The museum ship has found its rightful place on the River Aura, right next to the Maritime Centre Forum Marinum. The location is ideal: the port is within easy walking distance, and the No. 1 bus
brings guests from the airport and bus station directly to the hostel. If arriving with your own car there is plenty of free parking space. You are also in the perfect spot to start your own walking tour of
the River Aura.
