U-Boot Museum Hamburg, Hamburg

3.3
#13 of 38 in Museums in Hamburg
Walk through a real Russian Soviet submarine--the largest of its type in the world--at U-Boot Museum Hamburg at the St. Pauli Fish Market. Built in 1975, this historic army vehicle was used by the Russian navy for hunting, espionage, and patrol purposes. You'll quickly get a feel for the tight living conditions faced by the boat's 78-man crew. The different areas of the submarine are well-marked, allowing you to understand the vessel's history and purpose more easily. Due to the cramped quarters, claustrophobes should avoid this museum.

    I visited today and my adult son the u-boat museum. Quite impressive. Are you interested for the cold war and all that followed? Sure do. The submarine is still in the State in which he was used. Incredible that 84 people on board lived there. In many places you can barely stand up, sleeping places were there but for some gelikkigen, the rest slept on the machines or in a corner. Certainly the effort to visit. The entrance price is rather on the high side and it's a pity you the command Bridge, which is probably even a phone box large, cannot visit without paying Guide. I have enjoyed and could hardly believe that this submarine was in use until 2002. So primitive!

Where to stay in Hamburg

The most dynamic part of the city is the St. Pauli area, also known as Kiez. This is where tourists and locals brush shoulders among the many bars, shops, and sites. Jungfernsteig, or Neuer Wall, is an upmarket area with brand name shopping and luxury dining. Consider a stay in the bohemian quarters of Altona or the Sternschanze/Schanzenviertel. These areas burst with character and offer out-of-the-ordinary shopping and dining experiences at lower prices.
