Arriving in Kiel by ship seems appropriate, given its long shipbuilding and naval traditions. In fact today it is one of Germany's most visited cities, due to an enormously popular annual sailing regatta. This modern and spacious city is strikingly set on the Kiel Fjord, with a charming street of late 19th century buildings at its heart. For a glimpse of historic countryside life, investigate the Schleswig-Holstein Open Air Museum, a collection of rustic farms and country homes dating from the 16th through 19th centuries. Here local craftsmen demonstrate traditional skills in the smithy, potter's workshop, old loom, and mill, and tantalizing scents arise from the old-fashioned bakery and smoke house.
