I'm hoping to spend the summer in Kiel and am quite excited, however I'm finding it really hard to find job hook-ups...anyone have any tips for me? I am from Nova Scotia, Canada and don't know where to begin to look!
RE: Summer Jobs
You better start praying for a miracle, I'm afraid you'll need one.
Unemployment is on a record high in Germany right now, and summer jobs are in high demand.Lots and lots of students are looking for summer jobs and it's getting increasingly difficult to find some.Not being an EU citizen, it's even more difficult for you. If you know any Canadian company doing business in Kiel, try to get a job though them, this will be easier for you.
Travel Tips for Kiel
Take a walk up Holtenau straße, away from town, to get to Holtenau, a lovely area of town that used to be independent of Kiel, but which has now been encompassed by the city. it is a fairly long walk, and you can go via the Höchbrücke or the passenger ferry, both of which afford great views of the canals, and the huge ships that come through.
There's a wonderful lighthouse in Holtenau, as well as a wonderful restaurant, and several Tall ships are usually anchored in the harbour there. It is possible to take a bus there, but i couldn't tell you the number, as i walked everywhere.
Kiel - The city on a fjord
I lived in Kiel for 6 months (March - September 2000). I was there for a research titled "Urban Integration Problem of Turks in Germany: A Case Study in Kiel".
Kiel isa nice city with a population of 235.000 inhabitants located at the North of Germany being the capital city of Schleswig-Holstein.
It used to be base for U-boots in World War II, so was heavily bombed during the war. Now it is known as a weekend-holiday place for people from North Germany with its nice beaches.
