Welcome to Überseestadt Bremen

One of Europe’s largest urban development schemes

Since the early 2000s, the former docklands in the Hanseatic City of Bremen’s western quarter have been under development to create a new "Überseestadt”. Bremeninvest has been commissioned by Bremen’s Senator for the Economy, Employment and Ports to improve infrastructure, put commercial and residential properties on the market, help companies to establish their business there and provide the various stakeholders in the Überseestadt with the support needed to fill this new district in Walle with life.

With just under 300 hectares of land, the Überseestadt in Bremen is one of Europe’s largest urban development schemes and one of its outstanding port regeneration projects. The Überseestadt has since evolved into a “world of possibilities” and is home to a wide range of service providers, offices, businesses, port services and logistics, leisure and cultural activities, and living spaces.

The Überseestadt’s location near the city centre is an important factor: It’s just under two kilometres away from Bremen Cathedral, from where you can walk along the Schlachte promenade by the river Weser. The Überseestadt can also be reached directly using public transport, the A27 and A281 motorways, and from Bremen Airport via the B6 road.

New connecting roads and other measures to improve infrastructure have created links to neighbouring areas. A new residential area has also been built over the past few years, part of which has been subsidised by the State.
The Überseestadt is vibrant and growing: Further construction projects are currently being planned and carried out, while the existing range of new and diverse restaurants, cultural attractions and leisure activities already make the Überseestadt a growing space for adventure.

Let us guide you through the different areas of this new quarter and find out the latest news, plans, offers and information about the Überseestadt in Bremen.
