Alexander von Humboldt II:
Lubeck (DE) - Wismar (DE)

31 May - 05 June 2015

Set your eyes on the horizon and explore the waters of the Baltic Sea with the Alexander von Humboldt II. Windseekers from all over Europe will join this magnificent Tall Ship for a Journey that encompasses fun, adventure, and new experiences while you brave the waves and battle the elements. Learn to set and trim the sails, pick up a tip or two about navigation, and help out with jobs on deck and below to keep the Alexander von Humboldt II in ship-shape. Meanwhile there will be time to get to know your fellow Windseekers better. Share a meal together, and learn to work as a team to execute sail manoeuvres perfectly. Go where the wind takes you. Wherever that is, that’s where you want to be. Open to all ages, minimum age 14 years.

Ports

Lübeck is a large port town on the river Trave, close to the Baltic Sea. The city is famous for its old architecture and many tourists visit it each year. Did you know that marzipan was invented here? Discover Lübeck on foot or rent a bicycle to make your way through the medieval streets of the old town. In the old harbor you will find the Lisa von Lübeck, a reconstruction of a Hanseatic 15th century caravel. If you want to escape the city, the nearby Palinger heide is a nice nature park.

Wismar is a harbor on the Baltic Sea with a huge market square, lined with 14th century buildings. Wismar is a popular sailing destination, so expect to find loads of ‘yachties’ here. Go and discover the town on foot and enjoy the vibe of the old harbor. The Nicolaikirche and Kirche of St. Georgen both come highly recommended. Nearby you’ll find rural areas that can be fun to explore. And In the Baltic area a good beach is never far away, so go for a swim or find a place for windsurfing.
