  • It certainly is a curious experience. If you want to see a submarine inside it is worth. There are no guides or anything. You enter by a tip, explore it and is already.

  • Something tight; one can hardly imagine that the crew was there often a very long way. Often bathed in perpetual readiness. The German Navy Federal has here brought a boat to its original state and provided a piece of the past without negative association as a museum piece of the public for the visitors. Worth a visit in Laboe and thus also of the submarine "U-995".

  • The visit to U-995 is soon over. To get into the submarine's aft and through all the submarine's compartments, except the Tower before you come out the other end. The boat is nice well maintained and provides a good insight into how the plight of the crew has been.

  • I'm glad I only had to walk through this thing and not live in it for weeks on end. Fascinating to see that they practically put people inside a giant machine with absolutely no comfort to speak of. Add water bombs and the knowledge that there's no way to escape to the mix and you have a truly horrifying experience.
  • It's a nice place to visit. Everything is fixed in place so not to expect Action or so. You go in through the back door and get to walk from there though the full length of the submarine, and then get out at the front door. During the walk you will be moving through Rittenhouse "rooms". Sometimes I'll face a circular door where you have a hunch through it. At the far most front room before you exite u will c the turbido. Its a nice walk I'd say, nice experience. You get to be thankful you don't work there or got to live in this crampy space for long times. If you are in Kiel it's definitely something to do. The beach around it is also nice, so you might as well spend the day there and visit the submarine before hitting back home /hotel.
  • I had an absolutely TERRIBLE experience! The service was crappy, and they forgot about my chicken nuggets!!!!!!!! There were NO boats shaped like U’s. It was like it was like a regular submarine museum. Would give 0 stars.
  • Can't believe this submarine is that old. In my opinion it was worth the money .it was a quick tour but it was worth it. It's fascinating to see inside of this submarine, the small beds, control rooms and even a missile. Also the area is really nice and by the water so it's also fun to walk around.
  • Very interesting, a reall piece of WWII History. A " must see it" if you are arround here. Entrance fee , with the Laboe Memorial Museum ( combo) 9 euro. Good price.
