On September 4, 2021, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., the German Navy will carry out an “Open Ship” in the area of the Kiel naval base.
This year the event is a little smaller, but that doesn’t make it any less interesting. One of the newest frigates of the German Navy, the “North Rhine-Westphalia”, will be on display. The flagship of the Kiel Week 2021 is the frigate “Hamburg”. The tender “Rhein” and the mine hunting boats “Weilheim” and “Fulda” from Kiel can also be visited. In addition, the Seebataillon from Eckernförde, the base fire brigade and the career truck of the Bundeswehr will take part.
As usual, access is via the south guard of the naval base. Prerequisites for those interested: You must be vaccinated, recovered or tested (result <24h) - valid proof must be carried with you. Personal mouth and nose protection must also be brought along and worn in designated areas. The LUCA app is offered at the guard to record the necessary contacts. Manual entry in the form of lists will not be possible for organizational reasons. Another highlight is the traditional concert of the Kiel Marine Music Corps on Friday, September 10, 2021 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. This takes place in the sports hall of the naval base and is barrier-free. Interested citizens must register for the concert by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org . The number of visitors is limited, admission is free, but after the concert a donation will be requested for those affected by the flood disaster in North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate.
