Ports

Bremerhaven is one of the most important German ports, playing a crucial role in Germany's trade. The town was founded in 1827, but settlements in the vicinity were settled as early as the 12th century. The main attractions for tourists are found at the Havenwelten and include the German Emigration Center and the German Maritime Museum, featuring the Hansekogge, a vintage cog dating from 1380, excavated in Bremen in 1962, and the historical harbour with a number of museum ships.

Sassnitz is a port town on the Rügen Island of Germany. You can take your time to simply stroll through the old harbour enjoying its atmosphere, or visit the U-Boat Museum for a glimpse into Germany's history. If you have some time, take a day trip to the Nationalpark Jasmund Konigsstuhl to enjoy its lush forest and beautiful coastline with white cliffs.
