City trip and beach experience

Kiel offers numerous possibilities and a fascinating variety. Water is the distinctive element. The charming maritime city directly on the fjord offers a delightful view across the harbour, with large ships and streamlined yachts as well as the ocean with beautiful beaches, and invites you to discover both.

There are a variety of attractions to discover and cultural highlights that are waiting to be enjoyed; the opportunity to relax along one of the beautiful beaches of the surrounding area or simply enjoy an atmospheric sluice walk along Kiel Canal.

When visiting the city of Kiel, international events such as the “Kieler Woche” (Kiel Week) sailing event or the high-calibre concerts of the Schleswig-Holstein music festival add additional appeal.

Come and be inspired by the large variety of recreational opportunities that we will be offering you in the following!

On your saddles... ready, steady, go!

After a substantial and invigorating breakfast, it’s time to saddle up. First, cycle along the western bank of the river towards the fjord. Enjoy the fresh sea air and the sight of passing cruise liners as well as the hustle and bustle of the submarine shipyard on the opposite side of the fjord. Listen to the sound of the waves. You can get a delicious ice cream or a small refreshment, for example, in the “Seebar” directly on the Kiellinie promenade, where you can enjoy the splendid view of the water and the passing clouds directly on a jetty.

Along the naval port with its breathtaking ships, the route takes you in the direction of the Kiel Canal. Prepare to be impressed by one of the largest locks in the world during an engaging tour of the lock complex. If you want to ride through some parks and the city itself on the way back to the hotel, turn your back on the water and drive inland. Here you can discover some inviting cafés and restaurants and make a few more snack stops.

Now that you have quite a few kilometres on the clock, you can put your legs up or drop contentedly into your cosy bed. The next day has more interesting tours lined up for you.
