  • A submarine in "Life size" to the experience, you can go through. A way which is otherwise not available one. Of course it's tight, but it is fun. Then we visited the marine Memorial. Also worth a visit, and for the rainy day a matching program.

  • Interesting tour of an authentic U-boat from the second world war. One understands quickly how short the crew must have been as well as the claustrophobic environment. Across the street is a memorial ...  more »
  • This is a static display right on the sea shore quite dramatic. You can go inside and examine just how life was in a submarine.  more »

  • A great experience. You can really feel the scale of the submarine as well as the complexity of running one. I would have liked a bit more information on each of the compartments.
  • Only remaining U-boat which actually fought in WW2. It was a real great experience to walk through this great historic war machine. It's goal was terrible but it's technique was great.
  • U-boat 995 is probably the best part of the naval memorial. Just a few meters off the beach and across the road from the memorial tower the vessel provides well preserved piece of history to examine. The boat is entered at the rear. Visitors are allowed to tour the vessel unescorted, but very little is provided in the way of explanation or documentation. The exit is at the bow of the submarine in the torpedo room. Purchase admission tickets across the street in the visitor's center of the memorial.
  • Nice submarine to see. Wish comments in English are available
  • Must see for every person interested in naval history. Incredible how small the boat is and the lack of elementary facilities is appaling (one small toilet one oven, no showers etc.)
