A must see when you are around. There are not that many ships preserved in Germany. This is one of those who still can be seen. There is some public parking spaces near by, but better seek early. The Passat is a four mast flying p liner. Launched at 1911 and saved from wreckage in 1956 by the town of... More

This is unfortunately quite a boring monument for non-afficiaonados- even though there are a lot of helping hands and volunteers at times. BUT - this monument starts talking as soon as you have a chance to stay aboard overnight and sleep in one of the former seamens cabins! The life saver crew working on the nearby beach in Travemünde are... More

SS Passat is a four masted barque. The name means trade wind. It is Germany's last windjammer and sister ship of the SS Pamir, a training ship, which sunk in 1957 of the Azores in a hurricane, with the loss of all but six of the crew. I remember reading about this maritime disaster as a child. For anyone with... More

I am not a sailing fan, actually, I never sailed or did anything similar, the closest thing was probably riding a ferry to some islands but still I found this museum interesting. The price is not very expensive, about 3 euro if I am correct. You can see many pictures and even a video of the days when it was... More

Passat is a four-masted barque. She was built 1911 in Hamburg for the salpeter trade between Europe and South America. Passat was in service as a cargo carrying sailing ship (with interruptions) until 1958. 1959 she became a museum ship in Travemunde. You can walk around the deck and you can visit the cabins under deck. Very interesting are the... More

This is a must go for sailing enthusiasts and people with kids. On board, a thorough and rich exhibition shows all aspects of the fast-sailing transatlantic trade and life on board. Not least, the fotos themselves fill you with awe for the marriners.
