Stader Sand Docking Area
The docking area of the Stade Sailing Club at the Schwinge lock gate in Stadersand is tide-dependent and will partially dry up during extreme low tides. The boats are left in boxes on the main dock or lengthwise along the docks upstream. Docking options for guests should be discussed with the harbourmaster (04141-7305). When there is heavy flow at the lock gate, this can cause strong currents moving downstream. The association has about 100 slips, and guests are welcome. There is a boat lifting system, a mast crane, and a skiff slip (limited). The clubhouse is located above the dock, and guests can register to use it. Additional information on travelling to the Hanseatic cities about 5 km away and the shopping located there can be found at the clubhouse. Power and water hookups are located at the docks, as is a playground. There are bicycles that guests and their children can borrow free of charge. www.seglerverein-stade.de
he Hanseatic City of Stade, its picturesque historic city centre, and the oldest harbour on the Lower Elbe – the Hanseatic Harbour of Stade – are all worth a visit. With its exhibits on the city’s history, including prehistory, early history, and the Hanseatic Period, as well as its harbour-related artefacts and changing exhibitions, the museum in the Schwedenspeicher (Swedish Warehouse) is located right on the old Hanseatic Harbour of Stade. www.museen-stade.de
The municipal harbour is home to the historic coastal motor ship GREUNDIEK, which offers guests rides as a cultural ship and an ambassador for the maritime landscape of the Lower Elbe. www.greundiek.de
Even the harbour crane in the municipal harbour is open to the public. Guests can scale the maritime monument upon request. www.stader-hafenkran.de
