Today we celebrated Deb's birthday in Kiel, another German port. Because it was an important port during the second world war, it was comprehensively bombed so the “old town” no longer exists. All of the buildings in what was the old town originally established in 1230, were rebuilt in the 1950'sincluding the very impressive church of St. Nikolai.
It is the access point for Hamburg, several hours away so like Berlin, we didn't go. Hamburg needs much more than several hours.There seems to be a Kyle connection in the city in that there is a Tom Kyle brauhaus (beer house) right in the centre and
the name of the city in old German is Kyl.
We also got to sit in one of those ridiculous beach chairs we saw so many of on the beach at Warnemunde.
Tomorrow we will be in Denmark at Arrhus.
