  • This is a once in a lifetime chance to see one of two remaining U Boats in Germany and enjoy the Maritime Museum and the seaside village of Laboe at the same time. This is strictly a self guided walkt...  more »
  • Those who wish to move time in "Das Boot" and who has a little imagination or interest in historical technique, which is right here! A very well-preserved and well-maintained submarine, which is located on the beach and can be visited at any time. In my opinion worth a visit!

  • 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
