The city of Kiel is the capital and most populous city in the northern German state of Schleswig-Holstein, and is around 90 km to the north of Hamburg. The city's port has become an important port for both commercial and pleasure vessels almost certainly because of its location on the south western shore of the Baltic Sea and to the south east of the Jutland Peninsular in Denmark. Kiel Week, which the city hosts annually, is known the world over and comprises of a number of international regattas. The city was also the host to the sailing events at the 1936 and 1972 Summer Olympics.
The 13th century St Nicholas' Church (Nikolaikirch) is the oldest building in the city which has a sculpture by Ernst Barlach in front of it. The city, which has a number of parks and lakes for visitors to enjoy, especially if they are seeking some peach and tranquillity, is the main shopping destination for the region. Holstenstrabe in the city is one of the longest shopping streets in Germany.
Kiel's busy port has around 50 crossings per week to destinations in Sweden, Denmark and Lithuania. The port has three passenger terminals with a good level of facilities including a number of shops and places to eat.
The city of Oslo is the capital of Norway and is a bit different from many other European cities. Although there are a number of impressive buildings in the city's historical districts of St. Hanshaugen and Frogner, Oslo does not have the architectural gems that other cities have. However, Oslo is a popular place to visit especially amongst those who love the outdoors as it lies next to the Skagerrak Strait and is directly to the south of the green belt area. Known as the North Woods (Nordmarka), hiking and even seasonal skiing are extremely popular here. Visitors should make the most of the Norwegian summer by visiting one of the city's many beaches on the peninsula of Bygdoy area, or take a stroll around the acclaimed Vigeland Sculpture Park. However, if you arrive in the winter, visitors may wish to try their hand at cross-country skiing around the Nordmarka woodlands, or head down to the Holmenkollen Ski Jump and watch one of the regular championships. A recent addition to Oslo is the Nobel Peace Centre, added since this is the city where the Nobel Peace Prize is presented each December.
