The Kulmerland was a supply ship of the Kriegsmarine that operated during the Second World War in the Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean. It was named after the Kulmerland region of Prussia, with the city of Kulm, which in 1920 was made part of the Polish Corridor.
After her operations in the Pacific she returned to Europe via the Cape of Good Hope, arriving at Nantes in 1943, but was trapped there. On 23 September 1943 she was damaged during an air raid. The ship was scuttled in August 1944 during the German retreat. She was refloated in 1945, but further repairs were abandoned. She was eventually towed to Briton Ferry, Wales, in 1950 for scrapping.
