Silversea Luxury Cruises To Kiel Canal

Kiel Canal

One of the world's great canals, the 60-mile-long Kiel Canal provides a spectacular, water shortcut through Northern Europe. Opened in 1895, following eight years of construction at the hands of 9,000 men, it has been upgraded twice since, to serve the growth of both the ships it can accommodate and the rise in demand. The long waterway links the North Sea with the Baltic, and this engineering marvel is now one of the world's busiest shipping routes. View more

Sparing ships from an arduous 280-mile journey around the sometimes challenging waters of the Danish peninsula. Ships from pleasure yachts to giant tankers cruise the gently curving, artificial waterway - which is fringed by walls of forest, green fields, and occasional soaring bridges. The western entrance branches off from the mouth of the Elbe river at Brunsbüttel, and you'll easily spot the eastern entrance at Kiel-Holtenau, where you are saluted by a Venetian bell tower as you sail the town's fjord. Huge locks raise and lower the water level at the entrances, and the leisurely transit takes roughly eight hours, with plenty to look out for along the way. The Rendsburg High Bridge is a spectacular structure spanning the wide canal. It features a hanging gondola, which can swing people and vehicles across from one side of the bank to the other. More recently the dramatic archway of the Levensau High Bridge was added.
