Rickmer Rickmers, Hamburg

4.3
Hop aboard Rickmer Rickmers, and take a trip to Hong Kong, get captured by Portugal, and take part in World War I (under the British flag). This historic sailing ship, permanently moored as a museum, tells the tale of the ship's varied history, beginning in 1896. Explore the crew chambers and officers' rooms for a glimpse the old seafaring lifestyle (but if you choose to dine on board, it will be in modern style on the second deck's restaurant). Temporary exhibits throughout the year always bring an added bonus. Use our Hamburg trip planning tool to add Rickmer Rickmers and other attractions to your Hamburg vacation plans.

  • It is a favourite with tourists and children, moored forever in the port and you can visit it inside and admire the lovely woodwork, amazing riggings and listen to it history.  more »
  • From this historic ship I've seen the parade at the HAfengeburtstag and I'm always happy.

  • Very nice called steel cargo sailing ship, which is worth a visit. Today a Museum and Memorial ship.

  • On board of a real "Windjammer", which was fully renovated and turned into an interesting museum. You can learn about the history of the ship, but also about the development of the whole sea transport industry. The restaurant is also worth a visit.
  • I do not have a particular passion for ships, but it was a nice trip for around one or one and a half hours. There are plenty of options to get a discount and many of them can even be combined. You can see the crew chambers on the one side and the officers' rooms on the other, and you can learn a lot about the history of this particular ship.
  • The first Portuguese Sagres sailing ship
  • A museum ship at the pier of the Elbe. You can pay to walk around the ship or go to a restaurant located below deck. Also below deck are exhibitions detailing the history of the ship and other ships from similar eras. Unfortunately, all information is written exclusively in German, which makes the museum a lot less interesting for non-german speakers. Even though German is my native language, For me the engine room was the most interesting part of the museum ship, even though I'm a native German speaker. Overall, I wouldn't recommend the museum, unless you have never seen such a ship from the inside, or you have a keen interest in the history of the ships like this in their time.
  • Lovely tourist attraction Lots of information and exhibits.

Where to stay in Hamburg

The most dynamic part of the city is the St. Pauli area, also known as Kiez. This is where tourists and locals brush shoulders among the many bars, shops, and sites. Jungfernsteig, or Neuer Wall, is an upmarket area with brand name shopping and luxury dining. Consider a stay in the bohemian quarters of Altona or the Sternschanze/Schanzenviertel. These areas burst with character and offer out-of-the-ordinary shopping and dining experiences at lower prices.
