There is also lots to discover in the region surrounding Bremen. Set in the idyllic Devil’s Moor, the artists’ village of Worpswede has numerous exhibitions and galleries to visit. Topping the bill in Bremerhaven, the city by the sea, is the Harbour Worlds complex – featuring the Klimahaus, the German Emigration Centre, the German Maritime Museum and the Zoo am Meer – and the Schaufenster Fischereihafen tourist and leisure centre. In the coastal resort of Cuxhaven on the North Sea there is a fine swimming beach, mudflat walks to Neuwerk island and boat trips to Heligoland for tax-free shopping.
Where once huge glaciers shaped the landscape you will now find the beautiful Lüneburg Heath. With more than ten adventure parks, wildlife parks and zoos, it is one of Europe’s top destinations for days out. The town of Papenburg with its idyllic canals is also the home of cruise ships. Discover luxurious ocean liners and amazing shipbuilding innovations at the visitor centre and covered shipbuilding docks of Meyer Werft.
