A city for fish-lovers
If you’re hungry for seafood, you’ll be happy to hear that fish occupies a central role in Bremerhaven’s participation in the UNESCO “Creative Cities Network”. City authorities are keen to highlight the health and environmental benefits of fishing and are thus delighted to host events such as “Cook of the Year” and the “Fish Party”, a city-wide festival that combines seafood with local artistic productions.
If you want to experience how all this fish ends up on our plates, you can take a virtual ride on the GERA trawler ship museum. Whilst on board, via your smartphone, you can meet the captain, who’ll show you the ropes on a North Sea voyage.
A smart approach
Away from the water, Bremerhaven’s embrace of smart technology, including a service-oriented and value-added use of augmented reality, mixed reality and virtual reality applications, in addition to the city-wide approach to be accessible for all, led to its recognition as one of 14 “Digital Cities”, supported by the EU COSME programme.
