Oslo Guide

The capital of Norway is the city of Oslo and is located on an arc of land at the northernmost end of Oslofjord which is almost divided by the Nesodden Peninsular, opposite the city. The city is bounded on its other sides by hills and mountains and is comprised of around 40 islands within its city boundary. It is relatively easy to get around this compact city using public transport or alternatively bicycles can be rented across the city. There are many things to see and do in Oslo including seeing the works by the celebrated artist Edvard Munch. His works can be found in a number of institutions in the city along with other Norwegian and international artists. The Norwegian government has recently invested large amounts of money in cultural installations, facilities, buildings and festivals in the City of Oslo.

From the city's port, ferries can be taken to destinations in Denmark and Germany. There are daily crossings to Copenhagen with a crossing time of around 16 hours, to Hirtshals with a crossing time of around 10 hours to Frederikshavn with a crossing time of 8 hours and 30 minutes and to Kiel in Germany with a crossing time of around 20 hours. Passenger facilities in Oslo's ferry terminal are rather limited although there is a coffee shop and a small departure hall.


Kiel Guide

The city of Kiel is located in the north of Germany and lies on the Baltic Sea coast, to the south east of the Jutland Peninsular. Situated around 90 km to the north of the city of Hamburg, Kiel is a major maritime hub in Germany and has been one of the traditional homes of the German Navy's Baltic Sea Fleet. The city is also a major centre of high tech shipbuilding and an important transport hub as a result of its location on the Kiel Fjord and the busiest waterway in the world, the Kiel Canal.

Visitors to Kiel will find a number of interesting museums that focus on topics such as zoological, geological, historical, fine art, industrial and the military. Notable is the Stadt- und Schifffahrtsmuseum Warleberger Hof (City and Maritime Museum), which belongs to the association museen am meer.

A number of passenger ferries to Sweden, Norway, Russia, and other countries operate from the city's harbour. Today, Kiel harbour is an important port of call for cruise ships touring the Baltic Sea.
