In Bremerhaven, the ship will be the center of attention at Bremerhaven Maritime Days with over 350,000 visitors and 80 different ships, an event that attracts sailing enthusiasts and professional sailers from all over the world. 

As part of the Maritime Days, coming on board the Götheborg is free of charge during this stopover. Please check our opening times below.

We were scheduled to leave Bremerhaven at 18:00, 21 August, but have changed departure time to 07:15 in the morning, 22 August instead, due to weather conditions.

The visit takes about an hour. 

Welcome on board!

On board Götheborg you will visit the beautiful weather deck with the helm, capstan and ship’s bell. Sundeck offers great views of the ship and masts, and down on gun deck there are ten impressive cannons. Don’t miss the two pieces from the original ship, one piece by the historical cupboard with porcelain and chalk pipes on gun deck, and the other one recessed into the helm.

We have station guiding on board when in port. That means that you follow a marked route around the ship and the ship’s deckhands are stationed in different places around the ship, ready to tell you about the ship, sailing on board and the great Asia Expedition. Come prepared with all your questions!

Shop and Exhibition

Next to the ship you will find our shop where you can buy souvenirs from your visit, as well as an exhibition about the history of the original Götheborg, the building of the replica and the current expedition. Welcome!
