I have lived in Kiel for several years and enjoy the community. Everyone is very friendly and nice. It's very safe; I've never been scared for my well-being. I work in Kiel and find it to be a very positive work environment. It is a family-friendly, small town environment suited for raising a family. Everything is close together, so you never have to go far to get what you need.

Kiel is a small town that is very family friendly. The interconnected relations between members of the town create a welcoming and comfortable environment.
Great small community where everyone knows everyone. There are numerous parks and a great library. They have a dog park which my dog loves going to as well as many walking trails.
