The city hosts the sailing event ‘Kiel Week’ every year and this is thought to be the biggest of its kind in the world. There are so many places to visit within a short drive of the self catering accommodation in Kiel and more than enough activities to keep you out of mischief for the duration of your stay.

We hired bikes and rode in and out of Kiel, to the beaches at Laboe and also into the countryside. For a change it was easy to self cater since the apartment was very well equipped.The owner was really helpful and we had a wonderful time. We will strongly recommend to friends.
