Bremerhaven, the seaport of the free city of Bremen, stands on the right bank of the Weser, at the mouth of the Geest, and was founded by Bremen in 1830 for the accommodation of large vessels. It has an excellent harbour, large wet and dry docks, and is remarkable for its great hospitium for emigrants, where 2,500 persons can be lodged.
