Transport to Cruise Port

by shirley.davey

Can someone tell me what would be the best way to get from Hamburg airport to Kiel & then to the port to pick up a cruise on Sept. 4th. Also any idea of costs would be greatly appreciated.

Catch the S1 suburban train from the airport direct to Hamburg Hauptbahnhof (main station). Airport transport info in English here:

http://www.airport.de/en/subway_suburban_rail.html

Not sure of the fare, but it will not be expensive.

Then catch the direct train to Kiel. Plenty of departure times, many direct trains but some with changes. Standard one-way fare on ICE trains is 27 euro, but it will be less on regional trains (which take just 10 minutes longer than the ICE).

Train times, details and (some) fares in English here:

You don't need to book tickets in advance online, although one or two of the fastest ICE trains have online discount fares of 19 euro (limited in availability). But booking in advance ties you to a particular departure, and does not allow for delays in flight or at the airport..so probably not the best idea just to save 8 euro.

From Kiel Hauptbahnhof you may be able to walk, or take a taxi depending your cruise dock. There are English directions on how to reach each individual dock from the station here:

Travel Tips for Kiel

A German Poem

by Maria250

An manchen Abenden sitzt er da,
wie frueher, summend am Tisch,
unter der Lampe.
Die Tuschfeder schuerft
ueber das Milimeterpapier.
Ruhig zieht sie, unbeirrt,
ihre schwarze Spur.
Manchmal hoert er mir zu,
den Kopf geneigt,
laechelnd, abwesend zeichnet er weiter
an seinem wunderbaren Plan,
den er nicht begreifen kann,
den er niemals vollenden wird.
Ich hoere ihn summen.
-Hans Magnus Enzensberger

Remembrance of Things Past

"The Kiel Canal"

My husband was based in Kiel for two years in the mid 1950's. We attempted to visit and locate his base 20 years later but ran out of time before finding it. So the opportunity to transit the Kiel Canal was an attractive and exciting alternative.
Scenes along the canalside were full of interest - family outings at waterside restaurants, hikers and cyclists packing their tents as they prepared to move on. Ancient buildings and wind farms. It was a fascinating glimpse of life.
