  • Visit the submarine out of the II World War, located on the beach, you should. It is the same type as in the film THE BOAT - very impressive.

  • When you've seen TV documentaries and read about 2. During World War I, we know that the German U-boats played a very important role during the battle in the North Atlantic. A visit to U 995 gives a good insight into the cramped and harsh conditions the crew lived during that time. The u-boat's technical installations are fairly impressive engineering. U 995 is certainly worth a visit if you are in Kiel.

  • Who has never seen a submarine from the inside will be thrilled. You get to feel the tightness and can also well imagine, there is uncomfortable when the engines running and it makes loud and hot. An impressive piece of military history.

  • 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!
  • The greatness of Germany in front of you!
  • This was the closest I've ever been to something related to world war two. I was amazed be the technology and the unbelievable tight space where entire crews had to live for weeks or months in a row. For this U-boot and it's neighbour monument the greatest feeling I felt was respect. A lot of respect for all women, men and children that got somehow involved. A true monument of honour.
  • One of the very few remaining!
  • I've never seen submarine like this. Great to imagine, how it was to serve on submarine. And also excelent memorial.
