Museum ships

Stories of oceans and home ports

Whether they were sailing the world's oceans or always cruising near their home port - the museum ships anchored in Hamburg could all tell stories of adventures on the high seas. The four-masted barque Peking only returned to Hamburg in 2020 after a long restoration. If you like, you can let yourself be carried away into this world during the tours or even cruises on the ships. The Cap San Diego, for example, offers regular tours.
