Visit The Eagle With Us! @ Kiel Harbor
May 11 @ 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm

We are delighted to invite you to a tour of the Eagle during its upcoming visit to Kiel on the 10th of May 2019, as part of an annual deployment with cadets from the United States Coast Guard Academy. The primary mission is training the cadets and officer candidates, but the ship also performs a public relations role for the Coast Guard and the United States including calls at foreign ports as a goodwill ambassador. The US Consulate General in Hamburg has arranged this unique tour for The American Club members and guests. The exact boarding location and details about the program will be sent to registrants closer to the event.

The ticket price is 10 EUR for Members and 15 EUR (plus fee) for Guests. There is no ticket fee for Members of the Club. Also it is not required to provide an eMail-address for the registration.

You can register and buy your tickets here.


About the Eagle: The ship was built as the German ship “Horst Wessel” in 1936; it served to train German sailors in sail techniques until decommissioned at the start of World War II. The vessel had anti-aircraft armament installed and re-commissioned in 1942, serving for Germany. At the end of the war, Horst Wessel was taken by the U.S. as part of war reparations. Its sister ship, the Gorch Fock is the German Navy’s Sail Training Ship today.

Find out more about the ship here.

Important: We will know the exact dock of the ship briefly before the event only, for security reasons.
