Kiel, Germany


This university city in north-central Germany has been an important port since the 10th century and boasts a rich maritime history. Among shore excursions offered in Kiel are sightseeing tours of the historic city center and visits to Molfsee, an open-air museum that replicates rural life in this part of Germany during the last 150 years. Here, weavers, blacksmiths and potters introduce visitors to their crafts. Excursions beyond Kiel go to Schleswig -- northern Germany's oldest city -- and Gottorf Castle, a magnificent residence that houses an extensive collection of art and historic objects from the 12th century to the present.
