Klimahaus® Bremerhaven 8° Ost

Climate trip around the world at 8° East!

Hardly any other topic is as fascinating and moving at the same time as the weather, the climate and its natural or man-made changes. The Klimahaus® Bremerhaven 8° Ost is the first world of knowledge and experience that is dedicated to such a complex topic as the climate. The biggest visitor magnet among the four exhibition areas is the “journey” starting in Bremerhaven: On this tour around the world along the eighth eastern longitude, visitors can gather authentic impressions of life in the different climatic zones of the world. This and many other areas as well as regular special exhibitions make our neighbors a special exhibition space for young and old.

Further information can be found on the website of Klimahaus® Bremerhaven

German Emigration Center Bremerhaven

What does it feel like to leave one’s home behind and start a whole new life somewhere else?

In the German Emigration Center, you can follow the fate of an emigrant: the farewell from home; the passage and arrival in the New World. Elaborate reconstructions and multi-media stagings breathe life into the emigration.

Since the prize-winning experience museum’s expansion, you can now travel further into the interior of the USA. In a replica of New York Central Train Station, you can discover how emigrants settled down as immigrants in their new homeland, built up a home for themselves and where they found work.

In the adjacent annex building you can set off on a personal search for traces and, amidst everyday utensils, get to know 15 moving family stories of immigrants who had come to Germany since the 17th century.

Immigrants and emigrants united in the best European museum 2007.

The Pingelturm

High up on Bremerhaven's historic landmark.

Experience the history of seafaring at the Pingelturm. The popular sight originally served as a lighthouse for navigating ships. Its special location at the mouth of the Geeste was an important orientation point for ship captains. Today, the Pingelturm no longer serves as a lighthouse – the viewing platform, with its beautiful view over the harbour, is a popular spot for numerous tourists.
