Took this ride some days ago, while in Bremerhaven. Had to book in advance, due to Covid-19, but booking was easy and fast. The bus takes you on a 1,5 hour trip around the harbour. They said, it might take a little longer, due to opening of bridges, or trains crossing. So, if you are on a tight schedule, you should know that, before booking. The guide had a good knowledge on what is going on in the harbour, his explanations were funny, too. Only, they were in german. Don`t know, if there are tours with an english speaking guide. You`ll get to see the cruise ships, ship yards, the container terminals, you`ll see the container carriers in action. The bus enters restricted areas, so bring your passport. You`ll get to see a lot more, too. It`s really worth taking this tour!

If you like Ships, then this round Is amazing for you. If you tell me that maybe ships are Not your thing, after seeing the Port and the big ships that Bremerhaven recieves as Well as knowing about the Containers movement and the cars Industrie, you will like Ships and all this round. Better on a Sunny day, but it Is complicated in Bremerhaven. We saw the Ice breaker Polarstern which belongs to AWI and goes to the Antartic and Artic. Price was 11 Euros per Person

It's a must do if you visit Bremerhaven to take a tour with the Hafenbus. They offer a standard city tour every day as well as a tour de fish on Saturdays which are both very interesting. For special events you can also book a tour de wind where you learn everything about energy production with wind mills.

Up close and personal... amazing to see the megacranes and ships operational even on a Sunday and to learn about the history of the old harbours, the fish harbours and the new, industrial harbours. Entertaining very passionate live tour guide doesn't stop talking for two hours. Only in German though. Passport/ID obligatory.
