Hamburg harbour picnic

Just arrived at Hamburg harbour after a long car trip.
On the other side of River Elbe there are several dry docks of BLOHM + VOSS dockyard.

Currently the U-434 submarine, formerly known as the Soviet B-515, was relocated to this part of Hamburg harbour.
The Soviet submarine B-515 was a Tango-class submarine  of the Soviet and Russian Navies. She was built in 1976 and remained in active service until 2000. She is currently docked in Hamburg and is open to the public as a museum exhibit. The submarine is sometimes referred to as U-434, which derives from the pennant number painted on the vessel.

Not the worst place for a picnic, isn't it?
