  • Rendezvous on Saint-Nazaire: Atlantic stopover. Located in the former submarine base at the port this tour allows to discover the universe of the old legend liner built in Saint-Nazaire and sailing on the seas of the globe. From the entrance of visitors imprint Laxe allowing time to access the heart of his ships. Then he visits all of the spaces, housing luxury cabins third class, to the engine room, the decks and the wheelhouses. Many movable objects are exposed to get an idea of the luxury and refinement to the French. It takes at least 1:30 to take full advantage of this museum. Furthermore it is proposed a triple ticket upon entry. The second allows to visit a real submarine, down into its innards and make life on board the french submarine, which was one of the first to go under the sea ice. Finally the last ticket allows access to another Museum. overall if you're seven minutes walk from each other.

  • Imposing structure of reinforced concrete, which we would call a eco-monsters, but the French have valued from the point of view of tourism, creating an attraction admission charge.

  • Fairly takes the breath away. All these years on still awe inspiring and humbling
  • Excellent shelter for submarines. If I needed to hide submarines it is without doubt here that I would put them. Otherwise it is ugly and grey and it hides the landscape but as I don't live beside I don't care.

  • The basic sub - marine is one of the five bases for submarines built on the Athantique front in the second world war by the Nazi Germany. The visit is free. You can also visit a submarine. Today, it is a center of activity with shops and the night of the jazz bands or rock. Discover this special place of our heritage.
