Deutsches Schiffahrtsmuseum

Experiencing and Learning at the German Maritime Museum

Already the imposing ships make the long trip to the DSM worth while: the Hanseatic cog of of 1380 – discovered at the bottom of the River Weser and rescued only through a restoration process of many decades –, the boat fleets dating from the Middle Ages to the present, and the deep-sea and coastal fleets in the museum harbour. These vessels join the ship models and navigation instruments, the weapons and apparatuses and many other originals to recount the suspenseful history of German shipping in times of war and peace. Past and present-day activity on ships and in harbours thus come to life. Whaling and deep-sea fishing, rescue services and the German Navy, windjammers, container ships and pleasure craft are just a few of the many topics highlighted. And how satisfying it is to learn more about navigation and shipbuilding, the tides, the poles and the oceans!
