Visitor information

The exhibitions at the Robbe & Berking Yachting Heritage Centre explore the fascination of life in, around and on the water. Located next to the Robbe & Berking Classics yacht building yard, the Centre emphasises yachting history as a central focus. In addition to each exhibition, the Centre also houses the largest yachting library in the world, plus two galleries, a museum shop and a sizeable museum restaurant with a wonderful view of the historical centre of Flensburg.

Reclaiming the city! - This summer will be the Flensburg bicycle summer! Three months under the theme "Flensburg als Fahrradstadt". The focus of this three-month event is the exhibition “RIDE A BIKE! Reclaiming the City! ”, An exhibition by the German Architecture Museum DAM, Frankfurt am Main. A large exhibition that impressively shows in exemplary cities such as Copenhagen, Groningen or Oslo what urban development can look like in order to attract even more people to bicycles without affecting life in the city for other population groups. This exhibition is accompanied by a large and varied supporting program throughout the city of Flensburg. The exhibition starts on June 12, 2021 and ends with the European Mobility Week on September 22, 2021.
