Ger­man Navy Mu­seum Wil­helmshaven

The Navy Museum awaits you right new to Wilhelmshaven's landmark, the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Bridge. A visit to Germany’s biggest museum war ship is the best way to vividly experience everyday life at sea. The mast of the missile destroyer Mölders reaches up 40 meters high over the outdoor area of the German Navy Museum in Wilhelmshaven. It features video documentation of former crewmembers describing their experiences and impressions on board. Other fascinating stops on the outdoor area are the submarine U 10 and the mine hunter Weilheim. You will get a fair idea of the atmosphere on board as you stroll along the corridors and cells of the ships, past the operation HQ and the living quarters of the crew members. In the main building of the German navy museum, visitors get the chance to indulge in some informative time travel through the changeful history of Germany and its marine force. In the summer, your visit to the museum is complemented by a historical harbour tour that you can round off with a stop at the museum cafe.
