  • It was worth even to look at the beautiful, well-preserved and squeaky clean ship! The very interesting and informative Museum offers a glimpse into the history of the Rickmer Rickmers, and its builders, the family Rickmers. You can find the son, as a child called Rickmer, front the ship as a figurehead. The nostalgic maritim eingerichtate restaurant offers coffee and cake, as well as hot food. The service was very good, only the Apple Pie left something to be desired.

  • The Museum ship is worth a visit! An interesting exhibition in the ship and a good restaurant can be good to take a lunch break.

  • Sehr schönes, altes Segelschiff. Wir waren im Hidden in Hamburg EscapeQuest und konnten so die schöne Rickmers besuchen und etwas Seemannsgefühl entwickeln.
  • 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.
  • Great ship to look around full of history in a great location on the river
  • Had lunch there on a friday. I ate the currywurst 8.50 euro, wifey had the baked potato with shrimp 11 euro. The shrimp were small but service was good n friendly. If u go see the museum, n you r hungry, go for it.
  • You can explore the ship quite undisturbed and see much. The exhibitions on board are also quite interesting
