Water is the dominant feature of this city by the sea and you can feel, see and breathe the maritime influence everywhere you go - along the Kiel Fjord, around the port or amidst the iconic container cranes of the shipyards, which are among the largest in Europe. The Gorch Fock, a well-travelled training ship and a star attraction at international sailing events, is as much part of the cityscape as the huge ferries docked at Skandinavienkai (Scandinavia quay). Northbound ships launch from docks situated just a few minutes' walk from the central station, while the elegant sea-going cruise liners depart from the Cruise Terminal in its central location at Ostseekai (Baltic sea quay).
