From Kiel to the World

In its 140th year, Kieler Woche will take place from 4 to 12  September, again concentrating on its core: Sailing.

An extraordinary, international atmosphere. One of the largest sailing events in the world. Regatta sailing at the highest level. Unbeatable class diversity. This is Kiel Week.

From Kiel to the World

In its 139th year, Kieler Woche will focus on its roots again. From 5 to 13 September, the sport of sailing - and with it the historical foundation of Kieler Woche - moves into the centre of attention. And if possible, just a little more.

We are looking forward to the times, when - hopefully next year - around 2.000 events in areas of culture, sailing, summer festival, entertainment, science, politics, industry and sport will come together again to form a maritime symphony.

World's biggest Sailing Event


The postponement to September has an impact on the sailing part of Kieler Woche. Numerous classes had already placed their championships in the autumn, which now overlap with Kieler Woche. "We will provide the framework for a top-class event," promises Dirk Ramhorst, Head of Organization of Organizations of the Kiel Week regattas.

All classes and sailors are continuously informed about the current planning and the feedback is characterized by mutual trust in the event.
