A ship that has seen the world

The museum ship RICKMER RICKMERS in the Hamburg harbour is a floating monument reminding of the times of the great windjammers in Hamburg, open daily for visitors, except from Mondays.

For many decades the RICKMER RICKMERS has been presenting insights into the daily life of sailors over the centuries. Varying exhibitions on maritime themes have delighted guests of the museum ship as has its own on-board restaurant with an exquisite kitchen.

A ship that has been around the world

The mainsail vessel RICKMER RICKMERS was built in 1896 and has been a floating landmark in the harbour of the Hanseatic city since 1983. The ship has had an adventurous history, the overseas expeditions and overseas voyages  have not always ended happily.
The changing exhibitions are particularly focussed on the diversity of life and work at sea. The ship itself is the largest museum piece. Here, for example, the three types of propulsion of the last 100 years - wind, steam and diesel - are illustrated to the visitor.
You should not miss the activity parts of the RICKMER RICKMERS: if you dare to climb the rigs thirty- five metre high above the waterline you will be donated with a spectacular view. Well-experienced trainers will make your climbing journey a safe one. A further attraction are the Escape Rooms of „Hidden Hamburg“ where you will be challenged to solve the riddles on this massive mainsail vessel.
