Explore Denmark per bike and boat and experience the convenience of your sailing hotel!
Port of departure: Kiel-Holtenau
The barquentine Atlantis was built in 1905 in Hamburg as a lightship. She served as a floating beacon in the Elbe estuary, where building a lighthouse was not possible. After 70 years of service on the Outer-Elbe, she was converted to begin her second life as a sailing ship.
Above & below the waterline, the Atlantis' hull has been built with the characteristics of a classical sailing ship. A thorough restauration in 1984 saw her acquire a barquentine rig: the foremast is square-rigged, the main and the mizzen mast are gaff rigged with staysails.
Mediterranean atmosphere on deck
In 2005, the Atlantis was acquired by the Tallship Company, a Frisian shipping company. Her interior was converted to the level of comfort and luxury the company is renown, respecting her traditional atmosphere which makes her so desirable. The saloon is spacious and comfortable, a stylish bar and a well-equipped hotel kitchen make for complete comfort aboard. The Atlantis feels at home in the Mediterranean Sea: her large upper deck with bar offers a wonderful space to lounge and enjoy the warm southern European climate.
The Atlantis has capacity for up to 140 guests on board for day-sailings and has berths for 36. Our guests can enjoy the excellent food and drink served by experienced and enthusiastic staff. Along with being on an authentic triple masted barque with an experienced deck crew and all the necessary modern navigational equipment ensure a safe trip, makes this a wonderful nautical experience!
