Full description
Experience the maritime atmosphere of Kiel from a different perspective with a 24-hour ticket for the hop-on and hop-off sightseeing bus. Marvel at the boats in the port from the open-top bus, and travel to the extreme end of the North Sea-Baltic Canal to visit the former fishing village of Kiel-Holtenau. Look at the many sailboats, ferries and freighters in the Kiel Fjord. Due to the natural seawater harbor, the imposing offshore ferries and cruise ships can be seen directly in the city. An informative and live audio commentary will provide you with information about Kiel's history and monuments, as well as interesting facts about the vibrant city along the way. See the distinctive towers of the shipyards and submarine memorial at Laboe from the eastern shore. Journey through the locks of the Kiel Canal, before driving through the former fishing village of Holtenau. Admire the Holtenauer Lighthouse, and get panoramic views of City Hall Tower in the distance. See the tower of the Kiel Opera House and the ruins of Kiel Castle. Return to the city center to walk among the fountains of Hiroshima Park, and discover a former estuary at the Kleinen Kiel.

    Informative tour

    The meeting point was found quickly. The tour started on time. The audio guide worked without any problems. The city tour was informative. The same distance could only be covered on foot in several hours on foot. A diversion had to be driven due to a home game by Holstein Kiel, but the sights are still reached. It is definitely worth booking the tour to get an informative overview of Kiel.

    Geht so

    Da, wo es was zu sehen gibt, war die Straße gesperrt. Der Rest der Strecke ist nicht so interessant.
