"Poeler Kogge" - Sailing ship

The biggest shipwreck of the Hanseatic era

The recovered shipwreck of the island Poel is the biggest known from the Hanseatic Period. The examined pine wood was dated back to 1354. The archeological evidence is given through the work on comparable “Baltic cogs” used by the Vikings and Slavs. They were used as cargo ships in the North- and Baltic Sea. The start of building a replica was in 2001 with the shipwreck being used as a draft. Since 2006 the Poeler cog WISSEMARA is the ambassador of the City of Wismar, letting Trainees and sailors letting part of the experience. It is one of the biggest European replicas of a cog.
