Schulschiff Deutschland ("School Ship Germany") is a German full-rigged sail training ship, maintained as a historical monument and museum ship. She was employed as a school ship for the merchant marine beginning in 1927. The ship is moored at Vegesack, in the Federal State of Bremen, Germany. Since the name Deutschland was at the time of its construction already assigned to an unbuilt naval warship (a pocket battleship, later renamed the Lützow), its official name is Schulschiff Deutschland.

The ship carries 25 sails with a total sail area of 1950 square meters.

The top speed on engine is 12 knots, and on sail 18.2 knots.
