Bremerhaven, Germany

Bremerhaven has a long history as a trading port. It is also famous for SAIL Bremerhaven – a regular tall ship festival which attracts some of the biggest tall ships and windjammers in Europe. Some are original sailing ships and others are replicas built for sail training or naval recruits. It has the wharf space to show off the bigger ships to the public and the entrance river is wide for parades of sail.

If you are joining or leaving a ship here it will be very busy. Make sure you study what is distinctive about your ship – especially the masts, as we may not know exact dock berths. Please take the ships phone number with you and make sure you have printed proof you are sailing on board as crew to get in the festival entrance gates.
