Kiel Yacht Charter

Aside from being an important maritime center, Kiel, which is situated in the state of Schleswig-Holstein, is also a popular yacht charter destination in northern Germany. This thriving port city is about 90 kilometres off from the northern section of Harmburg and is set on the southeastern portion of the Cimbrian peninsula along the southwestern end of the Baltic Sea.

Kiel is renowned for the large number of sailing regattas that are being held here annually and this include the highly popular Kiel Week Festival, considered as one of the biggest sailing competition worldwide. Suffice it to say, Kiel is an important superyacht charter destination, and seasoned sailors and yachting enthusiasts are more likely to include Kiel in their itinerary every time they spend their holiday in the Baltic.

Kiev, being an important maritime hub, is also noted for its thriving shipbuilding industry and is known to be the home of the busiest artificial channel, the Nord-Ostsee Kanal. During the months of summer and spring, all roads in Kiel lead to its pristine beaches. And while it seems that everything that is great about Kiel is somewhat attached to the waterfront, seasoned sailors and yacht charter enthusiasts are aware that this popular holiday resort is also tops when it comes to dining experiences and shopping opportunities.

Super yachts and cruise liners coming from all points of the world, large ferries going to Scandinavian, bustling shopping malls, pristine beaches and cultural treats – these are what you will experience if you are going to spend your Baltic holiday in Kiel. And because of its location, Kiel is like no other yacht charter destination in the entire Baltic region.

Seasoned sailors and other yacht charter enthusiasts love this Baltic tourist centre for its relatively warm weather, seaside fun and adventure and, of course, diverse yacht charter possibilities. Luxury yachts of various sizes and coming from various parts of the globe drop anchor here, especially during the summer months.

Popular Attractions and Important Destinations

Easily the first thing that will attract your attention is the Kiel Canal, which is considered to be one of the busiest man-made channels. A lot of tourists and yachting enthusiasts walk or ride a bike along its banks to sample the treats and watch the activities on this channel.

Other notable attractions and sights that you should include in your itinerary are the town hall’s iconic tower, which is about 67 metres tall, the Hörn Bridge, the elegant Hindenburgufer promenade, the Gorch Fock, which is used for training in yachting, the Maritime Museum and the St. Nicholas Church.

Kiel is also an ideal destination for yacht charter enthusiasts who are looking for some serious shopping. This bustling seaside resort boasts of several shopping centers and popular markets, and the most notable of which is the Holstenstrasse, a pedestrian alleyway which is lined with an array of shops and boutiques near the town’s railway.

Of course, your holiday in Kiel will not be complete if you don’t sample the delectable local dishes and other gastronomic treats that are served in several fine restaurants and other food venues. One of the top favourites of yacht charter aficionados is the smoked fish that is normally served whole in these local restaurants.
