Ship load of College Guys

The week before Kiel week, the Maine Maritime Academy training ship T.S. state of Maine will be docked in the naval base in Kiel. I am the student shore activities planner, and I have over 200 college guys, who for three days are going to be offloaded. What activities would be recommend for this crowd, and I am talking about the people who do not go directly to the bar.

And Lübeck. UNESCO world heritage site and the "queen" of the Hanseatic League

An idea for a film evening on board (if such a thing exists): the silent film "Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror"

The scenes in the fictional city of Wisborg in the film were done in Lübeck and Wismar.

My son will be on that ship! Is there a train station in Kiel or a public transportation system that would take them beyond the immediate area (such as to Hamburg)?

For a day trip by train to Hamburg a Schleswig-Holstein Ticket is the best deal. Covers the regional trains from Kiel to Hamburg and all local public transport in Hamburg.
