Geocache Description:

Unweit des Seedeichs liegt die Fundstelle des sogenannten "Zuckerschiffs". Bei schönem Wetter ist hier unter freiem Himmel auch Gelegenheit für eine kleine Pause. smiley

June 05, 2017: For information in English scroll down, please.


Auf seinem Weg über die Nordsee geriet vor rund 400 Jahren ein vierzehn Meter langer Frachtsegler in Seenot und strandete vor Uelvesbüll.
Mitte der 90er Jahre wurde das Wrack (wieder-)entdeckt und nach der Bergung zwei Jahre lang als Ganzes in einer hochprozentigen Zuckerlösung konserviert. 100.000 Kilogramm Zucker wurden hierfür verwendet.

Das "Zuckerschiff" ist weiterhin im Schifffahrtsmuseum Nordfriesland in Husum ausgestellt und kann dort besichtigt werden.

Wir wünschen Euch einen schönen Aufenthalt und viel Spaß! smiley



🇬🇧 Find spot: Sugar-Ship
During nearby dike reinforcement work, the so called 'Sugar-Ship' was found at this spot.

About 400 years ago, on its way across the North Sea a freight sailboat got in distress: The 14 m long, two-manned freighter ran ashore near Uelvesbuell.
The wreck was (re-)discovered in the mid nineties. After recovery the ship as a whole was preserved in a highly concentrated aqueous solution of 100,000 kilograms sugar.
The wreck is still shown at the 'Schifffahrtsmuseum Nordfriesland' in Husum. If you have time, the museum is well worth a visit. :-)
