The “Windstärke 10” is a maritime museum in Cuxhaven, Germany – telling stories about the fishing industry and ship wrecks. It is located in a nice building close to the harbour but doesn’t contain too many exhibits. It has been created in 2013 as a combination of two former museums. The museum shows the problems of seafaring, you can learn about quotas for fishermen and their nets and knots.
We needed about an hour to visit this place but our youngest traveller had fun in a playroom with a fantastic submarine for kids. I’m unsure if the museum is worth the price for a visit – but on a rainy day it is definitely an option. Not far away you can have a stop at the old lighthouse and watch the ships passing into or from river Elbe.
