    From the viewing platform you have an impressive view of Kiel, the Kiel Fjord and Kiel Bay. In good weather you can see as far as Denmark.

    U 995 was built in 1943 at the Blohm & Voss shipyard in |
    Hamburg built. It belongs to type Vllc / 41, of which
    until 1944 a total of 663 boats were built. After commissioning, U 995 was deployed from Norway against Allied convoys, which supplied the Soviet Union with supplies. At the German capitulation in May 1945, the U 995 fell undamaged to the Allies, who later handed the submarine over to the Norwegian Navy. After decommissioning in 1962, U 995 was returned from Norway to the Federal Republic of Germany as a sign of reconciliation and, after restoration in 1972, was installed as a technical museum in front of the naval memorial.
    U 995 is the last surviving Type VIIc submarine commemorates the horrors of the submarine war that claimed thousands of victims on both sides. Of the
    around 40,000 German submariners of the second 2
    30,000 were killed in World War II.

    A striking memorial at the beginning of the Kiel Fjord, which is visible from almost everywhere on the banks of the fjord.

    Laboe is known throughout Germany not only for the naval memorial but also for its "submarine on the beach". And the question is asked again and again: “How did it get there?”. On September 16, 1943, U-995 was put into service under the name “Hecht” in the Hamburg shipyard “Blohm & Voss”. It belonged to the Type VII C, of which a total of 693 units had been completed by 1945. Until its decommissioning on May 8, 1945 in Drontheim, Norway, U-995 was mainly used in the North Sea.Source:

    The marine memorial is definitely worth a visit. It reminds of all those who fell at sea and therefore makes you very thoughtful.

    Impressive and frightening at the same time, how close together the memorial and cenotaph are. This is definitely discussed on site.
    It is worth not only climbing the tower and enjoying the beautiful view and looking at the ship models in the museum, but also entering the flag room in the tower and the underground memorial under the space between the tower and the museum.
