Go and visit Rickmer Rickmers - an old sailingboat docked permanently in the port of Hamburg. This great ship is a museum nowadays and has also a great restaurant onboard !
SS Rickmer Rickmers was built in 1896 in Bremerhafen/Germany. It is made of steal.
Since 1987 the ship may be visited daily The ship is 97 metres long, 12,20 metres wide and is 6 metres below the water, the ship was run with a crew of 23 and the captain. At first the Rickmer Rickmers sailed regularly to Hongkong and brought rice and bamboo to Bremerhafen. Lateron it was a school-ship for Portugal, beeing called "SAGRES"
In 1958 this ship could win a big regatta against the norwegian school-ship "Christian Radich" but it was finally set out of service in 1962.
In 1983 the ship was bought by a group called "Windjammer für Hamburg" and restored completely !
