River Cruise aboard the MV „Geestemünde"

The "Dicke Pötte Tour" on the Weser by MV "Geestemünde" along the docks of Bremerhaven to the seal banks at the border to the North Sea

Enjoy a two hour cruise on board the two decks of the passenger ship MV "Geestemünde", to the place where the saltwater of the North Sea mingles with the freshwater of the Weser River. Departure takes place from the New Harbor-West side, this way the passengers can experience a lock passage. Then the cruise passes by the new Kaiserschleuse, travels along the longest river quay in the world at the container-terminal all the way to the wadden sea at Land Wursten. Depending on the weather and tide levela stop to the seal banks can be made. On the return journey guests can also have a view of the Weser Islands Langlütjen 1 and 2 from the reling.
