Since its founding in 1827, Bremerhaven has been shaped as a business location by its closeness to the sea.
Today, the largest city on the German North Sea coast is Europe’s fourth-largest container port, one of the world’s leading automobile transhipment hubs, and an attractive logistics centre.
The modern fish and food industry, with well-known brandnames like FROSTA, NORDSEE, IGO and Deutsche See, together with a complete value-adding chain for the entire fish and foodstuff segment have been the hallmark of the city for decades.
Thanks to the close cooperation with the maritime industry, Bremerhaven has been restructured as one of Europe’s major competence centres for offshore wind energy.
The expansion of an internationally recognized research and development landscape, coupled with investments in highly attractive focal points for tourism, such as the Klimahaus Bremerhaven and German Emigration Center, have complemented trade and industry and provide a promising outlook.
