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.

  • This memorial includes a very interesting museum on German navies and their heroic history. On top of the tower one gets a beautiful panoramic view of the area.

  • A tribute to the mariners from all countries in the world. The structure of the monument is shaped like a big submarine turret. On the top a terrace allows a nice view of the Kiel channel. Inside, on the basement there is a memorial to the fallen sailors from all countries, silent admonishment against war. A place to go and to linger.
  • An amazing memorial to the sailors of the German navy who have lost their lives in conflict. It has a lift to the top which offers panoramic views of the kiel area. Nearby is the u595, the last German u boat in existence. Well worth a visit.
