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.

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.
