Historical Images

Here are some historical photographs of the Wappen Von Hamburg in 1955 and 1956 donated by our new friend,  Cai Rönnau.

The Wappen Von Hamburg has an extremely rich past and will serve as a museum with images, artifacts, and extensive documentation regarding the history of Luxury Liners.

  1. Any plans to restore the rear mast?

  2. I grew up in Hamburg and my first “sea advanture” was some time between 1961 and 1963 when my parents took me to the little North Sea island of Helgoland on board the “Wappen von Hamburg” I always wondered what became of this elegant little liner! It is so nice to see that she is being restored to her former beauty. I will certainly visit her when she is open to the public.

  3. I first saw this ship on eBay a few years back and I became interested in it. I’ve tried to follow it on the Internet. I glad you are restoring it. I would love to see it one day. Nice job.
