Tour de Fish

Everything about the fish

Why is Bremerhaven called the "largest refrigerator in Europe"? Where was the first German fish steamer built? Where are almost 10 million fish sticks made every day? All this and much more can be found on a two-hour trip by bus through the Fishery Harbor. A visit to the historical fish trawler "Gera" should not be missed.

The start and end point of the new route is the German Maritime Museum. Right after leaving the starting point, we start off with the theme: On the Kennedy Bridge the bus guests are asked to look to the left, because there, before the Historical Museum Bremerhaven, began the history of the German deep sea fishing. The guide tells of the clever Friedrich Busse, his observations and ideas. These not only led to the first fish auction in Germany, but also to the construction of the first German "Sagitta" fish steamer, which began its first journey in 1885. This laid the foundation stone for "Fischtown" Bremerhaven. A visit to the Historical Museum is definitely worth it here!

But we continue to the Fishery Harbor, the focus of our tour with the Shop Window Fishery Harbor. It goes along the Europe-wide major companies of the fish processing industry as well as the former moorings of the fishers, auction halls and frozen storage. See where the high-speed steamers used to be loaded with ice and the bunker stations supplied the coal for the steam engines on board. Our guests guide you on this "fishing trip" from the past to the future. Enjoy this entertaining and interesting bus tour. During the half-hour visit to the FMS "Gera" the hard life on board a fishing vessel is mediated. On the way back you have the possibility to get off at the stop in the Shop Window Fishery Harbor (Hoebelstraße), to stroll and eat fresh fish. Or you will accompany us back to the Harbor Worlds Bremerhaven, where the bus tour ends again at the Old Harbor.
