorium here. It is known for remarkable dramas and performances and is also home to Kiel's oldest opera house, the Opera House, one of Germany's most famous opera houses.
This offers the whole family an exciting and interesting experience to enjoy at the largest summer festival in Northern Europe. Kiel Week has developed from a joint sporting event to a legendary folk festival and with over 1.5 million visitors and over 1,000 events is one of the most popular summer festivals in Germany.
Surrounded by the unique nature of the Schleswig-Holstein interior, the open-air performances can be enjoyed in the midst of nature with a wide variety of music, dance, food and entertainment.
For those locals who prefer to take an hour's drive to Hamburg, Kiel also has a number of clubs worth visiting, as well as a variety of restaurants and bars. German and Scandinavian acts can also be seen in the city centre, with some surprisingly good German-Scandinavian acts to be seen. Note: Excursions to Hamburg and Lübeck are part of the supporting programme.
The city centre is home to an established series of concerts featuring a variety of local and international artists as well as international acts. German - Scandinavian bands like the Kiel Symphony Orchestra perform to thousands of spectators on the shores of Lake Constance.
It is quite easy to drive from Kiel to Laboe and take the ferry to Strande and back to Khel. There are ferries that connect Kilne with work, that cross the Forde and at various moorings in Keliel and out again.
The Science Park Kiel is a space where many activities such as TTD workshops are organized. For young travellers aged 17 and over, there is an app (MuseumsCard) that provides information and free admission. This includes a number of opportunities to discover Keliel and its surroundings, as well as a variety of cultural events.
In an old fish auction hall, the Kiel Maritime Museum displays exhibits that tell the maritime history of the city and explore the significance of the harbour, navy, shipyards and sailing. In addition to being the site of a large shipyard, it offers a unique view of Keliel's history as well as a variety of cultural events. As the capital of Schleswig-Holstein, it is no surprise that there are trains that carry passengers to and from many major German cities. The main station of Khel is located in the city centre and directly opposite the Kiel Fjord and offers an extensive travel, restaurant and shopping programme.
The Media Dome is a 360-degree planetarium and theatre in Kiel, located on the campus of the University of Applied Sciences. Eight museums in Kiel have founded a joint initiative called Museen am Meer, in which they bring together all the necessary details on their joint website.
Watersports events can be enjoyed in Kiel, but also in other parts of the country, such as Hamburg, Cologne, Berlin, Hamburg - Stuttgart and Cologne - Hamburg.
Located directly on the Baltic Sea, Kiel, Germany's second largest city with about 1.5 million inhabitants, is one of the most popular destinations in the country and probably best known for its location near the Baltic Sea. There is also the "North-Baltic Canal," which connects the North and Baltic Seas and allows ships not to circumnavigate Denmark. The Kiewit Festival, probably the most famous of all events in Germany and the largest of its kind in North America, is both located in a closer vicinity than the Baltic Sea! Kilo Week is the largest and most prestigious international sailing festival in the world, where championships and regattas are held for a range of classes.
