A city like Bremerhaven had to be invented first! Originally built as a seaport offshoot of its big sister, Bremen, Bremerhaven is now home to one of the world’s biggest container terminals. As a centre for science and research, the city is a leading light in marine and polar research, and its unique collection of museums attract people from all over the world. 200 years after it was first founded, Germany’s one and only city by the sea is constantly re-inventing itself! Coming from the main railway station, the tour starts at the Alter Hafen and takes in the Havenwelten museums before landing in the maritime economy of the 21st century.
