    The White Swan of the South Atlantic - the "Cap San Diego" was built in 1961 as a freight ship and has been permanently anchored at the Überseebrücke in Hamburg since 1986 as a museum ship. Its elegant silhouette is as much a part of Hamburg's harbour panorama as the Speicherstadt and St. Michaelis Church.

    But the largest freighter in the world is still seaworthy and departs from the Port of Hamburg for a variety of destinations several times a year. The museum ship can be visited up close each day from 10.00am to 6.00pm.

    The freighter is also currently showing the documentary film "Ein Koffer voller Hoffnung- Auswandererhafen Hamburg" (A suitcase full of hope - the emigration port of Hamburg) about the fate of emigrants between 1850 and 1930. Overnight accommodation is also available on board in one of the four preserved, original single and double passenger cabins, as well as in the captain's quarters.

    The CAP SAN DIEGO is not just a living museum ship, it also offers a beautiful location for corporate and private celebrations, seminars and lectures, as well as cultural events. The "Cap San Diego "Klabauternacht"" completes the cultural programme on board. The on-board bistro offers specialities and refreshments with a maritime flair. Several times a year, the motto is: "Cast off" and the Cap San Diego undertakes voyages with passengers. Visitors get a unique insight into ship technology: All areas of the ship can be accessed by passengers. Experience ship technology up close and listen to the crew telling you about things of interest.
