    The Baltic Sea spa Travemünde houses one of the most beautiful sailing ships in the country, the four-masted barque Passat. Since 1960, the 115-meter-long Passat lies at the mouth of the Trave and has long since become the landmark of the Baltic Sea spa. In 2011, the old lady celebrated her 100th birthday. Since 1978, the four-masted barque Passat is a listed building. The successful and over seven million Mark expensive renovation of the Passat took place from 3 August 1997 to 16 May 1998. Today, the Passat is rented by the School and Sports Department of the Hanseatic City of Lübeck year-round to school classes, sports clubs, youth groups and other promoters. A total of 104 berths and three function rooms are available. In the summer months you can visit the ship regularly. A small cafeteria offers snacks and drinks in between.

    The Passat is a four-masted steel barque, which was launched as one of the legendary Flying P-liners of the shipping company F. Laeisz in 1911 at Blohm & Voss and is now in the port of Travemünde.

    She was first used as a cargo ship by F. Laeisz between Europe and South America. Owned by Gustaf Erikson, it served mainly for wheat transport between Australia and Europe (see wheat regatta). The then captain was Otto Piper. In the 1950s, she was used as a cargo sail training ship between Europe and South America's East Coast. Overall, she rounded 39 times the notorious because of its weather conditions Cape Horn (so-called Cape Hoornier). In 1957, the ship was decommissioned due to declining profitability.

    Today, the Passat serves as a museum, accommodation, venue and breakwater. (Source: Wikipedia)

    Beautiful old cargo ship, which is today among other conference hotel with overnight accommodations and also offers other offers. Information at

    The Passat is a four-masted steel barque, one of the legendary Flying P-Liners from Blohm & Voss. The "flying" stands for the outstanding speed of 18 knots, which the PASSAT achieved with 4,600 square meters of sail area on its masts up to 56 meters high under favorable conditions. It must have been a feast for the eyes. I have already seen the sister ship the Kruzenshtern full of admiration under sail and the Passat must have looked something like that
    The price of the fully equipped PASSAT was then 680,000 marks, today it is a museum ship
