Hamburg's floating landmark recalls the age of the large windjammers. Named after the youngest grandchild of the shipyard founder, it was launched in Bremerhaven in 1896 as a full-rigged ship made of steel.

    Today, it is the pride and joy of the RICKMER RICKMERS Foundation to operate and maintain the museum ship – with no public funding .

    The deck has been clad with wood, the masts and rigging made complete, the engine room has been equipped and ballast has been taken on board. In the restored crew and officers' quarters, visitors are given a glimpse of the rough life of the seafarer; a steam engine along with one of the Krupp diesel engines can be seen in the engine room. Together, the three types of marine propulsion of the past 100 years - wind, steam and diesel - are vividly illustrated for visitors.

    Special exhibitions on maritime topics, informative wall charts about the ship's history, as well as a restaurant on board, make for an irresistible visit.
