"Ordinary seaman patent"

Shipping to touch, visit and experience.

Also 2019 landlubbers can pass a test for “Ordinary seaman patent”. Naturally under the special guidance of a true sea bear. As a reward for the passed test you will get a “Toten Heizer”.  Afterwards  you can visit the historical steam–ice breaker “Wal”. In the German Maritime Museum the worldwide unique Hansekogge from the year  will amaze the landlubber.
