The Kieler Woche traditionally concludes on the last Sunday with the Kieler Woche closing fireworks display, the starry sky over Kiel. Be enchanted aboard the Albert Johannes and experience the fireworks on the water surrounded by countless other sailing ships.

We start at 19:30 with a welcome drink and then set sail for the Baltic Sea. You will sail into the sunset and enjoy the tranquillity on the water with an evening snack. The ship returns on time and sails back to the city centre , where around 11pm the fireworks begin, accompanied by music. As the sky darkens again, the sound of hundreds of ship horns will bring Kieler Woche 2024 to a final close and the ship will take you back to safe harbour.

Kieler Woche

No week is like this. For 9 days, the Kieler Woche combines the world’s biggest sailing event with Northern Europe’s biggest summer festival. That promises cultural highlights and fun parties throughout the city – all open air!

The maritime highlight is the Windjammer parade with around 100 traditional ships. Barges, brigs, and schooners then sail – usually with the largest Windjammer in front – out of Kiel’s fjord. During the Kieler Woche, however, a small parade takes place each time. We offer various day and evening tours for groups of 20 people or more. Finally, the Kieler Woche is traditionally concluded on the last Sunday with a big fireworks display.

The concept for the Kieler Woche was conceived as early as 1882. Back then, however, the main focus was on the sailing races. Since the end of the Second World War, the aim of the modern Kieler Woche was and is, “to improve communication between the world’s peoples and make a contribution to peace and friendship.”

The Kieler Woche will take place in and around the Kieler Fjord from 22 to 30 June 2024!
