Cycling in Kiel on the Kiel Fjord

Kiel is considered one of the most bicycle-friendly cities in Germany. This is due on the one hand to the well-developed bike paths in the state capital and on the other hand to the successful implementation of the public bike rental system, the SoprottenFlotte.  

The various bicycle routes in Kiel's inner city area allow cyclists to get from A to B quickly and safely. All parts of the city and beaches can be easily reached by bike, and the Förde steamers always have room for bikes if things need to move a little faster.

Bicycle tours

So that you can enjoy your vacation from the first day, we have compiled the most beautiful and popular cycling tours along the fjord for you.


The Baltic Coast Cycle Route

The Baltic Coast Cycle Route is considered one of the most popular in Germany. A fascinating, varied coastal landscape stretches for 430 kilometers.

On the way to Kiel Bay, the artist museum in Heikendorf, the submarine in Laboe and Kiel Harbor are waiting to be discovered by you!
