About 40 miles up the River Weser, where the river empties into the North Sea, you'll find the relatively new city of Bremerhaven. Literally meaning 'Bremen's Harbour', this important port has a long maritime history and is a great place to visit on a day trip from Bremen. Major attractions such as the German Emigration Center, the Climate House 8° East, the German Maritime Museum and the Zoo at the Sea can all be found within the newly revitalised Havenwelten district. Why not head up to the viewing platform at the top of Atlantic Hotel SAIL City for fantastic views of the city and out to sea.
The Shop Window Fishery Harbor is another area worth checking out. Along this mile of restaurants, bars and other attractions, you will be able to sample some of the fresh fish caught in Bremer Haven. You can also learn about the trawlermen of the past on board the ship 'FMS Gera' and even see how to prepare your own fish at home in the Seafish Cooking Studio.
See just how important sea trade was and is to this area and get an insight into life at sea, in this fascinating museum. It also includes a harbour full of original ships.
Located on the very spot from which emigrant ships once departed, the award-winning museum allows you to experience the stations of emigration hands-on as well as understand immigration to Germany over the past 300 years.
Home to polar bears, penguins and seals, this wildlife attraction focuses on animals who live their lives at sea. There are however chimpanzees which sailors used to bring home from their travels.
This unique attraction allows you to travel around the world along the 8th longitude and experience the climates found in some of the most extreme places on Earth.
Pier 6 is the ideal spot to enjoy the stunning waterside views of Bremerhaven. Here you can enjoy an every changing menu of the freshest cuisine including local seafood and steaks.
This lovely restaurant has a warm and cosy atmosphere for you to enjoy lunch and dinner. Choose from a variety of locally caught seafood and indulgent steak dishes.
