Hamburg Museum Port Övelgönne

Hamburg Museum Port Övelgönne


Evidence of North German maritime history

Anyone interested in historic ships should definitely plan a visit to Hamburg’s Övelgönne museum harbour during a city trip to Hamburg. Former commercial watercraft representing the history of northern German shipping are restored here and made accessible to the public. The ships in Germany’s oldest museum harbour date mainly from the period between 1880 and 1930 and can be viewed either from the outside or as part of special guided tours. Special highlights of Hamburg’s Museumshafen Övelgönne are the oldest seagoing lightship in the world and the steam launch Otto Laufer, which was already anchored there when the harbour opened in 1977.
