Bike Touring Highlight
When you hear locals talking about the Kiellinie (formerly Hindenburgufer), you are talking about the city's harbor promenade. Located in the district Düsternbrook, it starts directly behind the Ostseekai and ends at the Blücher bridge, the mooring of the Gorch Fock.
The Kiellinie is lined on the land side by a row of boathouses of rowing clubs, canoeists and sailors and the Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences of the University of Kiel. This waterfront promenade is particularly popular for its liveliness and the very good view of the eastern shore. On the other side of the Kiel Fjord you can see from afar the large cranes of the Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft GmbH (HDW), which are considered landmarks Kiel.
Every year is particularly busy here for the Kieler Woche. The annual sailing regatta has meanwhile developed into the world's largest sailing event. But this is not all about sailing: along the keel line there is a big folk festival with stalls, booths and live music that draws in guests from all over the world.kiel-travel.de/Regionales/Kiel-Sehenswuerdigkeiten-Highlights / Kiellinie

Cycling is officially permitted here, but especially on sunny days and / or at the weekend, the keel line is heavily frequented by pedestrians and cyclists, so care should be taken there.
The view of the Kiel Fjord and various gastronomic offers invite you to take short breaks.
