"Laboe near Kiel" Laboe by sabsi

Laboe Travel Guide: 20 reviews and 64 photos

Before taking a ferry to Sweden from Kiel we went to Laboe, a seaside town close to Kiel, for a few hours and I thought I could share some of my pics from there.



The most interesting part of Laboe is a WWII U-Boot that you can visit. It's shocking to see on how little space the soldiers had to live - I'd have been claustrophobic big time - even when the submarine wasn't diving. And sleeping on torpedos? Hmmm sounds horrible!

The beach

As well as the submarine there is also a nice beach at Laboe. You can go up to the monument in the picture to get a nice view of the "Kieler Förde" and the ships leaving Kiel for Norway or Sweden.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Interesting visit to the submarine
  • Cons:The inside of the memorial is awful.
  • In a nutshell:A nice place to spend a few hours when in the north of Germany.
  • Last visit to Laboe: Mar 1998
