    The Berlin was an old LIGHT CRUISER, NOT a battleship.She survived from WW1 and, until the new building come, they are the cruisers Germany had.

  2. Desertsailor says

    Vongratz is correct. Berlin was commissioned in 1905. In 1927 she was a training ship, and this is doubtless her departure on a training cruise. She was decommissioned in 1929, and used as a barracks ship until the end of WWII when she was scuttled.
