  • The elegant lines and the snow-white paint give the impression of a yacht more than that of a tracking and cruising steamer. This vehicle served the Hamburg Senate as a state yacht for representation purposes until the beginning of the First World War. After the end of the war, the ship was no longer used and the ship was hung up. It is thanks to the board of the Hamburg Waterways and Shipping Directorate, Konrad Meisel, that the SCHARHÖRN was reactivated as a tour ship in 1925 and returned to Cuxhaven. In the thirties the ship was modernized. The ship was manned by civilian crews until World War II. In the last months of the war, the SCHARHÖRN steamed into the Baltic Sea and was involved in the evacuation of the population and refugees from the ports of Pillau, Hela, Neufahrwasser, Stolpmünde and Saßnitz. The SCHARHÖRN returned to Cuxhaven after the war and was in service until 1971. Attempts were made to keep the SCHARHÖRN as a museum ship. Eventually the ship was sold to Edinburgh. There the ship was no longer maintained and many parts of the equipment that had been well-maintained until then were removed. In a totally neglected condition, the ship was bought back and, with a lot of effort, was restored to its old condition from 1908. Today you can take day trips with the SCHARHÖRN.
