Guide „Schiffe kieken“

In the footsteps of the seafarers

The two-hour tour begins on a real lifesaver, the deep-sea salvage tug "Seefalke". Within sight are the Technik-Museum submarine "Wilhelm Bauer", one of the most modern of its time, the lightship "Elbe 3" and the "Rau IX". The ninth of this series of ships was whaling between 1937 and 1939. In the next harbor basin, the "Whale" with its bulbous hull is moored, which used to ensure that one of the most important shipping lanes remained ice-free. The tour culminates with a visit to the last German full-rigged ship launched in Bremerhaven in 1927, the "Schulschiff Deutschland".
