Sailing ship Gorch Fock I

The sailing ship Gorch Fock I was built in 1933 in Hamburg which was also the home port. The ship was used as sail training ship for cadets. During the second world war the sail training was stopped.

Receptionsup to 400 passengers

The German navy sank the ship in the Strelasund, a narrow water near the German city Stralsund north of Berlin, in order to protect the German property. Finally the ship became a long life under the Soviet and Ukrainian flag. In 2002 the ship was purchased by the Tall-Ship Friends association, got major refits and become moored in Stralsund again.

Unfortunately because present rules for shipping and passenger transport sailing is no more possible. But the ship can be used static moored at a very nice place in the port of Stralsund.

During the summer the ship is open for public visitors every day. Beside that the ship is available to hold receptions and other private and corporate hospitality. For small groups there is the beautiful captain’s salon available. For big groups up to 400 persons there is the huge deck area and the division rooms below deck available.
