Development milestones

The Überseestadt has set sail

With an expanse of just under 300 hectares, one of Europe’s largest ever urban development schemes is being carried out in Bremen’s former docklands. The Überseestadt has since developed into an interesting, vibrant and innovative quarter.

In the following section, we’ve put together some “development milestones” for you.

Water-based local recreation area

The (former) "Weiche Kante" - now renamed "Waller Sand" - is one of the few places where residents of Bremen's West Quarter can see the Weser at close range. In future, a landscaped sand embankment will provide flood protection and a new space for leisure and recreation along the turning basin.
