UB-29 was a German U-boat (submarine) that served in World War I. It belonged to the UB II type of submarines, which were used primarily for coastal patrols and reconnaissance missions. UB-29 was launched on June 29, 1915, and commissioned on September 18, 1915, under the command of Kapitänleutnant Herbert Pustkuchen.

On December 13, 1916, UB-29 was sunk in the North Sea by a British mine off the coast of Belgium. All 22 crew members on board perished in the sinking.

The wreck of UB-29 was discovered by a team of divers led by Belgian diver Tomas Termote in July 2017. The submarine was found at a depth of about 82 feet (25 meters) off the coast of Belgium. The wreck was in relatively good condition, with the conning tower and deck guns still visible. The discovery of UB-29 provided valuable insight into World War I-era submarines and contributed to the broader historical understanding of naval warfare during that time.
