Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer (CDU) was impressed by the training there after visiting the naval school in Flensburg-Mürwik.
Theory and practice went hand in hand there, she said on Thursday in Flensburg.
For three hours beforehand, the minister had informed herself about the training of prospective naval officers.
Kiel - Kramp-Karrenbauer used the tour in the presence of the commander of the naval school, Flotilla Admiral Jens Nemeyer, for discussions with soldiers.
In addition to the ship handling simulator, she also looked at the pre-sailing training on the school's training mast.
There the future cadets of the sailing training ship “Gorch Fock” learn how to stay in the rigging on land.
