Station 1:

Bridge at the castle garden with best view of cruise ships and the shore power plant

From the highest point of the Schloßgarten Bridge, the big ships can be admired best.
The Port of Kiel's shore power facilities also make cruise ships cleaner!
At the shore power facility at the Ostseekai, the big ships can switch off their engines to avoid air pollution and noise emissions during their berthing time.
In addition to the ecological benefits, the system is also a visual highlight.
Thanks to 12,000 LED lights, the facade shines in ever-changing designs after dark, winning the German Light Design Award.

Enjoy handmade ice cream with a view of the fjord and the passing ships or treat yourself to a portion of hot fries with tasty toppings from the fritters galley.
