|U-1 at full speed|
When the First World War began in 1914, U-1 was deemed obsolete and was used only for training. On 19 February 1919 it suffered damage from a collision while on a training exercise and was subsequently sold to the Germania Yard foundation. It is now restored and on display at the Deutsches Museum in Munich (see the Deutsches Museum online exhibit).
