Lieutenant Commander Adalbert Schnee (31 December 1913 – 4 November 1982) was a Korvettenkapitän with the Kriegsmarine during World War II. He sailed with the U-6, U-60, U-121, U-201 and U-2511, sinking twenty-one ships on seven patrols, for a total of 90.847 tons of Allied shipping.

In September 1944 he took over the command of the new "Elektroboot" U-2511, the first Type XXI U-boat to go on patrol. On this patrol in the last days of the war, in the hours immediately after the cease-fire orders on 4 May 1945 Korvettenkapitän Schnee was in the position to sink the British cruiser HMS Norfolk. His Leitender Ingenieur on this patrol was Gerd Suhren.
