The city's cultural landscape is diverse and multifaceted! As the state capital and with over 30,000 students at three universities, Kiel offers visitors much more than the sea and beaches. The rich cultural offer includes over 35 museums and galleries, 7 theatres, 1 opera house, 5 cinemas and more than 10 venues with readings, concerts, exhibitions and events. Choose your own personal highlight. Spend time on the beach and on the sea during the day and enjoy a concert in the evening. Let yourself be inspired!

"From Kiel we wanted to renew the theatre, from the theatre we wanted to renew the world."
