Specialists for general cargo, high & heavy, and bulk cargoes

The port facilities in Bremen specialise in the transhipment and handling of conventional general cargo, high & heavy and bulk cargoes. This includes project cargo, wood and wood products, steel and steel products, as well as vast quantities of loose goods such as ore, coal and grain. Bremen is home to Germany’s leading freight village as well as many other logistics centres.


Directly at the mouth of the river Weser where the water is deep enough for sea going ships, Bremerhaven offers ideal conditions for handling containers. The maritime city is one of Europe’s leading car hubs and is also turning onto a key port for the offshore wind industry.

Europahafen Bremen

Now a maritime boulevard

Europahafen used to be the largest and most modern dock in the world. In the meantime, it has lost its original purpose. The urban development plans for the Überseestadt district in Bremen envisaged converting the former dock into a tourist attraction. The port management company bremenports was commissioned by Bremeininvest, the responsible development company, with refurbishment of the quays and sheet piling, the installation of dolphins and pontoons for use by sports skippers and recreational shipping and creating access to these pontoons.

125 years after it was originally inaugurated, Europahafen has meanwhile evolved into a maritime boulevard and is the prime tourist attraction in the new Überseestadt district in Bremen.
