Soviet submarine B-515 was a Tango-class submarine of the Soviet and Russian Navies. She remained in active service until 2001. She is currently docked in Hamburg and is open to the public as a museum exhibit. The submarine is sometimes referred to as U-434, which derives from the pennant number painted on the vessel.

Cool experience if you're interested in that type of thing. Mostly consists of a walk through an old Soviet era sub with a small booklet with basic facts about the sub. The truth of life on this or any sub is up to your imagination unless you want to get a guided tour. If you're clustraphopic you may not like it as the day I was there it was busy and there's no place to escape to - perhaps the authentic feel of the place after all now that I think about it...
This was an interesting experience that I would recommend you try especially if you like military history. The submarine itself is extremely small inside and rather dificult to get around so its not recommended for people who are claustrphobic or have mobility issues. Otherwise it was a very interesting look into what it was like to be on a submarine during that time. Without paying extra for a guided tour you cannot go into the control room. Overall it was a great experience, and the submarine is located near the harbor so it's in a great location.
A really interesting museum especially with guides who share their knowledge with every visitor and telling stories in a very unique way. Wouldn't recommend it to younger kids since the U-Boat Museum is dealing with history so children could get easily bored so I would recommend going there with people above the age of 14.
This is really cool. You get to walk through a real russion submarine either with it without a tour. It's really narrow so people with claustrophobia might get uncomfortably in there... It's really interesting to see all the old machines and you get a good glimpse of how life on a submarine was. The tour is very good for kids because they get a lot to see in there and even have to climb some ladders and stuff. Check it out!
For ten euros you can go through this original Soviet Tango-class patrol submarine from bow to stern. For four extra euros you can go on a guided tour that gives you much more information about the sub and takes you up into the command bridge (which you can’t do on a self-guided walkthrough). Tours are only in German, but our particular guide happened to know a decent amount of English as well. Much of the sub’s interior has been left authentic (aside from computers the Russians ripped out before selling it), so you swing through hatches and climb up and down gangways just like a real submariner would. You must be flexible and careful. It’s a great experience seeing a piece of Cold War history. A great place to visit for history buffs, navy buffs, and Tom Clancy fans.
