    My trip to Europe is probably not going to happen this year. I've had a lot of medical problems since last October. I just get over one thing when something else major happens. Thanks for asking. Perhaps 2012.

    I visited both the International Maritime Museum in Hamberg and the Marinemuseum in Dänholm at the end of 2009. Both are great museums. The Dänholm museum is a must see for East German Volksmarine collectors. Although it covers other areas to include WWI, WWII and Bundesmarine, it's a small museum that is a bit off the beaten path. The International Maritime Museum is huge an covers all aspects of German civil and military naval history. Even though I spent several hours there I only saw a small fraction of the museum.

    Johan,

    Thanks for the latest museum. To see all of these interesting places would take two (perhaps more) trips. Plus there are several museums that have not been mentioned yet that I would like to visit.

    Regards,

    Gordon

    Hi Gordon

    There is also a Marinemuseum in Dänholm in the former DDR ( near Rügen )
    This is the museum where they have the Volksmarine Schellenbaum .

    4-5 weeks? To have that much vacation time I'd probably have to be in Europe already The last time I had 2 weeks off in a row as 1997. We Americans really don't know how to take care of ourselves.

    If you need some help for making a plan, let me know. I have done simular trips in the past 20 years all over europe.

    Gentlemen,

    Thanks for the suggestions for museums to visit.

    Steve,

    I've always wanted to visit the Panzer museum in in Munster. I've trolled their site numerous times. It would be great to have some fellow forum memebers along on the trip and very helpful to have their input as to places they would like to visit. I'll have to get my maps out and do some logistical planning for locations of museums and try and get some kind of an idea of what is do-able.

    Phil,

    It would be great to meet you in person. No real idea yet as to where in Germany I/we will be on this proposed trip. Depends who intends to sign on and where they want to go.

    Regards,

    Gordon

    I've got Polizei friends in S-H that I've wanted to visit, along with a good friend in Copenhagen and northern Belgium. So for me a trip to northern Germany would be enticing.

    The significant museums I can think of up in that area are the BGS Museum in Lübeck and, not terribly far away, Panzermuseum Munster.

    http://www.panzermuseum-munster.de/

    Considering that where I live is 4 hours to the nearest large city, these two museums are right on top of each other

    There is also apparently some other museum in Lübeck related to Cold War border control:
