    The Kieler Förde (Danish Kiel Fjord and Kielerfjorden) is a 17 km long, narrow fjord on the Baltic Sea that was created by glacier movements in the last ice age. It lies between the landscapes of Dänischer Wohld in the west and Wagrien in the east and extends from its southern end, the Hörn next to the city center of Kiel, to the outer fjord, which merges into the Bay of Kiel. At the "Friedrichsorter Enge" the fjord, which forms a natural deep-water harbour, is only one kilometer wide and was formerly secured by Friedrichsort Fortress.At Neumühlen-Dietrichsdorf on the east bank, the river Schwentine flows into the fjord. In Kiel-Holtenau on the west bank are the locks of the Kiel Canal (NOK; international name Kiel Canal, until 1948 in Germany Kaiser Wilhelm Canal). The world's busiest artificial waterway connects the North Sea (Elb estuary) with the Baltic Sea and saves international shipping the up to 800 km longer route around the Jutland peninsula through Skagerrak and Kattegat. In 2012, 34,879 ships (33,522 in 2011) passed the canal and fjord.de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kieler_F%C3%B6rde

    At the end of the fjord you are in Kiel. The ships go to the city center.
