Picture gallery last trip for U 17 from Kiel through the Kiel Canal via Rotterdam and the Rhine to the Technik Museum Sinsheim Speyer.
This is where the long journey for the submarine U 17 starts in Kiel on April 29, 2023. It started early on Saturday morning at around 6 a.m., on a pontoon, pulled by the two tugboats Teddy and Noorcat. Because the submarine U 17 (ship identification S 196) of the class 206 A was already decommissioned in 2006 by the German Navy. And in the past few weeks, among other things, all weapon systems have been removed in the Kiel shipyard. U 17 could no longer drive under its own power and therefore had to be transported on a pontoon.
