This was built pre-WWII and is the main memorial for the German navy. It was strange to come here to learn about a British VC medal winner I had not heard of.

Went for a swim, but couldn't miss the naval memorial. Majestic in memory of. Actually it was more worth our visit than our aim to swim. Take the ferry from Kiel central station area and enjoy that ride also.
