Kapitan Borchardt:
Kolobrzeg (PL) - Hamburg (DE)

27 April - 05 May 2016

Sail along on this beautiful classic sailing ship along from Poland to Germany at the Eastsea. When the wind is well and the direction okay the ship will have time for some stops or anghoring. Each day will be different. Open to all ages, minimum age 15 years.


"Kołobrzeg" literally means "by the shore" in Polish. It is located on the Parsęta River on the the Baltic Sea, in north-western Poland. The city has historical monuments to visit. Kolobrzeg is a popular tourist destination for Poles, Germans and Danish people. Enjoy the beach or go biking on the bike path along the seaside to Podczele. Visit the Gallery of Modern Art in the town hall. Or relax and have a drink in a beer garden.

The port of Hamburg, on the river Elbe, is the second largest port in Europe. Hamburg has more than 40 theatres, 60 museums and 100 music venues and clubs. Hamburg was awarded the title of European Green Capital for 2011. Hamburg is noted for several festivals and regular events. Hafengeburtstag is a funfair to honor the birthday of the port of Hamburg with a party and a ship parade. Christmas markets in December are held at the Hamburg Rathaus square, among other places.
