    The Hermine is a German Gaffelschoner built in 1904 and the only still preserved entirely of wood type of this type in Germany. She served first as Hermione, from 1907 as Emma and from 1934 as Swedish Wega in coastal shipping in the North and Baltic Seas. In 1979 she was rediscovered in Sweden and transported to Hamburg, but could not be made seaworthy again and stands as a monument in Cuxhaven.

    From 1904 to 1907 Bardenhagen used the Hermine in coastal trading, but sold it after three years and stayed on land. The new owner gave the ship the name of his own wife Emma. The cargo ship continued to be used in coastal trading until he sold it to Sweden in 1934.

    On a nearby park bench next to the ship you have a beautiful view of the Cuxhaven water tower and a small town pond!

    In September 1904 the gaff schooner "Hermine" was launched in Hamburg for the first time. Hermione changed hands several times over the years until she sank in the ice in late 1982. It was recovered with great effort and given to the city of Cuxhaven as a gift. After the repair, it was installed in the current place, where it has since contributed to the maritime urban design.

    Here at the Schleusenpriel you can take a wonderful break. You can find some nice benches with a nice view e.g. to the Cuxhaven water tower (out of order), here you can also find the "Hermione" gaff schooner built in 1904, the ship is now a memorial and is "on dry land".
