The neverending sky of Northern Germany. The constant beat of tidal waves. The toing and froing of mighty ships from every corner of the world. Old seafaring dreams. Navigation lights gleaming on the lightless river. Floating sails that belly in the sunshine. Seabirds that fly into the sunset. The surging of the storm tide. And the hooting of foghorns in the early hours of the morning. Sights and sounds that typify the busy deep-water seaport of Bremerhaven.

Many attractions await you in Bremerhaven that offer real eye-opening perspectives on the city by the sea. They are ranging from the German Maritime Museum and the Zoo to the wartime U-boat "Wilhelm Bauer".

Moreover local cuisine offers a variety of delicious seafood dishes. Several classy restaurants await you. We have handpicked the most prominent and included them in our travel offers.

Is a huge and busy seaport really able to grand you a relaxing holiday? Bremerhaven will just fit the bill! The city's distinct setting on the mouth of the Weser almost makes it merge with the North Sea, ensuring a steady supply of clean and fresh air. Why not go on a leisurely walk along the many shore promenades at the dyke as the sea breeze tousles your hair? Alternatively, you can hire a bicycle to explore the marshland to the south of the city or the tiny seaside resorts to its north. Another great idea for a day out is a trip aboard a real square-rigged sailboat on the North Sea.

Since its foundation in 1827, Bremerhaven and its overseas harbour have developed into one of the largest port cities in Europe. Situated at the mouth of the Weser into the North Sea, visitors to the Hanseatic city enjoy a maritime ambience. The atmosphere of Bremerhaven can be experienced especially during a stroll along the Weser dyke.

Harbour tours

Exploring Bremerhaven by ship on a harbour tour could be the highlight of your trip. A one-hour tour in a glass-roofed ship takes passengers through all seven overseas ports and gives an insight into port life with its shipyards, huge ships and much more.
