Sustainable activities

In harmony with nature and landscape

Leave the car behind and explore Bremerhaven on foot. Do you prefer to cycle? Then you'll be spoilt for choice between shorter cycle paths or challenging long-distance cycle routes, such as the popular River Weser Cycle Route or the longest cycle path in the world, the North Sea Coast Cycle Route .

You can experience a car-free zone, peace, space, fascinating bird life and impressive water buffalo on the largest nature reserve in the state of Bremen on the Luneplate. Lake Erika and Lake Apel are oases for those seeking recreation and invite young and old to linger. Popular local recreation areas are the Public Park (Bürgerpark) and the Fitness and Wellness Park of Speckenbüttel(Gesundheitspark Speckenbüttel). The parks with lots of greenery and water are equally popular with walkers, joggers, boaters, trim trail athletes, playground romps, disc golfers, flower lovers, sun worshippers, recreation seekers, family day trippers and barbecue lovers. It gets fairytale-like in the Sculpture Park of Thiele. Even climbers get their money's worth when they visit the boulder hall.

A change of perspective is promised on trips with the harbor barges through the Overseas Harbors and the Fishery Harbor, excursion ships on the river Weser all the way to the container terminal, as well as with the speedy RIB boat. During the "mini-cruise" with the River Weser ferry, a regional bockwurst during the crossing is not to be missed.

Experience something in harmony with nature and landscape. Get close to nature and create great vacation memories with little effort.
