  • After visiting several submarines this I was a little scarce, is well preserved and the hard visit just 10 or 15 minutes if you entertain for photos. The price of the ticket are €9.5 If you buy the combo submarine memorial if you go only to the submarine think they are €5

  • You can not fail to visit the last German submarine Class VII, which you can visit in the world... If you saw the movie u571 this attraction is for you

  • You can get a good impression of the circumstances under which the "Wolves" in use were, how they lived in cramped left to languish, and also died.

  • 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
