Hamburg Welcome Tour: 29.04.2017 The world’s largest seaworthy museum freighter: The CAP SAN DIEGO in the Port of Hamburg!

In April, Hamburg Welcome Center invites you to an exciting exploration trip to the CAP SAN DIEGO, the world’s largest seaworthy museum freighter!

The world’s largest seaworthy museum freighter: The CAP SAN DIEGO in the Port of Hamburg!

The CAP SAN DIEGO is the last remaining ship of a series of six fast basic cargo ships, which were built in 1961/1962 for the shipping company Hamburg Sued and drove preferably to South America until the end of 1981. Since 2003, the ship is a maritime landmark which has its berth at the “Ueberseebrücke” in the Port of Hamburg today.

During our guided tour in the English language, we will visit the CAP SAN DIEGO from the bridge to the engine room, as well as from the ship hatches to the crew chambers. We will also visit the radio station and learn how communication on ships was handled until the year 2000 – namely with Morse codes! On board of the vessel there is a bistro which offers us in a maritime flair small dishes and refreshments (as self-payers). 

Following our tour you may explore the ship on your own until 06:00 p.m.
