close to the Tirpitz Museum, surrounded by a lovely cemetery with a cairn to British Navy men who died during one of the attacks on the Tirpitz, you may even meet reindeer in the cemetery (we did) more »
A beautiful church in a lovely scenic spot. The key reason to come here was to see the memorial to those who who took part in Operation Source. The attack to neutralise the heavy German warship, the Tirpitz, using X-class midget submarines.
Nice place for a short visit with a historically important graveyard.
