Detective Trail

On a treasure hunt in Bremerhaven

Attention sleuths! Become a detective and go on a treasure hunt. You start in the Havenwelten. With the help of a route description, you will set off on the approximately five-kilometer-long route through the city center. At various points you will find clues to solve the riddles. At the end of the tour, you will find out if you are a real master detective by checking a code.

Enter the four-digit code you get by solving the riddles into the lock of the treasure chest. If you solve everything correctly, the treasure chest can be opened and you get to take out a prize. On the Detective Trail you will get to know the seaside city of Bremerhaven from a completely different side. Creativity and fun are the order of the day. Experience one or the other surprise and learn interesting facts about our port city.

And this is how it works:

Buy treasure map
Solve the riddles
Learn exciting stories and anecdotes about Bremerhaven
Find treasure chest and receive gift

Halfway through, we recommend a short break in the park, near Villa Seebeck.

Buy treasure map:
The treasure map is available online at or on site at the two tourist information offices, Hafeninsel and Schaufenster Fischereihafen, as a print version. In addition, you can also complete the tour in the "Detektiv Trail" app, available in the app stores (iOS and Android).
