Simplicity is the wellspring of power.

Simplicity is the wellspring of power.

Kiel is known as a stalwart of Nordic tradition, as a cosmopolitan city with forward-thinking drive and energy, and of course as a major hub for international trade. The same can be said for our WordPress theme of the same name, which acts calmly, but with quiet power.

As a shop or blog theme: Minimalist design meets efficient technological implementation. The optimized CSS makes it elegant as well as performant. Unpretentious, uncomplicated, and contemporary – Kiel can be summarized with these three main characteristics. The perfect choice for those, who want to focus on what really matters: Products and content.

Kiel bids you welcome!

Main features at a glance

Responsive web design

Kiel stands for a contemporary, mobile-optimized shopping experience. The responsive web design guarantees the very best presentation of shop or blog content – whatever the end device. The easy to use layout leaves plenty of room for your content.

Shop with WooCommerce

This contemporary trading format is a perfect fit for Kiel, the former Hanseatic City. The theme automatically aligns its appearance to the popular shop extension WooCommerce for WordPress. Design and functions of third party extensions can be adapted and complemented via a child theme.

Multilingual Content

Multilingual content for international projects and customers is implemented using our plugin Multilingual Press Pro. Kiel will recognize the selected language of the plugin independently, and will place it accordingly.

Legal Certainty

In conjunction with our plugin WooCommerce German Market, the Kiel theme delivers the necessary technical prerequisites for the operation of an online shop in Germany and Austria with optimized legal certainty. Examined and confirmed by an attorney at law.


Kiel automatically compresses stylesheets and JavaScript files for delivery. Instead of JavaScript, Kiel uses SEO-friendly CSS3 animation and a streamlined HTML5 markup. In terms of its own functionalities, Kiel is ultra-discreet – as a good theme should be, thus clearing the way for professional performance optimization using plugins. For those, who like to keep things simple …

Premium Support

Your Kiel license includes a full year unlimited access to the MarketPress helpdesk. Our support team will be happy to provide hands on help with any problems you might encounter. Low-cost license extensions are available as well.
