The sailing ship was built in Germany as a training ship for the German mercahnt marine, it was called Grossherzog (Grand Duke) Friedrich August.
It was bought by Kristoffer Lehmkuhl (hence the name) in 1921.
It has a proud history making reguilar appearances at the Kieler Woche and it will have pride of place in Bergen Harbour in 2014 for the Tall Ships race.
We could not go onboard, you can get close to her on the wharf though.

My father sailed on this ship as a young man back in the 30's. I remember him talking about it when we were just kids.

Visit onboard this 100 year old bark, is a wonderful pastime, if you get lucky and come on a day where you are allowed to come aboard, and better still if you are able to join a short sailing trip in the Bergen archipelago.

Was a great boat trip on an authentic old sail boat. Turned out to be a total piss-up though. Don't know what the tourists were expecting but they got a whole lot of drunk Norgies in the deal!! Good fun!!
