The keel line starts at the Seeburg (Kiel) behind the Ostseekai (formerly: Oslo-Kai). Until 2014 it ended at Blücherbrücke, where the Gorch Fock used to be. The keel line ends since 2014 in the Kiel-Wik district. It is lined on the land side by a row of boathouses of rowing clubs, canoeists and sailors, the Helmholtz Center for Ocean Research and the Institute for the World Economy.The waterfront is popular with locals and guests because of the hustle and bustle especially Kiel Week, the uninterrupted view of incoming cruise ships and the very good view of the eastern shore with the shipyards of ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems (TKMS), the former Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft (HDW ), and their large gantry cranes, which are Kiel's landmarks.

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, stalls and live music that attracts guests from all over the world.kiel-travel.de/Regionales/Kiel-Sehenswuerdigkeiten-Highlights/Kiellinie
