Fjord Sites

The Förde ferry line F1 takes you to the pretty Förde villages of Mönkeberg and Heikendorf, from where you have a great view of the passing ships on the Kiel Fjord, and to Kiel. Relax in one of the family-friendly beach bays, treat yourself to an ice cream or enjoy a delicious fish roll directly from the cutter in the fishing port of Heikendorf. The tourist information office in Heikendorf will be happy to provide you with information about other excursion destinations.


If you take the ferry to Mönkeberg, you will land at three small, family-friendly beach bays that invite you to swim. Behind the beach bays lies the idyllic marina with its tiny lighthouse, the "Julius Tower". If you follow the Fjord Hiking Trail, you can walk along the fjord via Kitzeberg and Heikendorf to Laboe.

Baltic resort Heikendorf

Only a ferry ride away from the city of Kiel, on the sunny side of the fjord, the Baltic seaside resort Heikendorf awaits you. The most beautiful spots are strung along the shoreline like pearls on a string: the sun terrace on the beach, the pier at the fishing port or the submarine memorial on a headland at the narrowest point of the Fjord.


This fjord town radiates Olympic flair! Schilksee is a district in the north of Kiel and is an absolute sailing hotspot. The sailing harbor was created in the course of the sailing competitions of the Olympic Games in 1972 and is one of the largest sailing harbors on the German east coast.


The charming atmosphere of the former fishing village has been preserved to this day and will captivate you with the fishing pier, the harbor, the lighthouse, the steep coast, the bathing beach, the newly designed beach promenade and a diverse gastronomic scene.


At this place you can immerse yourself in naval history. Visit the submarine museum, where you can admire an original submarine from the inside and outside. Or stroll along the promenade and stop at one of the nice restaurants.


Falckensteiner Strand, Pries village, fortress or district center: In Pries-Friedrichsort you can unwind, experience something and find something special. Enjoy nature with a walk, a bike ride, climbing or water sports or visit open-air festivals such as the festival on the small beach or the fortress summer. 


Situated on the Kiel Fjord, the maritime district of Holtenau combines historical significance with incomparable charm. Stroll along the Tiessenkai and take a look at the unique historic tall ships. Visit the impressive lock system of the Kiel Canal or stroll along the waterfront promenade.
