The Harbour (Open-air ship museum)
Front of the Colombuscenter there is a harbour with some ships and a submarine. You can take a walk on the ships and go into the submarine to see how the mariner could live in such a small place for month.

In the nearby harbor basin, the last German side trawler FMS „Gera“ provides you with an insight into the drudgery of the fishermen, the authentic potato ship „Hansa“, the popular harbor cruises, and the new bicycle station with Tourist Information complement this tourist area.

Welcome to the harbour of Bremerhaven. This north German town offers you a huge museum of navigation! And a lovely little Sea zoo! Funny penguins there! Otherwise Bremerhaven isn´t a touristic place. It the second biggest port in Germany and so there is a lot of industry. The city itself has a high unemployment rate. At least they have an Icehockey Team in the second league over here!
I have been there several times, the pics are from 1980, when I have been nine years old! :)
