Laboe with the Naval Memorial and the U-boat U-995 is located at the Firth of Kiel. I didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity to see the insides of a submarine, so we drove over.
The last time I sailed was when I was around 12 years old. It was during a summer break with the grandparents on a sailing course on the Lake Constance. When Kiel marketing approached me with the idea to test a sailing boat city tour I was enthused and confirmed immediately.
The lockage Kiel-Holtenau in the Kiel Canal is a very interesting stop on a tour to Kiel. There is a viewing platform that lets visitors oversee the lockage and it never takes long before the next ship comes into a lock.
The GHOTEL in Kiel, Kiel-Kronshagen more precisely, is about 6 kilometres away from the city centre. We got to spend two relaxing nights in the hotel and two days exploring in Kiel.
