Best Kiel, Germany excursions
Map of Kiel, Germany
Took train from Kiel station (about 1 mile from cruise port) to Lubeck, which is a very pretty medieval town. The train trip takes about 1:10 to 1;30 depending on the train. The old city is about a 20-minute walk from the train station, so given the short port time, you have about 3 hours available in the town. This is enough time to walk around, peek into the small upscale design stores that occupy many of the street level shops, and sit down at a cafe for a coffee and something to eat. And don't forget to get some marzipan, if that is something you like. BTW, Kiel and Lubeck are both in the German state of Schleswig-Holstein. You can purchase a day card from Deutsche Bahn for unlimited rail travel in any one state beginning at 9AM. A second person can be added for an additional 3 euro. So our total rail costs for the day were less than $40 for two people.

Shitty port. There is one way out and that is the way the passengers gets the baggage. And we just wanted to see the city. But when we wanted to go back to the ship it was a much better way.
I would gice it a zero star raring if I could. It is a commercial port and it is the main port for MSC as the most passengers (Germans) board and disembark there. Nothing of interest to do there. Staying aboard was the best option.

Was sunny & warm. Easy to get to from Hamburg Harbour area looked interesting and definitely more to explore in the city.
