Travel Information

Kiel is easily reachable by car, plane, train, or ferry. Here are some options for public transport.

  • By plane:

    The Hamburg International Airport has excellent connections. When you arrive at Hamburg International Airport, you have to take the "Kielius" bus to Kiel. This airport shuttle bus departs approximately every hour at Hamburg International Airport between terminals 1 and 2 (look for the "Kielius" sign at bus stop B as shown at the airport area map). The ride takes 85 minutes and a one-way ticket costs about € 19 (round-trip € 33). Information about the bus schedule can be found at (there is also an English version). The bus arrives in Kiel at the central bus terminal which is only a few steps away from the main railway station. Go to the railway station and follow the instructions below to proceed to the university. You can also ask the bus driver in Hamburg for a "Kombi-Ticket" which costs € 24.50 (one-way) and includes a taxi inside Kiel. In this case, the driver calls you a taxi at the bus terminal where the "Kielius" bus arrives.

  • By train:

    There are many train connections to Kiel. You can find information about the train schedule and order tickets at:

    At the Kiel main railway station (bus stop "Hauptbahnhof"), you can take the following bus lines to the university which is located at the corner Westring and Olshausenstraße (go off at the bus stop "Universität" or "Universität/Westring"): No. 61/62 (direction to Suchsdorf/Projensdorf), No. 91 (direction to Friedrichsort), No. 81/82 (direction to Botanischer Garten/Universität/Leibnizstr.). Take the bus with the right direction or ask the bus driver!

  • By ferry : A nice way to come to Kiel is by ferry from Sweden or Norway. The ferries arrive almost at the city center. If you are interested in these option, look at the ferry connections to Kiel from Gothenborg (Sweden) or Oslo (Norway). More information about ferry connections to Kiel can be found at the home of the port of Kiel.
