Research in the archive
Researching in the archive is possible for researchers, relatives of U-boat-men and members of the FTU from Monday to Friday also from March to December. It is necessary in every case to make an appointment with the Archive. There is a nominal daily research fee as well as fees for reproducing documents and photographs.

If you have any question about please send it to the postal address of the archive. Please only contact the archive if you have serious questions and are willing to donate the agreed amount to the archive. A query to the Archiv requires a minimum research fee of 20 Pounds (Sterling) or its equivalent in foreign currency, to be paid in the currency of the country concerned as changing cheques at the bank diminishes the value of the cheque very considerably.
