Cap San Diego

A piece of the hamburg harbour panorama

The White Swan of the South Atlantic - The "Cap San Diego" was built in 1961 as a cargo ship and has been a museum ship with a fixed berth at the Überseebrücke in Hamburg since 1986.

Her elegant silhouette is part of Hamburg's harbour panorama, as are the Speicherstadt and the Michel. However, the world's largest cargo ship is still navigable and leaves Hamburg Harbour several times a year for various destinations. The museum ship can be visited daily from 10:00 - 18:00 o'clock in all details.

In addition, the freighter is currently showing the documentation "A suitcase full of hope - Hamburg emigrant port" about the fate of emigrants between 1850 and 1930. You can spend the night on board in one of the originally preserved four single and four double passenger cabins as well as in the Captain's Chamber.

The CAP SAN DIEGO is not only a living museum ship, it also offers a beautiful setting for corporate and private parties, seminars and lectures, as well as cultural events. The "Cap San Diego Klabauternacht" rounds off the cultural programme on board. The on-board bistro offers specialities and refreshments in maritime flair. Often a year the motto is: Cast off and the Cap San Diego takes passengers on a trip. Visitors then gain a unique insight into ship technology: all areas of the ship are open to passengers. Experience ship technology up close and let the crew tell you interesting stories.
