With a population of 114 000, Bremerhaven is the largest city on the North Sea coast and fulfils vital functions for the region as a whole.
Bremerhaven originated as a port location, but is developing more and more into an important maritime competence centre for Europe.
As the fourth-largest European container port, automobile transhipment hub No. 1 in Europe, Germany’s premier fish processing centre, heart of the offshore wind energy industry, innovative location for maritime technology, research and development site with scientific facilities of national and international renown and, not least, as a prominent destination for maritime tourism, Bremerhaven offers plenty of “docking points”.
The people in Bremerhaven are used to thinking in a maritime and cosmopolitan way. Every day, a well-trained workforce moves commodities from all over the globe, applies its know-how in handling sensitive foodstuffs, builds the largest offshore wind turbines, and engages in research and develop for the world of tomorrow.
