Buhl-Events. You can zoom over the North Sea beach with blokarts, build a sturdy raft or extend your CV with an East Frisian school certificate. Building team roadsters is also an exciting venture. Once they are finished, a race is held to find the fastest roadster.

Blockarts – Sailing on dry land in Wilhelmshaven | ATLANTIC Hotel Wilhelmshaven

Blokarts – sailing on dry land

Blokarting is the ultimate emission-free challenge as a team-building measure or team event for all participants. Here you can find out who is able to act tactically within a team, observe the competitors and adapt their own strategy constantly to the changing conditions, in order to triumph in the end.


All you need is a level surface (parking lot, airfield or beach) with an area of about 100 x 50 m, a light breeze (about 2 Bft) and just a 5-minute introduction for “non-sailors”. The amazing design of the blokarts, the formulation of the challenge and the equipping of the teams with blokarts, helmets and gloves allow the participants to implement their racing tactics on dry land, powered as fast as 60 km/h solely by the wind. With up to 30 blokarts, experienced instructors (including the third-best blokart pilot at the world championship 2010), we have thrilled groups of up to 150 simultaneous participants.

Team building activities for meetings and events | ATLANTIC Hotel Wilhelmshaven

Ship ahoy! Your team on course for success

Noah built the Ark – and what will your guests construct? Find out with an incentive that transforms your guests into seafarers. With the expert advice of a real sea dog, all participants are first taught the basic expressions. After all attendees have lost their landlubber status, it’s off to the shipyard to get cracking. Teamwork is needed to turn a motley collection of wooden beams, ropes and sailcloth into a seaworthy water craft. From the bow to the stern, from keel to the top of the mast, your team will construct the pride of any fleet directly in the harbour. When it is time to cast off, you will find out whether your boat will win the Blue Riband or fail to rise off the bottom of the harbour basin.


And, at the end of day, when the ship’s cook rings the bell for the captain’s dinner, your guests will band together like real seafarers, tell the tallest stories and sing the song of the sailor coming home from the sea.

For 10 persons or more

German Naval Museum in Wilhelmshaven | ATLANTIC Hotel Wilhelmshaven

German Naval Museum

With the motto “People – Times – Ships”, the German Naval Museum gives you an insight into the chequered history of the German navies from 1848 up until today. The museum grounds are dominated by the guided missile destroyer “Mölders”, Germany’s largest museum ship.


On your circuit over and through the decks, past various weapon systems, workstations and living quarters, you can experience up close the atmosphere in which 334 crew members once lived and worked. Video installations show you life on board and the operational spectrum of the ship over its 34 years of service. The complex steam turbine, developing almost 70,000 HP, is explained lucidly. The controversial naming of the vessel is used as an example to describe the development of tradition within the Federal Armed Forces.


An inspection of the minehunter “Weilheim” and the submarine U10 rounds off this intriguing look at the living and working conditions in the German Navy. The original exhibits on the 3000 sqm of outdoor area offer you a vivid impression of the development of maritime technology from World War I to the present.

The Wadden Sea is a breadbasket, spawning ground, nursery and home for millions of animals. Where better can you begin a voyage of discovery to one of the world’s largest wetlands than in the visitors’ centre of the UNESCO world natural heritage in Wilhelmshaven?


In a wonderful deep-sea atmosphere, the visitor is lured into an almost unknown world.
