The combination of maritime and urban experiences makes Bremerhaven truly special. The “Havenwelten”, the tourism centre of the city, is directly adjacent to downtown Bremerhaven with a busy pedestrian zone. The cultural centre of the city with theatres, museums, movie theatres, cafés and restaurants, is here as well. Further to the south you can find the fishing harbour, where visitors can enjoy the aquarium and delicious food in the numerous fish restaurants. In Bremerhaven’s north the glamorous international harbour, where gigantic freighters and container ships arrive, is always worth a visit.
For those who wish to stay closer to home, however, the next harbour, our very own Lloyd Marina Bremerhaven, is right outside the door. So, don’t be surprised if you meet real sailors in our Boardinghouse - the reception desk doubles as the harbour master’s office. Of course, the “Havenwelten” isn’t only a place to anchor your boat; it is also home to many tourist attractions and innovative museums.
