Visit the museum in this one of its kind 4-mast sailing vessel!
Pommern is the only sailing vessel in the world that is preserved in its original condition.
She was originally built by a German shipping company in Glasgow, Scotland and launched in 1903. In 1923 Gustaf Erikson bought this ship who owned the largest sailing ship fleet by doing so.
Pommern sailed until the outbreak of World War II and was mainly used to transport wheat between Australia, Ireland and England.
Since 1957 Pommern has been home in the western harbour of Mariehamn and represents a proud era in the sailing- and past history of Åland.
Pommern is also available for private events outside opening hours.
