The cog can be visited again

From Monday, 15 March, the German Maritime Museum (DSM) / Leibniz Institute of Maritime History will reopen parts of the house. With a time slot ticket that can be booked online, guests can visit the permanent exhibition about the Bremen cog from 1380 and also pay a visit to the harbour tug STIER.

The DSM is back after the lockdown: in a first opening step, the cog hall will be open to the public again daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. from Monday, 15 March. In addition to the freely accessible exhibits, the harbour tug STIER can also be visited in the museum harbour. The extension building remains closed for the time being due to the construction of a new special exhibition.

Visits to the cog hall and the STIER are possible with time slot tickets, which can be booked online at Alternatively, telephone bookings can be made Monday to Friday between 10am and 6pm on 0471 / 48207-827. Guests choose a desired time and are then allowed to stroll through the permanent exhibition for 90 minutes. On the occasion of the reopening, there is initially a reduced admission price of 4 euros, concessions 2 euros. There are still hygiene regulations on board and in the house to ensure that all guests can enjoy culture safely. Only a limited number of people are allowed on the ship and in the Kogge Hall at the same time. Guests are asked to keep their distance and wear medical mouth and nose protection. The hygiene rules and further visitor information can be found at

What's new in the Kogge Hall

During the closure, preparations for new exhibitions continued behind the scenes. For example, the exhibition "Cocoa, Coffee, Tobacco - Intoxicants in the Past", a cooperation project between the DSM, the University of Oldenburg and schoolchildren from Oldenburg, will start in April. The young minds researched the historical transport, trade and consumption of narcotics.  The online opening can be seen on Facebook ( and YouTube ( on Saturday, 3 April, from 11.30 am. With the appropriate time slot ticket, those interested can also delve into the research findings live in the Cog Hall.

The online tours continue to bring guests close to various exhibits and through individual exhibition areas and will remain a supplement until the infection situation allows groups to meet again. All online offerings can be found at
