Vegesack harbour

Casting anchor in Vegesack

Experience the numerous possibilities for discovery and get a whiff of Hanseatic maritime air!

Vegesack once was a flourishing seafarer and fishing village along the Weser, and it has retained its maritime character to this very day. Wherever you go, historic buildings and monuments remind you of the Vegesack wharf and fishing history. It’s not for nothing that the Vegesack maritime mile is a tourist highlight. The maritime mile offers a mixture of tradition, history and urban culture. It extends from “Schulschiff Deutschland” (School Ship Germany) up to Regina tugboat and breathes life into Vegesack’s history.

Something simply every visitor must try is a typical Vegesack young herring meal in one of the traditional pubs along the harbour mile, which offers a view toward the museum harbour and its numerous traditional ships.
