Kiel Travel Guide

Kiel is the capital and largest city in Schleswig-Holstein. Almost completely destroyed in WWII, Kiel is of limited interest to tourists.

Attractions include the Maritime Museum, where three historic ships are moored, and the Aquarium, whose seals are quite popular with kids. The Olympic sailing competitions of the 1936 and the 1972 Summer Olympics were held in Kiel.
