Welcome to The Maritime Quarter of Mariehamn – The Handicraft center of Åland with a Museum and wooden boat & ship building!
In the eastern harbour of Mariehamn you will find the Maritime Quarter, a living marine centre with boat building activity, a smithy and other handicrafts and a marina for traditional ships and wooden boats. You can visit our Ship and Boat building Museum and the newbuilt Museum of historical marine engines. There is an exhibition of historical work boats in the
Beacon, a copy of the former beacon at the Kobba Klintar pilot station.
Stroll around the traditional style Åland boat harbour, with wooden boats, sheds and boat-houses. Furthest out on the breakwater a Seafarers’ chapel is built. The galleass Albanus, the schooner Linden and the sailing wellboat Jehu were built in the Maritime Quarter and some thirty other wooden craft of various kinds have also been built here. The Albanus and Jehu, the Scooner Nordboen, the yacht Karolina and the brixhamtrawler Tibnor also have their homeport here.
In the Maritime Quarter there are five workshops from which you can buy Åland handicrafts of highest quality, among them a Saddle-maker. Our restaurant Pub Niska is serving pizza, soup and coffee.
