Please note the following changes

General accreditation is not possible this year. Accreditation is exclusively for reporting on the sailing competitions in Kiel-Schilksee. 

Press IDs can be collected only from the press centre in Schilksee, Regattahaus, 24159 Kiel as from Friday 3 September. When you collect your ID, please present your official press card or editorial assignment, as well as proof of being vaccinated, recovered or tested.

There will be a separate registration procedure for other events during Kieler Woche, like the official opening ceremony. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to contact the City of Kiel's Press and Public Relations Office at  .

Face masks must be worn if you are not in your seat in closed rooms such as in the press centre (Regattahaus), the press working room and the press conference room (Haus der Athleten).

Please also note that you need to record your contact details via the luca app or on a paper form in the event area in Schilksee.

In addition to the most important safety requirements, the following points must also be observed:

  3. Mouth and nose protection: Must always be worn on the event area. Please ensure that it is put on and taken off correctly and that it is worn correctly with complete coverage of mouth and nose.
  4. Hand disinfection: Basically before and after every use of shared equipment (focus on broadcast technology). Hand disinfectants must be rubbed into dry hands and must not be rinsed with water afterwards.
  5. Working on the event area in accordance with the hygiene regulations

Voraussetzung für die Ausgabe von Presse-Kennkarten, Eintrittskarten, Einladungen etc. ist die Akkreditierung. Diese erhalten nur hauptberuflich tätige Journalist*innen gegen Vorlage des offiziellen Presseausweises oder Redaktionsauftrages.

Die Akkreditierung ist ausschließlich online möglich. (Beginn 6. Mai 2019)


Bitte weisen Sie sich beim Abholen der Presse-Kennkarte aus. Die Presse-Kennkarte verpflichtet die verschiedenen Veranstalter nicht, den Journalist*innen Sonderrechte einzuräumen und ersetzt auch nicht den offiziellen Presseausweis.
