The Cap San Diego

Celebrating in a ship’s belly

The Cap San Diego  has been a museum ship in Hamburg since 1988. But its elegant silhouette is as much a part of Hamburg’s harbour panorama as the Speicherstadt and the Michel.

The last of six identical Cap San Diego ships of the Hamburg Süd shipping company was delivered in 1961/1962. With a length of just under 160 metres and a width of more than 20 metres, it is one of the largest civilian museum ships in the world. Also it is still capable of sailing. Since 1988 the ship has been a museum ship. Since 2003 also a maritime monument and floating hotel, which today has its berth at the Überseebrücke in Hamburg and can be visited daily from bridge to hatch and from heart to head. Gerresheim Serviert GmbH took over the property exclusively at the end of 2009.

The Cap San Diego is not only a living museum ship. It also offers a beautiful setting for corporate and private parties, seminars and lectures, as well as cultural events in the salons in hatch 4. 300 m² for up to 180 people, with light and sound system, e- grand piano, screen and beamer and an original party, event and concert room for up to 500 guests in hatch 3. You can also spend the night on board in one of the original four single and four double passenger cabins.

Organizing an event in the belly of a ship is a unique experience for everyone, whether they are Hamburgers or not.
