Vegesack The suburban area of Vegesack has a tradition of being Bremen’s seafaring outpost. Here, where the rivers Lesum and Weser meet, nearly 400 years of maritime history have left a palpable imprint. While whalers and fishermen no longer set sail from Vegesack harbour, shipbuilding is still of great importance to the local industry and, in fact, the entire region.
This tour is completed by a visit to the German merchant navy’s former training ship “Deutschland” – a majestic three-master which is also known as “The White Swan of the River Weser”

Minimum attendance: 20

Worpswede - Village of Artists


Worpswede Situated in the lowlands of the Teufelsmoor (“The Devil’s Moor”) about 28 kilometers from Bremen we find the village of Worpswede. Due to its idyllic scenic setting this simple farming community became home to numerous landscape painters in the late 19th century. And as more and more artists followed their example, the place developed into a notable colony of creative minds such as Fritz Mackensen, Otto Modersohn, Fritz Overbeck, Hans am Ende, Heinrich Vogeler and, of course, Paula Modersohn-Becker to name only a few.
With its unique spirit and multi-faceted cultural “scene” Worpswede still continues to attract artists and connoisseurs from all over the world. www.worpswede.de


Seestadt Bremerhaven

Bremerhaven

Although Bremen and Bremerhaven are divided by a distance of roughly 60 kilometers, they both form part of Germany’s smallest federal state – which is also called Bremen.

Being the largest seaport on the German North Sea coast, Bremerhaven is characterized by a marked maritime atmosphere. Here, more than 7 million emigrants embarked on their passage across the Atlantic between 1830 and 1974. Their journey to a new life in a new world is documented in the German Emigration Center (“Auswandererhaus”).
 
Apart from that the Maritime Museum (“Schifffahrtsmuseum”), the “Klimahaus” (an interactive display of the world’s climate zones), the Seaside Zoo and the impressive overseas port are well worth a visit – which is made perfect by lunch or dinner at a seafood restaurant in the “Schaufenster Fischereihafen” area.
