Don't go near anything more powerful than a strong breeze and dont get isolated from your team..

Your gun range and ROF is better than the cruisers at that tier so stay back and work as a support ship.  You have good hydro (5km) if you are put in a position to contest a cap of take on a smoked up DD. The HE is weak but AP is pretty good.  You have no armour and a citadel bigger than your ship so expect to take big damage if you engage enemies without engaging your brain..  This same thing carries on through the turdberg (although I liked it).

Always place your ship in a kiting position. Long range HE spammer. Just play like a VMF/soviet CA

As Ralph said the AP is very good,fling it at enemy ships and only change to HE if you are getting zero damage from the AP ( you can get decent AP damage on BB a lot of the time) or need to shoot at a DD.

Keep an eye on ANY enemy ship that could shoot at you once you are in their gun range,and WASD as needed.

Make sure you unlock the range mod first. Basically, you stay at near-max range, your HE spam is good in a sense that you have 1/4 th HE pen which is basically a free IFHE. Once you set some fires, or the target is already burning, switch to AP on the super structure of BBs, or the bow and stern. For enemy cruisers, switch to AP as soon as you spot them broadside. You can citadel braodside cruisers even at max range. Don't forget, you have the best RoF and its easy for you to rotate your guns left and right. The turret placements makes Konigsberg an excellent kiter. For DDs, just stick to HE.
