Many people have to spend the holidays away from their families. How much the Christmas tree plays a role can be seen daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
From November 15 to January 14, 2007, the exhibition “Christmas at Sea”, designed by the Nordmanntanne Information Center, will be shown on the museum ship “Rickmer Rickmers” in the Port of Hamburg. Every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., visitors can get an idea of seafaring life during the Christian holidays.
What to do when Christmas Eve approaches and there is no tree? What's on the menu? How do greetings to the sailors look like? And how do they sound? 70 informative panels answer such questions. In addition, an old radio broadcasts greetings from the Norddeich radio from the 1950s, and a documentary shows Christmas on the research vessel Meteor.
Children have the opportunity until December 10th to send the captain of the “MS Europa” a Christmas greeting card. If you also add a blank postcard, you will receive a Christmas greeting from afar. In the NDR radio show “Greetings from board” on Christmas Eve, Captain Hagen Damaschke thanked the children personally.
The exhibition costs 3 euros for an adult, schoolchildren and students pay 2.50 euros and children 2 euros. Groups and HamburgCard holders receive a discount. Further information can be found at www.rickmer-rickmers.de.
