Elise Schulte


The German steamship Elise Schulte went down in the deep under a journey from Rotterdam to Kirkenes loaded coal 11. January 1942 right under the bridge in Dyrøysundet in Troms. She was stuck for several hours and the crew sent out an emergency signal about the accident. A rescue boat was sent out to assist which arrived the shipwrecked vessel at the same time she sank. It exist two shipwrecks with the same name in Norway, and this have sometimes resulted in some confusion. The wreck of this particular Elise Schulte rest today south of the bridge in Dyrøysundet on a depth of 5 to 32 meter. Also see the other Elise Schulte who shipwrecked in Trøndelag in 1926.
