A very well presented late WWII submarine that gives an excellent impression of the cramped conditions in which 50+ men lived & worked for weeks at a time. Thankfully the smells & feelings of danger & panic are missing!

You have to stop an visit this beautiful submarine! At a small entry fee of 3,50€ you can discover every inch of the vessel.Discover how the crew had to live,sleep,eat on limited space.Very interesting to visit a WW2 U-Boot that never saw action.

Not sure if we wanted to go in, but with 3,5 EUR it was well worth it. Well presented and preserved- took just 15 min to go through. Recommend.

This example of a revolutionary submarine design came too late for WW2, but served as a model for the victors' post-war submarines. Not a lot of English on offer, but worth a visit. One has to clamber through several round door-holes to get through the...More
