Join Eye of the Wind for this 5 day voyage from Hamburg to Kiel as you voyage inland, crossing the Northern tip of Germany. The perfect trip for beginners!
This five day voyage on board Eye of the Wind takes you from Hamburg, along the 100km canal to Kiel. The canal, built in 1895, not only helped ships save time in getting from the North Sea to the Baltic Sea, but also saved lives of sailors and their ships in preventing them from navigating the rough seas around the point of Denmark. This is a route that cannot be undertaken by most modern cruise ships – the bridges are too low – yet it is an astonishing piece of German engineering that many people want to experience. To travel it by tall ship is a unique experience, sailing the route on a vessel that the canal was built to cater for. Further details of the ship will be available closer to the time of the voyage.

With incredible amounts of character, Eye of the Wind has all the modern amenities and an authentic interior, with a teak maritime décor. Oozing with maritime history, the opportunity to sail on Eye of the Wind is one in a lifetime. This beautiful ship is as eye-catching as they get and she has even featured in several movies, including White Squall, due to her breath-taking appearance as a 1911 brig.
This windjammer offers luxurious holidays on board, cruising some of the most stunning locations in the world.
Although the ship has a large, capable engine, traditional sailing is naturally the preferred mode of travel so there is plenty to get stuck into on deck. The crew are extremely experienced and ready to teach you the workings of a classic tall ship, so no prior knowledge is necessary. Join the crew at any number of the large maritime festivals they appear at, cruise the European coast, or relish some winter sun and climb aboard for their voyages in the Caribbean – including a transatlantic crossing back from the Caribbean to Portugal.
Thanks to the 6 luxurious cabins, all with ensuite bathrooms, Eye of the Wind can sleep a total of 16 guests ensuring ocean passages can be travelled in true comfort. A large dining area, library and sun deck offer a multitude of different spaces to unwind and to get to know your fellow guests and crew.
