Description of this region
The Kieler Förde is the approx. 9nm long sea inlet in the southwestern part of the Kieler Bucht. The Kieler Förde is very well marked and fired and therefore navigational day and night possible. However, especially at the approaches of the Kiel Canal and the Friedrichsorter Enge the very strong shipping traffic should be considered. The area is the home port of many water sports enthusiasts from the Kiel area or even from further away. Also for people who come by sea through the Kiel Canal the city is a well-known stopover on their journey to the Baltic Sea. Berths in marinas and harbours can be found close to the centre of Kiel, or even further away depending on your preferences. For the passage through the NOK, you can use the berths provided directly in Holtenau. Explore all harbours, marinas and anchorages in the surroundings of Kiel.
