  • 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.
  • Loved the U Boat! Finally something worth seeing in this god forsaken country. However, like anything in Germany except breathing, it cost. 4.5Euros. And you cant visit the upper deck.
  • Rare historical U-boat, the technical interior makes the mind race and imagine the atmosphere on board. Take your time on each of the sections.
  • I had very mixed feelings when visiting this truly historic 'weapon of mass destruction,' but I am really glad that I went. This is an example of German engineering at its best whilst it is also a timely reminder for us all never to let Europe fall into war ever again. A must see!
  • Nice u boat... Educative
