DescriptionKiel is located in the very north of Germany. It is positioned by the sea side (Baltic Sea) and its status as capital of the federal state Schleswig-Holstein, the famous annual sailing and public festival event Kieler Woche and multiple medium sized firms and its big university makes Kiel a melting pot of tourism, sport events, industry, regional politics and education. Kiel is definitely worth a visit. Kiel offers a seaside/ harbour city feeling with stunning views and beautiful beaches in a short distance to the city. Kiel is also visited by two to four cruise ships and its tourists in the summer months everyday. As a city with about 250.000 inhabitants (30 000 of it are students), Kiel is also a very young city which offers all oppurtunities a big city usually does but it has also the charm of a small city. The Local Group of ELSA Kiel exists since nearly 30 years. In the last three years it has become very active, organizes many events and could rise the number of its members from 30 to 250 in three years. Kiel is also known as very funny and openminded in the national ELSA network.
