Needless to say, this is even more the case during the Kieler Woche. Sailors in uniform have always been an integral part of the image of this international festival. The navy is not only indispensable for the organization of the festival week, but is also a host of international calibre. Destroyers, frigates, corvettes, high-speed launches and mines-weepers from all over the world will be mooring in Kiel's Tirpitz Harbour for the great meeting of fleets.
