Bremerhaven was a port of emigration, a town of farewells from 1830 to 1974. "Leb wohl!", "Do zobaczenia!", "Zei gezunt!" - words of farewell spoken by thousands of German, Polish, or Jewish emigrants, words full of hope, fear and tears. Over seven million people from Germany and Eastern Europe went via Bremerhaven to the New World,


Use the opportunity to embark on a personal search for your own ancestors in the family research room. The German Emigration Center grants you access to online data banks, which contain extensive information on people who have emigrated. The staff is on site and will gladly assist you.


In the archives of the Chamber of Commerce in Bremen there still are approx. 3.000 passenger lists from ships from Bremen. This accounts for 70 percent of the passenger lists from ships, which departed from Bremen (Bremerhaven) in 1907/1908, 1913/1914 as well as between 1920 and 1939 to the USA, Canada, South America or Australia.

Excellent guide and driver

By: Tom


Reviewed on: 23 Jan 2018

The guide was a former West Berlin native and spoke perfect English (well, the Queen's English anyway). He was knowledgeable, informative, and interesting. Our driver also spoke English and had grown up in East Berlin. He told us a bit of his story growing up. They were an excellent team and we really enjoyed our tours with them.
