Official Kiel Week opening 2022 on the town hall stage on June 18, 2022 with Anglasen (bell strike) by Daniel Günther and a typhon signal by Robert Habeck.
It starts again in the state capital Kiel, on Saturday evening from 7.20 p.m. the time had finally come: the Kiel Week 2022 was officially opened. After a two-year Corona break, the opening ceremony took place again on the Kiel City Hall Square on a large stage and with several thousand spectators. As always, the first part of the opening ceremony was the “Anglasen”, the striking of the ship’s bell. This task was carried out by the incumbent Prime Minister of Schleswig-Holstein, Daniel Günther.
Guest of honor at the official opening of Kiel Week 2022 was Robert Habeck, German Vice Chancellor and Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy. First Robert Habeck had to answer a few questions from the NDR presenter and then the Typhon signal was given. Robert Habeck flipped the switch on the big blue ship’s horn. With the signal long-short-short-long, which means “Cast off!”, the Kiel Week 2022 was officially opened.
In addition to Robert Habeck, the following were present at the opening of Kiel Week 2022 on June 18, 2022:
- Daniel Günther (Prime Minister of Schleswig-Holstein)
- Ulf Kampfer (Mayor of the City of Kiel)
- Hans-Werner Tovar (city president of Kiel)
- Kristina Herbst (President of the State Parliament)
The Kiel Week is an annual sailing regatta that has been held in Kiel since the late 19th century. It is considered one of the largest sailing events in the world.
In 2020 and 2021, the Kiel Week has been moved from June to September. The focus was on sailing and the sailing competitions on the Kiel Fjord. Larger concerts with thousands of spectators have not taken place for two years.
This year, however, there will again be a large number of concerts on numerous stages, including here on the Rathausbühne, on the Fördebühne on Bernhard-Harms-Weg (near the Kiel line near the Kiel Fjord in the small parking lot in front of the Institute for the World Economy), the RADIO BOB! Rockcamp on the Reventlouwiese as well as on the open-air stage Krusenkoppel, where paid concerts take place as part of “gewaltig leise”.
