University / School · Hidden Gem · Educational Site
The Naval Academy Mürwik is the main training establishment for all German Navy officers and replaced the German Imperial Naval Academy in Kiel.
It is located at Mürwik which is a part of Germany's northernmost city, Flensburg. Built on a small hill directly by the coast, it overlooks the Flensburg Fjord. The main building of the academy is known for its beautiful architecture and location, and is often named the "Red Castle".
As most naval officer cadets join the German Navy after passing their A-levels at school, signing up for thirteen years of service, the standard education consists of three parts:
1) The basic education at the Naval Academy lasts at least one year.
2) It is usually followed by university studies at the University of the German Federal Armed Forces which last around four years.
3) Given their degree of Bachelor or Master the young officers then return to the Naval Academy and other naval schools for advanced training. The advanced training lasts up to two years, depending on the officers' choice of an operational or engineering career and on the type of vessel, they are going to serve on. Those heading for a land-based post, also get the basic parts of the advanced training.
On completion of their education the young officers are ready to take their first post in the fleet or on land.
The Naval Academy at Muerwik carries out both, the basic education of the young officer cadets as well as parts of the advanced training for officers.
