Well worth a look at this Russian Submarine. You can go in and come out the other end. You need to be fairly nimble to get through all the doors. It's very cramped but really interesting. Nine euro's for entry.

I really cannot recommend this tour! You have to pay a lot of money and even more for the guided tour! And inside is nothing special except pipes. After the Russians sold this submarine, they removed all interesting things out of it.

When hearing there was a submarine museum, made a b-line for it! It is amazing to see how the people worked/lived in such confined conditions. All the switches/gauges around it, rooms doubling up for different purposes. Can't imagine working on one, and wouldn't fancy it, but to visit it's great!

Interesting. Imagine to sail with such a vessel for weeks and to share beds with colleagues in shifts. No fresh air... certainly only for selected people.

This was a great opportunity I couldn't miss: a chance to walk around a Soviet submarine! It is cramped and you'll struggle to do it if you're too tall, too fat or lack mobility but you should definitely try and check it out. The whole experience is a little unnerving but it was really cool to walk around a submarine!

Came here with 3 children. They loved it. Very interesting place to visit, would like to know a little bit more about it. The signs were in englisg which was great! But there were no English tours available! Not suitable for older or very unfit persons! The trip is through a very tight u boot. Really loved this!

I have always wanted to tour a submarine so it was a great opportunity to tour this Cold War relic. We opted for the admission only ticket as all the tours were in German. The ticket does not allow you to go to the command centre. Whilst the submarine walk through was interesting to the extent that you saw how... More

This is a Russian submarine which is converted to a museum. Everything in the submarine is extremely real. Feels like you are under water with the soldiers. It is not easy to walk through the submarine, the doors are tight and the stairways are steep. It was a very surprising experience for me to visit such museum. It takes about... More

If you have any interest in naval warfare or naval history then you owe yourself the hour it takes to explore the U-434. You don't get a discount using the Hamburg card as you do with some of the other local attractions, but the prices were reasonable. We didn't take the audio tour, but simply explored the sub and enjoyed... More

Our family loves submarines so we were delighted to see there was one in Hamburg! We could not do the guided tour due to lack of German skills but it was great fun to walk through the submarine ourselves and peek around. Very atmospheric and providing a real insight into the life of submariners

Thank MGS44
