"Le Redoutable, a unique visit" Cherbourg Things to Do Tip by Pavlik_NL
Cherbourg Things to Do: 34 reviews and 76 photos
Want to do something you cannot do anywhere else in the world? Next to the museum Cité de la Mer and actually a part of this museum, lies in a dock, the first French nuclear submarine "Redoutable" is open for visitors. This is a unique fact, as nowhere else in the world you can visit a nuclear submarine. Submarines, and especially the nuclear modern classes, are true doomsday machines. Sneaking underwater til close to the enemies coast, they can launch rockets with nuclear bombs onto enemy targets in a matter of minutes. The enemies respons time is decimated, securing a homefront attack. To witness these terrible warcrafts up close is incredibly impressive (and for me emotional as well, as it shows yet again how stupid mankind actually is).
Directions: Follow the signs to "Cité de la Mer" in Cherbourg town and book the visit to "Le Redoutable" within the ticket of the museum.
