Travemünde Photos

From: Travemünde, Germany



The Passat is a four-masted barque that sailed around Cape Horn 39 times and around the world twice during a long career as a freighter and training ship. The ship, which entered service in 1911, was retired in 1959 and became a floating museum in 1966. It was fully restored in 1998 at a cost of DM 7.2 million or about 3.7 million euros.

Passat is open to visitors from Easter to October, with hours varying according to the season.
