Getting there and around

Kiel is easy to reach by Car, train, bus, ferry, as well as by airplane. If you arrive by plane, the nearest airport with regular flights is Hamburg. You would then take the Kielius bus service which takes to to Kiel central station or directly to your Hotel (with a Kiel combi ticket or the KielExx express bus). If you arrive by train or ferry, you will arrive at the central station or (with the ferries from Gothenburg and Oslo) very near to the center. You can continue your travel by taxi or by public transport. Tickets are available at the bus driver, tickets for multiple trips or a whole week are available at the central bus station and special shops. Some hotels give you a free bus ticket.


Kiel has many hotels in all categories, I can not list them all here, so I will only list a few ones that I know of. If you book a hotel in the downtown area (between the Central Train Station and Alter Markt) it will be easy to get to the University by public transport.
