Rickmer Rickmers

I can't say the name of this ship really rolls of the tongue, but it's better then the name it had for a while: Max.

The Rickmers is a huge, three masted ship - a barque, technically - that is now a floating museum in Hamburg's historic harbour. That third mast makes it bigger than the brigantine Swan fan Makkum that I caught in Italy in 2009. I was able to get a lot closer to the Rickmers though, as our harbour boat tour started basically right underneath the big ship's bow. It's really well cared for considering it was built in 1896.

The menacing clouds provided a dramatic backdrop but managed to hold off raining until we finished our tour. Very nice of them.
