Archival history

The city archive of Kiel is a store of information on the history of the city. It stores about three kilometers of documents in its magazines. The holdings document more than 750 years of the city's history. The majority of the archives come from the city administration. The offices hand over documents that are no longer needed to the archive: Files, contracts and minutes, but also photos, maps and printed matter continuously supplement our stocks. The City Archive secures documents so that present and future generations can protect their rights. It guarantees that the written cultural heritage of our city will be preserved permanently.
