Saint Michel II in Kiel

Tomorrow a replica of Jules Vernes ship Saint Michel II will arrive Kiel.
In 1881 he sailed his steamship Saint Michel III from Nantes /France to Kiel /Germany. The Kiel Canal did not exist, so he sailed over the North Sea to Tönning
and further on the river Eider via Eiderkanal to Kiel and Copenhagen.
Eider-Kanal – Wikipedia

His brother Paul Verne wrote the story „De Rotterdam ŕ Copenhague á bord du yacht Saint Michel“. Later a appendix of Jules Vernes novel
Eight Hundred Leagues on the Amazon (French: La Jangada - Huit Cents lieues sur l'Amazone)
