of your in Kiel you must visit the u boat memorial. also look around Kiel harbour. they build subs there as well. up the coast is a military ship yard, plus the cruise ship berths. also find the flak museum. remember when you walk around Kiel 90% of it was bombed to oblivion. just by the harbour was a triangle lake where there was sailing at the weekends. there was a modelshop in kiel but i don't know if its still there.

U995 is on the list. We are there Kiel week so I suspect that there will be a lot going on. We are only there for one day - Saturday - on our cruise.

In Hamburg there is the Cap San Diego, the rather elegant 1960s Merchant ship.  There a new model boat show at Hamburg Maritime Museum in September but don't know of any model shops there.

Having been to Dortmund, which is the largest model show in the world, and visiting some of the biggest ports I am amazed it is so hard to find model shops in Germany. My non existant German makes the problem harder.

We are in Hamburg for 2 days but there is so much to do! We want to see the dock areas, the Maritime Museum, the Cap San Diego, the Minatur Wunderland and we have a real hankering to have a go at the Hot Rod City Tour.

Fortunately my wife agrees with the list and we compiled it together!

Yes we are nutters. In Fuerteventura earlier this year we hired these:

Hello


sorry for late repl but read just now this treat.


There are no shops left in Luebeck and Travemuende >:-o .
 In the near of Hamburg, place called Barsbüttel, you can find the shop of Stauffenbiehl.
In Bremen Blumenthal there is one
I forgot: in Kiel, part of called Raisdorf, you will find company CONRAD which will keep cars, planes ships and rc equipment.

Maybe you use this Infos next time.

If you are going as far north as Keil, it is only about 215km further to the original Lego Land in Denmark. Just outside Lego Land used to be home to the National Dolls Museum, which I found fascinating, and I am not into dolls, worth checking to see if it is still there.
