31.03.1933-29.09.1934: After these years in service as a school ship, the longest trip to China in the early 1930s, the Emden was temporarily decommissioned by the Reichsmarine from 1933 to 1934 due to extensive work by renewal. During the conversion, the ignition of the steam boilers was changed from coal to oil, the fuel supply was increased to the maximum possible, the guns were replaced by others with longer tubes of the same caliber and larger launcher torpedo tubes were installed. After that, she sailed again as a training ship for cadets until 1939.
