Hmm. Settings menu in the top menu bar has an entry "Configure KOrganizer" (or 
similar, translating from a German localized oned).

It opens a settings window that has a "General" section.
In that I have four tabs, the last one is labelled "Calendar"

It list both of my two calendar sources and it has a three buttons, one 
labelled "Add..."

Through that I get a list of possible calendar backends, one of the being 
"ICal file".

Selecting that lets me choose a .ics file as the calendar source.

Help -> About Kontact says "Kontact shell 4.11.5"

Debian unstable, but there might be a newer version in the archives now.
