Kiel's seaport is one of the most versatile and economical ports in Germany. Its favourable geographical location, deep water, first-class terminal facilities and good transport connections make the port equally attractive for cargo handling and passenger traffic.

The port handles 7.89 million tonnes of goods a year; 2.8 million passengers board or disembark a ferry or cruise ship. The modern ferries of the Scandinavian lines characterise the appearance of Kiel's city port. The largest part of Kiel's port is located on the east bank of the fjord. The Ostuferhafen is Kiel's freight and logistics centre. Freight transport to the Baltic States, Sweden and Russia is concentrated here.
