Traditional sailing ships in Lübeck’s home harbour
On your voyage of discovery along the banks of the Trave, you will pass the tranquil Museum Harbour on Untertrave. Lovingly restored, traditional sailing ships are lined up here like a row of pearls, and sometimes in pairs when times are busy. With their proud masts, burnished brass and wooden ship planks, they are real gems at the quay and genuine witnesses to another era of shipping. The oldest sailing ship, the Nordic yacht “Norden” was built in 1870. Each one of these historical sailing ships has its own story to tell. All are in perfect condition. The owners have restored their “old tubs” in years of painstaking work - a true labour of love.
