The Olsen Way Highlights

You will get to experience the advantages of Braemar’s size on this discovery of German waterways and cities. Sailing under the low bridges of the Kiel Canal, docking in Flensburg and berthing just footsteps away from Travemünde’s picturesque promenade are all only possible on smaller ships. The ports selected for your itinerary showcase centuries of maritime history. You will have the chance to discover Hamburg’s busy shipyards, naval base and International Maritime Museum; Bremen’s World War II U-boat bunkers; and Flensburg’s seafaring past at the town’s Shipyard Museum. Other highlights on your journey include cruising the River Elbe and the Flensburger Förde.

Introducing Braemar

Braemar is the smallest ship in our fleet, which means she can get even closer to many of the destinations we visit. Her flatter hull means she can sail sizerestricted waterways, such as the ultra-narrow Corinth Canal, and dock closer to city centres.
