The SMS Dresden was a light cuiser class vessel. She was built at Kiel and launched April 1917. She was attacked by a British submarine and sunk in August 1917.
The wreck of the Dresden lies in 35 metres of water on her portside.
The Dresden was name-ship for the Dresden II class, and rests on her port side in water ranging from 25-45m. Although the hull is well preserved, the weather deck of the Dresden is collapsing to port, exposing the underside and burying the forward armaments in the mud of the area. Built in Kiel and launched on 25 April 1917, she was scuttled at 1130 hrs on 21 June 1919. Displacing 5,600 tons and 156m (512 ft) long, she was the heaviest of the light cruisers in the fleet, carrying 2.5" thick armour, and armed with eight 5.9" guns.
