Full description
Go on an imaginary journey to the 1960s and 70s, across the Atlantic Ocean to Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires and back again. Experience life as a lookout on the bridge or stand deep within the Machine Room to feel the steady pulse of the engines. Relax with the passengers in the saloon to the sound of light music while on a fun-filled voyage to South America. Cap San Diego is the largest civil museum ship in the world. It is the last surviving ship in a series of six fast general cargo ships, which were built in 1961/62 for the shipping company Hamburg South and drove to South America until the end of 1981. Hamburg's unique maritime monument has been a museum ship since 1988 and can be visited from bridge to hatch and from heart to head. During your self-guided tour, watch the documentary "A Suitcase Full of Hope - Emigration Port of Hamburg" about the fate of emigrants between 1850 and 1930. In hatch 2, find the permanent exhibition "General Cargo and Container Handling," which clearly documents the history of sea freight transport from 1960 to today with many historical images and explanatory texts.

    Wer 2-3 Stunden Zeit hat und sich für die Seefahrt interessiert, sollte für den Stückgutfrachter Cap San Diego auf jeden Fall einen Besuch einplanen! Die Kartenreservierung online ist ratsam, um in den augenblicklichen Corona-Zeiten sicher zu gehen. Für das große Schiff mit den umfangreichen Informationen ist die angegebene Besuchszeit je nach Interesse erforderlich. Die Besichtigung der Maschinenräume über mehrere Stockwerke ist unter anderem beeindruckend wie auch die Lagerung des Stückgutes im Vergleich zu den heutigen Containerschiffen. Hat uns viel Spaß gemacht, ist kurzweilig und unbedingt zu empfehlen!
