The viewing platform is a great place for photos of the harbor and Bremerhaven. It was extremely WINDY - and cold and gloomy - on the day we went up there. I recommend going there a bit before sunset to capture daylight and then sunset photos.

A terrific spot on the 20th floor to get a hang of the geography, River Weser and huge container terminals at the fourth largest container terminal in Europe where more than 2 million cars arrive a year!

Walk from the Columbus Centre over the Glass Bridge through the foyer of the Klimahause and out the doors at the back then into the lift area on the south east corner. Buy your ticket from the machine for your ride to the top, step out onto the viewing platform for what you may think as the view of a... More

We did not visited inside as the weather was wonderful. Kids wanted to spend time outside. The place being on the river beach is safe and beautiful day time also filled with lights during night.

Perfect Place to have a look over Bremerhaven, the harbor and river Weser. So enjoy this beautiful view from very high over Bremerhaven.

We were lucky enough to witness a storm crash into the industrial harbours north of Bremer-Haven. What a spectacle! I have vertigo, but the way the platform was constructed left me feeling comfortable and secure (no overhangs, and the railings are slanted backwards towards you). Fantastic views, whatever the weather.

It was freaking windy up there, but a wonderful view. You can look all around and see the ships come and go

A lift brings you in rapid speed to the 20th floor providing a proper viewing platform that allows a nice perspective of Bremerhaven. The price for adults is 3 Euros and Children 2E. We spend around 30 minutes taking in the sights. Word of advice: It can be windy on the platform, so dress accordingly.
