Tips

  • Rheinschiffer ⚓

    The Aalschokker was built in 1937 and drove until 2001 for about forty years on the Rhine as an eel catcher.
    Now the cargo ship is rebuilt as a museum ship and shows the visitors how the fish was caught in the last century. The pier is located opposite the Klappertorstraße, where eels were still smoked until 2007.

    The Aalschokker went fishing for 40 years near Neuss until the city of Monheim bought it for 2000, oo € uro. Now it is being rebuilt as a museum ship.

    Museum ship from 1937
    From spring, the Neanderland is enriched by a museum: in a museum ship, an elevated Aalschokker from 1937, the history of eel fishing on the Rhine in Monheim am Rhein is told in an interactive, exciting and authentic way. The "Fiat Voluntas" was used for the eel fishery for almost 40 years on the Rhine near Neuss until the turn of the millennium. Another attraction on the Rhine is the pier, which opened in 2017, with its 70-meter-long jetty, where ships will stop off "on the promenade of the Neanderland".

    "... The Piwipper Böötchen has been sailing between Dormagen and Monheim since 2012.
    (By Heike Schoog)
    The queue at the Monheim jetty is growing. But nobody is allowed on the boat yet. The captain isn't here yet. “It'll be the same,” says Heiner Müller-Krumbhaar, reassuring the group that wants to go on a joint excursion to Dormagen. “It is seldom that I'm there earlier than the captain,” says the chairman of the Piwipper Böötchen association. And there he comes. Wolfgang Hoffmann (66), black trousers, white shirt, sailor's hat. He is a Monheim veteran, for whom the Aalschokker, who anchors next to the pier in front of Monheim, has become the second home. So he usually doesn't have to go far to the little boat that is tied to the new, stately pier, right next to the fire brigade's lifeboat. ... "
