If you enjoy "Modern Marvels" on the Science Channel then you will love the time you spend touring Meyer Werft. This is where they make many of the giant cruise ships that people vacation on. The tour is worth the time and fascinating. The downside is that they don't have a regularly scheduled tour in English but it can be... More

If you book the reguar tour, the visitor center is a disappointing experience. There is also a pricey VIP-tour with more information, a closer look at the cruise ships inside of the shipyard. Anyway ... not worth the visit

I can only say one word 'WOW'. The tour of this massive shipyard describes an insight into the building of modern era shipyard and services. You can see building of the massive giant cruise ships here. A must visit if you are in Papenburg.

What a great subject: The wharf where the buil THE cruise ships of the world. How disappointing their visitor center: Totally missing the excitement of the subject: It is nicely designed, but really is missing the right story points. The guide touring you around is telling many interesting facts and stories, but none of this is showed in proper way... More

Definitely a place to go to if you can get some sort of tour. I was very impressed with watching the ship building process.

We toured this factory and really enjoyed it. I love behind the scenes type of attractions , and it was so fun to see where they make some of the world's biggest and best ships. My son was a Disney Castmember and liked the pride they took in building a Disney ship we had sailed on, too. The place was... More

I couldn't find an English tour and so with a small amount of German knowledge I was happy to go on one of the German tours. The idea of allowing tourists to see the construction of the ships is great but the way it is carried out could be improved. I would say the majority of people going there want... More

Meyer Werft have obviously spent a lot of money on their new visitor centre, but the impression is spoiled by having to sit through two very poorly made films. There is very little in the tour to show how a ship is designed and built, and too much emphasis on the luxurious living accommodation on board. For what is in... More

You must get over the fact the tour is in German only and make the best of it. 10:30am and 12:30pm on bus at stop on side of Rathaus. Get tickets ahead of time at Info Center on boat in front of Rathaus--tour lasts about 2 hours--easy to follow along if you cannot handle a little German. Ok to take... More
