German Cruisers at Copenhagen - 4 May 1945

In the lower part of the picture, the german cruisers Prinz Eugen and Nurenberg can be seen.

Another view of Prinz Eugen at pier in the Kronl°bsbassin in Copenhagen after it surrendered. The Kronl°bsbassin is a part of the Freeport of Copenhagen. At the end of the war, she was one of only two operational German cruisers left (the other was the light cruiser NŘrnberg), and was surrendered to British Royal Navy forces in Copenhagen on 8 May 1945.
