Hamburg: International Maritime Museum Entrance

1. Hamburg: International Maritime Museum Entrance

Take a voyage of discovery across nine 'decks' at the impressive International Maritime Museum. Housed inside the oldest surviving warehouse in Hamburg, the museum gives you a comprehensive view of the sea and oceans, and how cultures have explored them throughout the millennia. Meet pirates, find out how captains mastered navigation, look at hundreds of nautical uniforms and connect with Hamburg's important nautical history. The exhibition includes more than 40,000 pieces, making it the world's largest private maritime collection. An absolute highlight of this museum is the floor dedicated to marine biology research. This portion of the exhibit was developed in collaboration with leading scientific institutions and is constantly updated. Research instruments, samples from the sea bed, films taken by diving robots, an actual wall of ice and fascinating underwater audio samples deliver a vivid impression of the seas.

Great trip on the Elbe and in the harbor. We drove through Unsesco World Heritage (old warehouses) and got off there. After visiting the Museum Maritim, we got back on board. New city and concert Elbphilharmonie was explained great and looks great from the water. The captain told entertaining and funny stories. Recommended and a must.

We really liked the actual tour as well as the support on the ship and the very relaxed way of passing on important information in an entertaining way.

Super nice child-friendly and helpful staff. Get funny and interesting information that doesn't get annoying. Absolutely to suggest.

Very informative and funny tour to be recommended to everyone who goes to Hamburg

A nice and interesting place to learn about ships.
