Laboe Naval Memorial (Marine-Ehrenmal), Kiel

4.5
Laboe Naval Memorial (Marine-Ehrenmal) originally was a memorial to the fallen members of the Kaiserliche Marine during World War I. After World War II, it was converted into an internationally accepted peace monument. Today, it commemorates all sailors of every nationality who died during the World Wars. Spend some time to reflect on history in this sobering memorial, and climb to the top of the tower for views of the bay. The tower also includes an exhibition about the German Naval Forces since the 19th century. You can buy a joint ticket for the Naval Memorial and the submarine U-995 just across the road, which is also worth a visit.

  • Before visiting this memorial, I had little understanding of U-Boat losses during the war, being British, all I had been taught was how much devastation they had brought to allied shipping. The memorial really brings it home to the fact that men lost their lives on both sides, with more than 30,000 men losing their lives in U-Boats, young men just doing their job, the attrition rate was horrendous. This is absolutely worth a visit, regardless if you have an interest in U-Boats, naval fighting or WWII.
  • Great place and amazing views. It is a good way to learn about History and the importance of German Navy.
  • The submarine is outstanding. My son loves it!
  • Serene place. Better to take cash, they would not take credit cards for the ticket and for EC card the bill needs to be above 10 EUR so I had to buy some knickknack from the souvenir shop
  • The great place to visit. Atmosphere of solemnity. Perfect location and excellent view from the top.
