A drone flies over the Hanseatic City

Aerial photos of Bremen - from the North of the city, we'll fly over the Überseestadt (New Harbour District) to the East. The photos show every facet of life in the Hanseatic City.

Unless otherwise stated, these photographs were taken in 2023.

Take-off from Bremen North

The former premises of the Bremen Woll-Kämmerei (BWK) woollen mill lies in the heart of the Bremen North district and is an important industrial site. It's where modern manufacturing businesses sit alongside a century's worth of historic buildings, giving them a new lease of life. A good example of this is the Vocational College campus, which is currently under construction.

Bremen Industrial Park: heavy industry

If you travel upriver from Bremen North, you'll soon pass by the ArcelorMittal steel plant, which is sited right next to the Bremen Industrial Park. The park is home to more than 50 companies that are primarily involved in plastic and metal processing, recycling, laboratory services and logistics.

Überseestadt (Bremen's New Harbour District) from above: always upwards and onwards

The New Harbour District is always worth a second glance, especially from a bird's eye perspective: one of Europe's largest urban regeneration projects, it has been more than twenty years in the making and features impressive historical and modern constructions. And developments continue.

Green Bremen: Seehausen-Strom

Bremen is Germany's greenest major city. You see this everywhere you walk or cycle, after all, cycling is the city's favourite pastime. From a bird's eye view, it's easy to see why Bremen scores so highly in this respect. A good example of this is the Seehausen-Strom district.

Bremen Hansalinie Industrial Estate: where cars get going

In the south-west of Bremen, right next to the A1 motorway, you'll find the Bremen Hansalinie Industrial Estate. It's a real success story, home to a number of businesses that supply the Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen's Sebaldsbrück district, which is only a stone's throw away. It's a sought-after location, so the site is constantly being developed and expanded.

Bremen East - in the bend of the River Weser

When you look at the edge of the photo, you'll see the River Weser. It's a main artery and the most important waterway in the Hanseatic city. Bremen boasts a total of four port facilities, of which the Hemelingen river port is its inland harbour. The surrounding Hemelingen district is crisscrossed by a multitude of transport routes and is home to major industrial companies.
