U-Boot Museum Hamburg, Hamburg

#8 of 37 in Museums in Hamburg
Specialty Museum Museum
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. Work out when and for how long to visit U-Boot Museum Hamburg and other Hamburg attractions using our handy Hamburg vacation builder.

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.
