Regional Group Kiel


Studying Between the Seas

Hello everybody! Welcome to the website of the Kiel regional group DAAD Alumni & Friends! We look forward to taking you on a tour of discovery to the beautiful and interesting sites around here.

Schleswig-Holstein is the northernmost federal state in Germany and the gateway to Scandinavia. This is home to the Kiel regional group of DAAD Alumni & Friends. Every now and again, we go on excursions between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea to take a closer look at the history and culture of this region.


We may cycle through the Probstei landscape, visit the Phänomenta exhibition in Flensburg, go by boat to Helgoland, visit the art gallery, go on a stone-age tour of discovery to Albersdorf or join one of Georg’s legendary early-morning walks for early risers. The year ends with our Christmas celebrations, which we organise together with the tutors from the International Centre by way of tradition.

And what if you are a scholarship holder in Lübeck or Flensburg? Just let us know, and we will add you to our mailing list! We also look forward to hearing from alumni who have a good imagination and organisational skills and would like to contribute to planning and running events.
