Guided tour of the submarine 434
For our visitors who want to learn more about life on board a submarine and the technical details, our guided tours with our trained guides are recommended.
Our guides will guide you - for an additional charge of €5.00 per person (duration of the tour approx. 45 minutes) - not only through the submarine with great background information, but also exclusively through the command center.
For all visitor groups with at least 5 people
Since the guided tours through the submarine can only take place in small groups due to the space available, it is therefore recommended for larger groups (minimum number of 5 people) to make a booking request using the form below.
The date of the desired tour must be at least 3 days in the future from the booking request.
For all other visitors (less than 5 people)
You can buy a guided tour directly on site at the box office - in addition to the admission ticket - and take part in one of the guided tours taking place. Please note that there may be waiting times here for organizational reasons.
There is also the option to book a private tour without outside participants to get a more comprehensive insight into life and work on board a submarine. For this alternative, please use the form >> private tour <<.
Important for everyone
Of course, you can also visit submarine 434 without a guided tour.
