Hamburg 19 – 23 May, 2023

The fifth stopover on the European Tour 2023 is Hamburg. You can find us moored at Überseebrücke in Mitte. We will be open to the public on Saturday and Sunday, the 20th and 21st of May, as well as a few hours the 23rd of May. Welcome on board! (The other days and times in port are booked for private events and not open to the public.)  

Hamburg was especially selected as key stopover on the European Tour, as the Götheborg's owner, the Swedish based logistics company Greencarrier Group, recently opened up new offices for Greencarrier Consolidators in Hamburg.

Departure is scheduled to 08:00 the 24th of May (instead of the 23rd).

Visit the ship

Come on board and visit the ship! Learn about the history of the Swedish East India Company and the adventures of the original Götheborg that sailed three times to Asia. Hear modern tales of sailing an 18th century ship, feel the authentic atmosphere, and listen to everything from captivating stories to the tremendous art of shipbuilding.

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.

Come prepared with all your questions!

Station guiding

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 European Tour 2023. 

Where to find us

Götheborg of Sweden will be moored at Überseebrücke in Mitte. Come and see us from the quayside or visit us during our opening hours. Welcome!
