Überseestadt (New Harbour District)
Breathing new life into old docklands
Bremen's Überseestadt docklands are currently undergoing a transformation. A whole new district of the city is being created in an area covering 300 hectares – right next to Bremen's city centre and with lots of exclusive waterside locations. The historical docks and port industry are now complemented by modern architecture. Vast red-brick warehouses have been converted into office and retail complexes.
But the maritime economy is still a presence and provides a captivating contrast between the traditional and the modern. And Überseestadt is not just a place to work, people live there too: the first new buildings on the banks of the river Weser and lofts in converted warehouses have been successfully launched on the market.
