Welcome to Kiel!

Welcome to Kiel!


Kiel is a truly unique community, bustling with commerce, culture and community activity in tune with the challenges of the new millennium, yet quaint enough to remember its heritage.

Wonderful to live in and delightful to visit, Kiel boasts breathing space for year-around living --- the vital new life of spring, radiant summer living, the sensory rush of a colorful autumn and the exhilarating crispness of Wisconsin winter. Kiel is nestled into a framework of unforgettable scenery on the northern edge of the Kettle Moraine, and dressed out against the backdrop of the beautiful Sheboygan River. Only an hour's drive from Milwaukee or Green Bay, Kiel also lies midway between the shores of Lake Michigan and Lake Winnebago.

With its feet in both Manitowoc and Calumet Counties, Kiel is encircled by a loop of Eastern Wisconsin communities including Appleton, Sheboygan, Manitowoc and Fond du Lac, all within 40 minutes of Kiel's doorstep.

Ice carvers enjoy success

A light dusting of snow and relatively calm wind conditions offered an exceptional backdrop for the 23rd annual Ice Sculpture Contest in Kiel Saturday.
Although temperatures peaked around 14 degrees, the carving teams seemed to bask in a relatively mild day.
A total of 34 ice blocks were set up for carving this year, and teams vied for competitive honors in four categories.
The team from Giebler Chiropractic earned "Rookie of the Year" honors by capturing first place in the First-Timers division.
In the heavily-contested adult division, Trails End won the top prize with its carving of Petey Pelican. Right on its heals in second place was the spider web offered by Country Visions Cooperative. Third place in the adult division went to Dr. Barb Karls' team. They sculpted a trio of minions. Honorable mentions in the adult division went to Lulloff Hardware, Bob Schoenborn's Jewelry, Bank First National and Kiel Vet Clinic.
In the High School Division, first place went to Mannenbach Mechanical, with its sculpture of a snowman. Second place went to LTC with a sculpture of a penguin, while third place went to First Merit Bank, a sculpture of a basketball.
In the youth division, the Kiel Soccer Club earned first place, followed by Cheryl Brack-American Family Insurance in second place.
The winning teams may pick up their trophies at Delta Publications, beginning Monday, Feb. 3.
