Life in Kiel

Children & Families

Kiel is a family-friendly city and an excellent place to live and work. The city provides a lot of support for families settling down and making a new home here by the sea.

Great emphasis is placed on the ideal work-life balance in the city on the fjord. The city and the Evangelical-Lutheran Church set up the initiative “Family-friendliness as a location factor” (Familienfreundlichkeit als Standortfaktor), a network of now more than 40 Kiel-based companies that regard themselves and plan to develop further as family-oriented employers.
