Frankenwald, One of the world's best wreck dives
Frankenwald must be regarded as one of the best wreck dives in the world, as it stands today in all its splendour, it is an amazing experience to dive into this monster ship
She’s still in extremely good condition after over 70 years at the bottom of the sea, and several dives are necessary to explore all her secrets. The deck lies at 24–34 meters. The bow of Frankenwald at 34 meters depth is truly a stunning sight. In good visibility, you can see all the way to the mast and bridge almost 40 meters further behind! The fore-deck is full of interesting details like bollards, winches, ventilation pipes and much more.

Frankenwald was built in steel in Hamburg in 1922, and is a full 122 meters long. Although it is possible to swim the entire length in one dive, you need several dives to see and explore the whole wreck. The stern is epic and the place at Frankenwald with the most pictures ...... rest of the story you hear in Gulen.
