Welcome to

"Moin!", that's how briefly and succinctly we greet each other here in the north, because as you may know, we are sometimes said to be a little short of words. That's not always true, of course, because we do like to have a chat or two. But let's be honest: Who needs big words when he or she is at, in or on the sea? There's nothing better than sitting on the beach or harbour, enjoying the peace and quiet, and watching the ships go by. Soak up the whole Kiel feeling during your stay!
