  • Details

    In 1907 the senate of Hamburg ordered a sounding vessel at Janssen & Schmilinski shipyard. In August 1908 Schaarhoern was launched and a short time after that commissioned.

    During the first world war Schaarhoern served as an auxiliary minesweeper and outpost boat for the German navy. In the second world war Schaarhoern was deployed as a sounding vessel which she was originally designed for. At the end of the war she helped with the evacuation of refugees from the trapped eastern territories. After the war the technical equipment on board Schaarhoern was further modernized but she became less and less cost-effective. Seen as an anachronism (steam below - high tech atop) she was decommissioned in 1971.

    In the context of a job-creation measure the historical steamer was extensively restored and since then she is one of the most popular operational museum ships in Hamburg harbor.
