The new exhibition showing the quarter’s development has reopened in the “Speicher XI” warehouse.
The Überseestadt Welcome Centre in the “Speicher XI” warehouse has been open since 2004, providing information on developments in the Überseestadt. A lot has happened in Bremen’s newest quarter since the Welcome Centre was opened 13 years ago. Modern, interactive and ready to be experienced.
The basic concept of the permanent exhibition is to guide visitors through different rooms where they can experience the Überseestadt, its history and its development through posters, films, audio material and the urban planning model for the Überseestadt. Each room has a fictional character who tells stories about various aspects of “his or her Überseestadt”. For example, an interior designer invites you into her office and explains how the Überseestadt has blossomed into the quarter it is today.
A barista then invites you into his guest room and tells you about the various gastronomic, cultural and leisure possibilities the quarter has to offer. A family explains what life is like “overseas” from their living room. In the time travel room, visitors meet a former dockworker who reminisces about times gone by, and they can take a closer look at individual projects using the impressive Überseestadt model in the common room. What’s more, the transport room, green space and exercise room, and the harbour room are all sources of useful knowledge about the transformation of the Überseestadt from the former docklands to a vibrant quarter where people live and work.
The Überseestadt Welcome Centre is run by Wirtschaftsförderung Bremen GmbH (Bremeninvest) on behalf of Bremen’s Senator for the Economy, Employment and Ports.
The Infocenter Überseestadt is open Tuesdays to Sundays from 11:00 to 18:00.
