Short Trip to Bremen – Beck`s ship&co

A visit to the Beck`s-ship `Alexander von Humboldt´ is worthwhile

„Alexander von Humboldt is a German sailing ship originally built in 1906 by the German shipyard AG Weser at Bremen as the lightship Reserve Sonderburg. She was operated throughout the North and Baltic Seas until being retired in 1986. Subsequently, she was converted into a three masted barque by the German shipyard Motorwerke Bremerhaven and was re-launched in 1988 as Alexander von Humboldt“ (Wikipedia)

The Beck`s ship

Green sails were installed as a marketing tool for advertising the German brewery Beck`s.
