My husband and I got off the ship and walked around. There wasn’t much to do other than shop. Maybe because it rained when we were there. They have a huge mall nearby. We super enjoyed the Kieler Brewery though.

We walked to the old part of town and ate at the brewery. Excellent. Recommend the bratwurst with mashed potatoes, and saukerkraut.

walked into the city, a lovely place, although not that much there so didn't really spend much time there.

took the HAL Bus to Lubeck-pricey but the only convenient time option, Highly recommend Lubeck for an old German Town with beautiful architecture and easy to walk around on your own

The ship docked at the Boardwalk and Marina. You can have a very nice walking visit on your own on the boardwalk and the city center at 30 minutes walking distance.

Don't be fooled. KIEL ISN'T ANYWHERE NEAR HAMBURG! We wanted to visit the Miniatur Museum in Hamburg, and needed to rent a car to get there. We've driven often on German autobahns, so weren't intimidated by the drive. But billing Kiel as "Hamburg" is very incorrect. So jammed up was the autobahn traffic there were several organized tour buses that were late to the ship by almost two hours! Read Less

We didn't really get a chance to see much of the city, and the tour bus raced through areas that might have been interesting. Our ride out into the country gave us a nice look at surrounding farmland.

Other travellers who went to Hamburg said they were too long on the bus and it was stressful. It would have been preferable if the ship could have docked in Hamburg Read Less

Booked through HAL. Highlight was the very good visit to Minitur Wunderland in Hamburg. Bus ride to and from Hamburg was ho-hum with the tour director serving as a ticket taker and head counter but nothing else.

On our map and literature this port is spelled Kehl (but we are assuming it is the same). We chose the Black Forest area outing. First we were bussed to Gengenbach. It's an incredible, picturesque little town featuring very old structures: a town hall that becomes an advent calendar prior to Christmas, full timber houses, a public baking oven, monestary and more. Then we were bussed to Winzerhof Sester. We saw grapes growing and orchards on the hillsides as we did a short hike in this Black Forest foothills area. When we reached the farm, we were served Schnapps made at the farm and then delicious homemade Black Forest cake with home-pressed apple juice and coffee. The farm had old, well-maintained buildins, deer, rabbits, chickens and beautiful flowers. The farm owners were so hospitable. We loved this excursion! Read Less
