A stock exchange boat on the Weser on its way.

Water taxi "Lottjen"

By water taxi over the river Weser from the Harbor Worlds to the Shop Window Fishery Harbor

"Lottjen", the "lucky one" connects the two tourism areas Harbor Worlds and Shop Window Fishery Harbor Fischereihafen across the river Weser. Around 20 passengers can be accommodated on board the original Heligoland stock exchange boat. With its offer, the sponsoring association wants to bring the guests closer to both the history and the associated design of the boats as well as the nautical tradition of the stock exchanges.

Heligoland tradition in Bremerhaven

"Lottjen" belongs to an association that was founded in March of this year. A goal of the up-to-date 12 members from Bremerhaven and surrounding countryside, Hannover, Heidelberg and Heligoland is it to contribute with the water taxi to the homeland care by the receipt and the use of Helgoländer Börtebooten. "Lottjen"

was built 1965 in traditional handicraft way from oak and carefully renovated by the association members in the last three years. The boat also belonged to the delegation of a stock exchange boat fleet, which last year sailed to the Reichstag in Berlin in order to be included in UNESCO's list of intangible cultural assets. Meanwhile stock exchange boats are recognized as German cultural heritage.
