Welcome. So glad to meet you here. We are the Kamper Kogge. A foundation with a bunch of enthusiastic volunteers that keeps afloat this Medieval cargoship. Like the rest of the world we are currently taking things at a slower or at least a different pace. Although we can’t welcome guests at our wharf in Kampen or sail to events national or abroad yet to share the Hanseatic past of Europe, we are taking this time to work on a renewed website and sprucing up our home quarters.
Looking for more information or interested in visiting or inviting us when things are safe again? Feel free to contact us
Use firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to know more about participating in one of our activities, such as a tour around our wharf and ship or joining us for a sailing trip on the river IJssel.
Use email@example.com if you want to book us to your own event or invite us to your town.
Did you know that the Kamper Kogge is the only reconstruction of a cog ship in the Netherlands? There are a few in Germany which we hold dear to our hearts and meet up with regularly to share experiences and work together with when we visit the same events.
So far we have sailed the North Sea and the Baltic Sea and have visited maritime and historic events in Germany, Belgium, France, the United Kingdom and of course the Netherlands.
Building our cog took approximately 150 cubic meters oak wood harvested in Denmark, France and the Netherlands.
