Greifswald Museum Harbour
Gaff ketch and schooner, sea cutter and ram ship, cruiser and holly boat - the museum harbour in Greifswald (which was founded in 1991 in the style of the museum harbours in Flensburg and Hamburg) showcases around 45 old ships. The museum is a response to the rising interest in historic ships and traditional seamanship.
The museum harbour is part of the old town harbour; it stretches from the Steinbecker bridge to the old granary and adds to the maritime flair of the Hanseatic city. The oldest ship that is showcased in the museum harbour is the “Pommerland” Zeesen boat from the year 1880. At www.museumshafen-greifswald.de you can find a list of all the ships moored here. 15 of them offer excursions and sailing trips. You can also join a sailing trip during the annual Gaffelrigg event.
And by the way: On request, the Greifswald museum harbour association organises guided group tours of the museum harbour and the museum shipyard, where old ships are restored.
