Bremerhaven is the largest city on the German North Sea coast. In 1827 the harbour was founded by the free Hanseatic City of Bremen. It has become the centre of German Polar and Marine research, largest frozen food producer based in Europe and was once the largest German port for cruise ship tourism. It is now one of the greatest European container terminals and one of the most important hubs for the import and export of vehicles.
Since 1857 North German Lloyd and more recently its successor Lloyd Werft have made its home here. Along with a population of almost 120,000 people. Together they help give this city its economic strenght and impetus.
