Back outside this "Seehund Midget Submarine S 622" begs to have its photo taken.  The interpretive sign in English tells us that the German Navy began building these small 2-man subs in early 1944.  "At the end of World War II, French naval forces came upon several abandoned Seehunds and decided to salvage four of them. ... this small fleet of French midgets counted 858 missions before being decommissioned in 1953."
