    The Cap San Diego belongs to the Überseebrücke, as the Rickmer Rickmers to the jetties. Both ships determine the picture of the harbor promenade. It is considered one of the most beautiful freighters in the world and reminds of the time before the invention of the container. When the port of Hamburg was still a jumble of barges, chaff and general cargo.

    The CAP SAN DIEGO is the largest, roadworthy museum cargo ship in the world, with berth at the Überseebrücke in Hamburg. They also rightly call you the white swan of Hamburg. I was very fascinated by this ship, definitely worth a visit

    The CAP SAN DIEGO is the last surviving ship of a series of six fast general cargo carriers, which were built in 1961/62 for the shipping company Hamburg Süd and preferably drove to South America until the end of 1981.

    The Cap San Diego is a discarded general cargo freighter and is located as a museum ship on the Überseebrücke in the port of Hamburg. The White Swan, as the ship is called because of its snow-white side wall, is one of the landmarks on the jetties.
