Summer Wanderer: the second edition. Step on board the Oosterschelde for a 20-day, COVID-proof journey. Make your own bubble with trainees and crew and enjoy carefree sailing. There will be everything you need on board to make sure you do not have to go into a harbour for the duration of the trip iif COVID doesn’t allow (hopefully that will not be the case, though!) The route is flexible and depends on the weather and other conditons. Nothing is set in stone, except the fact that you will arrive safely in Kiel after three weeks of sailing. This journey is subject to regular booking conditions.
Bremerhaven is one of the most important German ports, playing a crucial role in Germany’s trade. The town was founded in 1827, but settlements in the vicinity were settled as early as the 12th century. The main attractions for tourists are found at the Havenwelten and include the German Emigration Center and the German Maritime Museum, featuring the Hansekogge, a vintage cog dating from 1380, excavated in Bremen in 1962, and the historical harbour with a number of museum ships.
Kiel is a German port town on the Baltic coast, widely known for its yearly ‘Kiel week’ – the biggest yearly regatta in the world! Many thousands of boats and ships of all kinds and eras take part in the parade. Kiel Week is also a festival, Volksfest and fair as well as a maritime event. But Kiel offers more: a slew of museums (zoological, geological, historical, fine art, industrial, and military museums), a city centre with relaxed atmosphere, and the water and shores of the Kieler Fjord.
