Flying P-Liner Passat Museum Ship
The Passat Windjammer

Passat is a German four-masted steel barque and one of the Flying P-Liners, the famous sailing ships of the German shipping company F. Laeisz. The name Passat means trade wind in German. Passat is one of the last surviving windjammers. During its long service, the Passat sailed Cape Horn no fewer than 39 times and circumnavigated the globe in 1932 and 1948. The Passat has been anchored in the Travemünde port since 1960 and has since become one of the city's most famous landmarks. It is now a youth hostel, venue, and museum ship.
