This is a must visit place when you come to Papenburg, although it is nothing much to wow but it is definitely worth to pay a visit whilst we couldn't find in KL/Malaysia.

My family drove all the way to Papenburg, Germany to go through the Meyer Werft for a 2 hour tour. They were thoroughly disappointed. Most of the tour consisted of video footage and 75% of the presentation was in German

Definitely worth a visit when you are close. The tour starts from the centre of papenberg, and a coach will take you to the werft. An impressive sight. The most enjoyable part in my view (I'm an engineer at heart) is simply observing the massiveness...More

If you book the reguar tour, the visitor center is a disappointing experience. There is also a pricey VIP-tour with more information, a closer look at the cruise ships inside of the shipyard. Anyway ... not worth the visit

I can only say one word 'WOW'. The tour of this massive shipyard describes an insight into the building of modern era shipyard and services. You can see building of the massive giant cruise ships here. A must visit if you are in Papenburg.

Definitely a place to go to if you can get some sort of tour. I was very impressed with watching the ship building process.
