Thanks for all the comments above. I will answer for my own question. Here is what happened: The first officer was indeed confused about my Canadian greencard and was wrong to redirect me to the E2 Department (it's B5!).

Others have already mentioned the urban stuff, obv. it depends what you like and what is currently allowed for you. But there are also nice outdoor things.

CinemaxX is right next to Kiel Hbf. This evening The King's Man - The Beginning is showing at 19:30 and 22:50. Note: the movie dialogue is likely to be in German unless English is explicitly stated.
