    I was about 3 years ago with the Combi-ticket on the tower as well as the submarine, unfortunately both are fast, but the prospect is good and it's always interesting to go through the submarine.

    Very interesting if it is technically interested. The kids also liked. These include when you are in Kiel;

    You can buy a combination ticket together with the entry for monument buy. We are not the boat in, but especially with children fun to do!

  • A great experience. You can really feel the scale of the submarine as well as the complexity of running one. I would have liked a bit more information on each of the compartments.
  • Only remaining U-boat which actually fought in WW2. It was a real great experience to walk through this great historic war machine. It's goal was terrible but it's technique was great.
  • 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.
  • Nice submarine to see. Wish comments in English are available
  • Must see for every person interested in naval history. Incredible how small the boat is and the lack of elementary facilities is appaling (one small toilet one oven, no showers etc.)
