Königsberg was a light cruiser of the German K class in the German Reichsmarine and Kriegsmarine. Her sisterships were Köln and Karlsruhe.

After a number of foreign visits in the 1930s, the ship operated along the Spanish coast from November 1936 to January 1937 during the Spanish Civil War. Her design and construction rendered her poorly suited to commerce raiding or deep-water operations, and when war broke out in September 1939 she was assigned to duty as a torpedo training ship in the Baltic and subsequently used for mining operations in the North Sea (Operation "Westwall").
