The SS Rickmer Richmers was built in Bremerhaven Shipyards in 1896 as a full rig steel ship with a span of 3,500 square metres. It was confiscated by the Portuguese during the First World War and used as a cargo ship by the English. After the Second World War, the ship operated as a training ship for the navy. In 1962, it was unrigged and merely functioned as a depot. The "Windjammer für Hamburg" Society brought the Ricker Rickmers to Hamburg where it was restored and renovated to become a tourist attraction at the great piers at St. Pauli Landungsbrücken.
