  • We visited the lighthouse - the steps are rather steep and narrow - and got a short but interesting overview of its history and how such a lighthouse was operated. And we visited the submarine and followed a audio tour explaining the working of the submarine and the daily life on board of a submarine. Interesting but a bit long.
  • Really interesting place and a rarity to get all close and personal with a more recent type of submarine (not WW2). The English audio guide was great, telling an engaging story while explaining the workings of the boat and live of the crew onboard. Recommend combining this with a visit of the lighthouse.
