Überseestadt Bremen

Breathing new life into old docklands

Over the past 15 years, the “Überseestadt” has been under development in the Hanseatic City of Bremen’s western quarter.

The Senate of Bremen approved a master plan in 2000 to restructure the old docklands to the right of the Weser. The idea was to create a new district in the area – the “Überseestadt” (the “City Beyond the Seas”).

It seamlessly joins the list of outstanding European port regeneration projects and is one of the largest urban development schemes of its kind. Bremeninvest is driving development work in the Überseestadt, measuring 1km wide by 3.5km long, and the municipality of Bremen is investing around 485 million EUR through its special budget. Organisers can also count on additional private investments worth around 1 billion EUR.

Beach park in sight

The (formerly) “Weiche Kante” - in the meantime renamed "Waller Sand" is one of the only places where residents in Bremen’s western quarter can see the river Weser up close. A landscaped sand embankment should provide flood protection in the future and create a new space for leisure and relaxation along the turning basin.

In 2040 the Überseeinsel will be the quarter where people will want to live and work

The course has been set on the south side of the Europahafen for a new urban development jewel – the Überseeinsel, the 15-hectare former Kellogg’s site. The central location close to the water within the 41-hectare Europahafen-Süd district and the historic industrial buildings form the backdrop for a model and future-oriented quarter.
