First off - its not a WWII U-Boat, it's a 1976 Soviet one. For 9 euro you get to wander through a decommissioned sub, watching out that you don't bump your head everywhere (it's a very cramped space). I did feel a little claustrophobic at times, so bear that in mind and the ideal height so minimise bumps (I had... More

This is a 1970's era Russian submarine. It is not a WWII German U-Boat. This museum clearly relies on the public's association of "U-Boat" with WWII and allows people to falsely believe this ship is from that era. Information stating otherwise is not readily posted until after you have purchased your ticket and received your information pamphlet. Now, looking back,... More

One of the most popular attractions in Hamburg is the Soviet Tango class submarine U-434 (originally named the B-515). It is at the St. Pauli Fish Market as a museum. It is a permanent floating attraction year round. I am a retired U.S. Army officer and I always have an interest in military subjects and history. If you are expecting... More

Let say, there is not so much space but really interesting to see how the people are working and living on the Submarine. And its better to order a guide, then you can visit a captain bridge as well

No it is not a U-Boat, but if you are curious about the conditions on a sub take a look. Located not far from the tunnel we came across this and had a look. It is small confined and interesting. Did not take long and damage to the head bumping the celling; throughly enjoyed the experience. Confirmed the fact that... More

To clarify: this is not a German U-boat but a Russian communist-era submarine. If you're specifically wanting a WW2-era sub, don't come, but if you've never been on a submarine before, I highly recommend you check it out. It feels like a literal time capsule, and takes a little bit longer to walk through than you may expect looking at... More

This is a very intersting place to visit even if you are not particularly a fan of submarines as there are very few chances otherwise to enter a submarine and see how life is going on there. This submarine was built in 1974 in Russia. Moreover I advise you to also visit U Boot U 995 for comparison (it was... More
