The Kiel central train station, also known as the Kiel Hauptbahnhof, is located in the northern part of the city. South of the Kiel central train station is the Sophienhof cultural quarter, a beautiful two-story building that houses restaurants, a library, and more. Many more attractions and landmarks are nearby or easy to reach with your rent a car. Drive to Holsten Street, one of the longest shopping streets in Germany. Or check out spectacular landmarks like the 13th century St. Nikolaus Church or the exhibitions at the Stadt-und Schifffahrts museum.
