Full description
Experience the maritime atmosphere of Kiel from a different perspective with a 24-hour ticket for the hop-on and hop-off sightseeing bus. Marvel at the boats in the port from the open-top bus, and travel to the extreme end of the North Sea-Baltic Canal to visit the former fishing village of Kiel-Holtenau. Look at the many sailboats, ferries and freighters in the Kiel Fjord. Due to the natural seawater harbor, the imposing offshore ferries and cruise ships can be seen directly in the city.

See the distinctive towers of the shipyards and submarine memorial at Laboe from the eastern shore.

    I ride the red bus in every city I visit, because you can learn a lot about the city. Although I have lived in Kiel for many years, the trip was very informative for me and my group. The driver was very nice! We were also lucky with the weather and were able to drive topless. The 90 minutes went by very quickly. Highly recommended.

    Informative tour

    The meeting point was found quickly. The tour started on time. The audio guide worked without any problems. The city tour was informative. The same distance could only be covered on foot in several hours on foot. A diversion had to be driven due to a home game by Holstein Kiel, but the sights are still reached. It is definitely worth booking the tour to get an informative overview of Kiel.

    The bus ride was very nice and for me, since I had never been to Kiel, it was historically very interesting and also, the city was very lively and very beautiful
