With a length of almost 100 meters and a weight of over 4000 tons, the Russian submarine U-461 is the largest conventional boat ever built. In the narrow corridors and chambers of the steel colossus reaching under 6 floors, everyone can tell from the goose bumps of the neighbor that this is not for the faint of heart. Breathtaking simulations take you to the edge of imagination.
It is certainly one of the most spectacular and unusual destinations on Usedom - the largest submarine museum in the world. Among other things, a Russian submarine of the Juliett class with the identification U-461, which was in service for many years, can be visited. At the same time, insights are given into the everyday life of a military submarine and events during the Cold War. The submarine was put into service in 1965 and was mainly used in the Baltic Sea and the North Atlantic until it was decommissioned after the collapse of the USSR and came to Peenemünde via detours.
