Germany: Kiel

On Tuesday I got two postcards: one from Hong Kong and one from Germany. The postcard from Germany comes from Schleswig-Holstein’s capital Kiel. I got the postcard some weeks ago in a cover and then I send it to Berlin to get a special postmark.

Kiel is located on the Baltic Sea and is the endpoint of the Kiel Canal (Nord-Ostsee-Kanal). The city is Germany’s northernmost big town and thirtieth largest city in Germany. In Kiel is also a important naval base of the German Navy.



Stamp:
Janosch-sailing boat (from set of two) (issued 01-03-2013)
and a great special postmark celebrating the Kiel Week
