Take the lift up to 57 meters and look around, this is a beautiful spot. Then take your time to visit the hall opposite the tower, to view the ships, and read about the people. Very carefully done!

It's well worth the visit if you're in the area. Also don't forget to visit the submarine across the road when you're here.

Lovely atmospheric place. We've been there in October, when it's still warm. You could get there by bus or by ferry. It's about 1 hr by ferry from Kiel. We went by ferry, stunning views at the golden hour/sunset. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants around if you get hungry.

This is a solemn, tasteful, and informative memorial. It was obviously intended as a fitting tribute to those who gave their lives at sea, not as a tourist draw nor to provide "entertainment". So if you're looking for "selfies", computer games or animation go to Disney. If you are a history buff, Naval historian, or simply want to pay respects... More

I happened upon this Memorial in 1990 while driving around in northern FRG. I still have a lot of stark and moving memories of walking the grounds. The story that I usually tell is about all the Ships' Horns and Whistles I heard while viewing all the outside exhibits. I asked the person in the gift shop why that was.... More

First - please note that this place is a place of remembering the fallen. So please behave respectful and do not disturb other visitors (esp. ceremonies). The memorial site offers a very informative exhibition about German naval forces since the last German emperor up to present day. From the tower top you get a great view on Kiel and surroundings...

I had the opportunity to bear and lay the wreath in this ceremony (though I am not in the picture) with another friend of mine and it was truly an event that is centered on remembering the past and moving toward a better future. There is a lot of old naval history in the memorial and the view from the... More

The memorial is well worth a visit. There is a lift to the first platform (57 meters high) and the views over the Baltic Sea and Laboe are amazing. There is also a second platform which can only be reached by stairs from the first platform, but unfortunately it was closed due to renovations. The memorial is very informative and... More

Just one way in and one way out and noch exclusive Informations. No Tour Guide! I think its too expensive and boring. The submarine in the Bavaria Movie Studios in Munich visited years ago was more interesting and you got more Information.
