But she is far from being unused: Today, visitors can spend the night on board. The cabins on the ship have been modernly refurbished and equipped - so you don't have to do without any comfort.

There are two-person and four-person cabins, where you can feel completely at ease. Snuggle up in one of the cozy beds and look through the porthole at the calm water. Or be sociable, let yourself be cooked on deck and enjoy a glass of wine. This is where cozy comfort meets lively city life. More information about the world-famous ship with the green sails can be found at here.


Maritime flair in the ship cabins in the Klabauter bed

Those who have yet to learn how to sail, can be set to the Boats of host Benjamin and his family at least dream of a circumnavigation of the globe. The Klabauterbett fleet, which is anchored in Bremen, comprises a total of three boats: While the flagship Ronja can accommodate up to 18 people, the other two are much more comfortable and private.

The Danish coastal cruiser lady Jule captivates with its old wooden panels. Since 2018, the sailing ship Kaja has also been part of the property of Benjamin and his wife Katharina. She is in great shape and offers plenty of space for two as well as the opportunity to simply set sail and explore the surrounding area of Bremen. And since October 2020, the old barge, the Glückauf, also belongs to the fleet. So if you have a sailing license, you should bring it with you and rent a place on Kaja. Then nothing stands in the way of the night beyond the harbor.
