Schiffsmuseum - Elbeschleppdampfer "Württemberg"
Steamboat Württemberg - a museum ship
After its last cruise on the river Elbe in 1974, the "Württemberg" was moored at the Rothehorn-island and transformed into a museum. For more than 25 years, information on Elbe navigation has been presented to the public in the hull of the steamboat. In addition, the Magdeburger Elbe-Schiffer-Verein (Elbe shipper association) offers guided tours of the steamboat which was in service at the beginning of the 20th century. A guided tour provides visitors with many interesting facts and figures on the history of naval technology and life on board. Every Tuesday at 2pm, the society holds its traditional meeting and guests are always welcome to join the open discussion.
