Schulau is an interesting place for all fans of cruiseships and when-ever extra-large cruiseships are arriving at or leaving Hamburg, thousands of people will go there to see the ships from a short distance. Schulau is a small village in the west of Hamburg and plenty of years ago a restaurant had started a service to greet all of the ships,passing by.
Willkomm-Hoeft is a great restaurant with an excellent view on all of the ships passing by and at its ship-station it will show the flags and play the national anthem of the home-port of the ships passing by and they will also announce a message of welcome or fare-well in german and in the language of the ship-registry. Of course plenty of local people will be there, when the biggest cruise-ship in the world is leaving Hamburg !
On my pics : M/S Freedom of the Seas, the biggest cruiseship in the world in july 2006.
In my last picture : M/S VISTAFJORD leaving the port of Hamburg in Schulau . This picture was taken by my mother on my very first day onboard in 1978, when I had just started to work as a diningroom-steward.
Another attraction for tourists of all ages is the Buddelschiff - & Muschel-museum ( museum for bottle-ships and sea-shells). You will find this lovely museum in the basement of the "Schulauer Faehrhaus" and you can also click here, when you like to order some lovely bottle-ships for your home !
The best way to get to Schulau is by S-1 from Hamburg to the terminus Wedel and then go on by bus #489. Wedel & Schulau are still included in the day-tickets of Hamburg and in Hamburg-Card!!
