In Focus

Strong Economy

The fourth largest European container port, the largest automobile transhipment centre in Europe, the largest German fish processing location, offshore wind energy competence centre, top maritime destination and city of science – these are some of the attributes that make Bremerhaven’s economy so strong.

What makes Bremerhaven unique?

Bremerhaven is part of the Federal State of Bremen. With 119,000 inhabitants, Bremerhaven is the largest city on the German North Sea coast. Here you can find out what makes Bremerhaven so unique.

Innovative Bremerhaven

LBremerhaven is a maritime competence centre. The scientific institutions cooperate closely with industry. Fostering the innovative strength of the companies in Bremerhaven and Bremen is a declared goal of Bremen’s state policy.

Short distances

Short distances make life pleasant. In Bremerhaven, you can reach the decision-makers in politics, administration and also in economic development quickly and easily. We will support you and establish the contacts.

Culture and events

Bremerhaven is rich in excellent cultural institutions. The Klimahaus Bremerhaven 8° Ost and the German Emigration Center are internationally known, the local cultural and creative scene offers many surprises, and maritime events attract thousands of people every year.

More for the money

Real estate prices are moderate, and the quality of life is high. Fresh air and northern German nature are free of charge. The many guests who spend their holidays in Bremerhaven and the region also know the value of this.

Companies that are interested in settling or expanding will be given the opportunity to operate in a particularly sustainable manner through suitable framework conditions in the industrial estate.

In the north and south of the seaport city, there are various harbour areas which are particularly suitable for the transport of heavy-lift goods. In addition, there are suitable industrial properties in the immediate vicinity of the heavy-load quays. Producing at the port pays off.
